Parineeti has been with YRF for over a year in the marketing department. Given a one-off chance to audition for the film, she impressed both Maneesh and Aditya Chopra and was immediately cast for a role as one of the ladies who fall prey to the smooth-talking guile of Ricky Bahl. “I think Parineeti was phenomenal in her video test. I had no doubts that I wanted her in my film. In fact, when I worked on the script, I had her at the back of my mind, having interacted with her while she was in office,” said Maneesh Sharma.
