Why Ajay Devgn is Parineeti Chopra's 'box office India'

The actress says that Devgn provides her with all the industry gossip.


Parineeti Chopra, who is busy shooting for Rohit Shetty's Golmaal Again, claims that Ajay Devgn is her trade guru.

"I call him (Ajay) my box office India. He gives me all the 'gupshup' (gossip) on the industry. I always message or call him to know about any new film. I can plan my life according to his information. It's always correct. He is my trade guru," the actress said.

Chopra, who has starred in Yash Raj Films projects like Ishaqzaade (2012), Shuddh Desi Romance (2013) and Daawat-e-Ishq (2014), said with Golmaal Again, the fourth part in the Golmaal series, she has joined the big league.

"I don't think anybody in this country has not seen Golmaal. My dad knows every character by heart. I think he was the most excited when I signed Golmaal because he is the 'massy' audience. For me, it was an honour to sign the film because it was literally like joining the big league," she said.

According to her Golmaal Again is one of the biggest films of the year and being a part of it is a bog deal for her. "Being Rohit Shetty's (director) heroine, actor Ajay Devgn's was a big deal for me. The movies that I have done were with boys mostly of my age. It was like stepping up into the big game. So obviously, I felt proud of myself because I earned that," she added.

The film has a big star cast including Ajay Devgn, Shreyas Talpade, Tusshar Kapoor, Arshad Warsi and Kunal Kemmu. "It is one of the most expensive and biggest franchises. I don't think any film has reached four. Abroad we have. Dhoom has reached three and so has Housefull. Golmaal has the biggest director and cast so, obviously it's like joining the big league and I'm very happy to be a part of this gang," Chopra said.
