Parineeti Chopra, unveiled her holiday videos in Australia and celebrated India’s Republic Day and Australia Day on Tuesday. During media interaction the actress said,
While reminiscing her memories of working with the team and on the video, Pareenita said, this has somehow become a passion project for the actress. "As actors, we associated with many films, brands, in the industry and we take up different jobs for different reasons, but Australia tourism, the trips we do every year, the videos, somehow is just a passion project for me. I told them the first year I met their lovely team, Australia was one of the countries I wanted to visit since I was a child. I wanted to live there, study there. When I became an actor I never thought I would get the chance to be the ambassador for tourism for Australia."
"It was really a very emotional day for me when they came to me, and I told them, 'Whatever you guys want. Let's sit together let's make a great plan and make this big'. I want the people of India to love Australia as much as I do. Which is why I put so much effort into this, I just love the country and the people." she added.
The videos feature a spectacular montage of iconic Aussie experience. In the films, Parineeti, can be seen cuddling a koala, learning to surf at the Gold Coast, getting a taste of Australia's freshest produce, enjoying a bride eye view of Surfers Paradise on the Sky point climb, spotting whales, watching the sunset over the Red Centre in Uluru and standing amidst Brunce Munro's beautiful art installation, 'Field of Light'. One of the videos also features the actress sing for a background tune.
During an interaction session on the stage, Parineeti answered, to the host's comment of how the venue looked like Gold Coast in Queensland, by saying, "I will tell the truth, the water is there, the beach is there, but the Gold Coast is beautiful and unfortunately we haven't taken care of our beaches as much as Australia has.
Parineeti who traveled to the sovereign country in 2017 said she had a cast on her foot due to an injury during the period and regrets not being able to enter the water at Gold Coast.
When asked what she would like to do on her next trip in April 2018, she said, "Hands down scuba diving. Last year we could do it because of my foot; I wanted to but couldn't do so many things. As actors, we shoot on sets all the time and now I want to shoot underwater and I am really excited for it."
The actress is set to travel for another trip in Australia after she finishes a schedule for her next film 'Namaste London' in April.
