The bubbly actress Parineeti Chopra is in London shooting for the Hindi remake of British drama The Girl On the Train, for which Emily Blunt earned a nomination at the BAFTA award for Best Actress.

The role is that of an alcoholic woman who has delusions of horrible happenings in a home that she sees from a train every day. While Blunt drank her way right through the shooting of the film to remain in character. Parineeti, meanwhile, has no such ambitions. “I am not drinking, just acting,” she divulges.

 

The actress’ decision is unlike several other actors who have been drunk while playing alcoholics. Highest on the ‘high’ list is the mighty Dilip Kumar, who actually drank to look convincing as the sozzled lover in Bimal Roy’s Devdas. Another example is Aamir Khan, who  otherwise doesn’t touch a drop of alcohol in real life, but drank himself silly for a song in a Dharmesh Darshan film where he had to act drunk.
