Parineeti does her workouts and diet, according to her requirements for the films. Since her debut movie, she is all busy doing one or the other movie. For her 2014 movie Hasee Toh Phasee, she lost 8 kilos to fit into her role. Chopra needed to look lean and sexier, hence she had to plan this extreme weight loss and that too in only a month’s time. Though, this is not at all healthy for a person like Parineeti as she is not obese.
This can be achieved by interval training, regular cardio workout, jumping jacks, taking proper sleep, and very importantly, eating well.
