Parineeti Chopra has a pretty valid inspirational person in her own family in the form of cousin Priyanka. However, when asked about who has inspired her, her answer is very different.
“It’s Ellen (DeGeneres). She’s one of those people who spreads so much happiness through her show and has helped or changed so many lives. She is what Oprah Winfrey was, so many years ago. I started watching her show more than 10 years ago and Ellen is the one person I would be star-struck by. If I ever met her in real life, I think I would start crying. Whenever I have felt low, depressed or down, I watch her shows because they make me happy and feel good. Ellen is one of my heroes as she’s helped me on days when I have not felt good. I am dying to meet her one day. On an emotional level, I feel motivated and inspired all the time by what she says as it really matters to me,” said the actress, according to Pinkvilla.
Talking about whether she’d ever take up anything on the small screen, Chopra replied, “I would love to be on TV because I do think I have the personality for it. Whenever I have gone on TV, I have got great feedback about it. My persona is definitely suited to host or judge a show and when I have time I will definitely do one. I am waiting for the right show to come up.”
Chopra will be seen next in ‘Meri Pyaari Bindu’ opposite Ayushmann Khurrana.
