Meera Chopra, gearing up for the release of her upcoming film “Safed” on December 29, recently unveiled aspects of her relationship with cousins Priyanka Chopra and Parineeti Chopra. In an interview with Siddharth Kannan, she candidly discussed the absence of support from her cousins when she embarked on her journey in the entertainment industry.
While Meera acknowledged her close association with Priyanka Chopra’s family, she expressed a distinct lack of sisterly camaraderie with both Priyanka and Parineeti. She revealed feeling disconnected from the industry’s usual alliances and emphasized the absence of support from her cousins upon entering Bollywood.
“There was not much closeness between us from the start. When three or four girls join the industry, they help each other. That did not happen for me. I never asked for help, and they never offered any,” Meera shared, acknowledging the disparity in support within the family.
Meera Chopra reminisced about spending considerable time with Priyanka and Parineeti during their younger years. However, she noted a shift in dynamics over time. She disclosed a lack of familial conversation between their families, especially with Parineeti, stating, “When families don’t talk, I don’t want to cross that line which would hurt my family. There was never a family feeling with Parineeti. I am very close with Priyanka’s family. The sisterhood is missing, not from my end.”
Although acknowledging Priyanka Chopra’s generosity, Meera underscored the absence of reciprocal sisterhood. She highlighted the importance of a mutual connection in fostering a sense of familial bond, a sentiment she felt was missing in her relationship with Parineeti.
Earlier this year, Priyanka Chopra attended Parineeti’s engagement ceremony in Delhi but was absent from the subsequent wedding. Priyanka’s social media post, featuring an old picture of Parineeti, conveyed heartfelt wishes for the occasion, emphasizing new beginnings and sending love to her cousin.
Meera Chopra’s revelations have shed light on the complexities within familial relationships, particularly within the entertainment industry, prompting discussions about the importance of support and solidarity, even among relatives navigating the same profession. As “Safed” approaches its release, Meera’s statements have brought attention to familial dynamics beyond the glitz of Bollywood.
