This is a screenshot of the video Parineeti posted on Instagram
This innocuous picture that she posted in lieu of the offending video has also been met with disdain in the comments thread. "Where is your co-star the umbrella man?" one user asks.
Last August, Parineeti invited a similar backlash when folks accused her of being "fake" after a birthday message video she posted for a friend went viral. In the video, which also featured Alia Bhatt, she told her friend to "eat less and become thin." Alia objected saying, "Arre." Parineeti had recently lost a lot weight, which she defended against body-shamers, and many accused her of 'fat-shaming' her friend. She told news agency IANS that she set no store what the Internet had to say. "It's by people whom I don't know. So, (trolls do not affect me) not at all," she told IANS.
Here's the birthday video that went viral:
Parineeti Chopra debuted in Bollywood in 2011 film Ladies vs Ricky Bahl. However, it was her next film Ishaqzaade which made her famous. She then starred in a series of films - Shuddh Desi Romance, Hasee Toh Phasee, Daawat-e-Ishq and Kill Dil - which did mediocre business. Parineeti took a sabbatical of sorts and returned with impact vis-a-vis her new fitter self. She then appeared in a special song in 2016's Dishoom and signed up for Meri Pyaari Bindu, opposite Ayushmann Khurrana. She will also be seen in Rohit Shetty's next Golmaal film.
