PARINEETI CHOPRA APPOINTED AMBASSADOR FOR AUSTRALIA TOURISM
Bollywood’s newest bubbly girl Parineeti Chopra has been painting the town red ever since her dramatic weight loss and now the actress has went on to being appointed as the first Indian woman Ambassador in Friend of Australia (FOA) advocacy panel by Tourism Australia. Yes, after having endorsed several FMCG brands, the gorgeous Parineeti is now all set to take the responsibility of building up close ties between both the countries—Australia and India.
At a press conference on Monday, when Parineti was asked to comment on her latest association, she said, “I feel really good. Even if not for this honour, I find myself very connected with Australia. When I first time went to Australia, I literally did a ‘Saashtang namaskar’ (kissed the ground) when I came out of the airport. It was this one location I have been waiting to go to. In fact, I travel a lot and visit 4-5 new countries every year… I am that kind of a person. But Australia is one of those places, I was waiting to visit as I have heard a lot about it and researched so much. So when I went there it was like meeting a star. It was like, you have only seen him on TV or seen in pictures, but now meeting in person… so that was the kind of feeling I had, and I feel very loved over there.”
The Friends of Australia program has been devised as a way for Tourism Australia to foster mutually beneficial and long-term ‘friendships’ with those they regard as unique, positive and influential storytellers. Parineeti Chopra joins fellow Indian Friends of Australia—Chef Sanjeev Kapoor and renowned Cricket Commentator Harsha Bhogle, who have been great advocates for Australia, encouraging Indians to visit the country.
On the work front, stunning, Parineeti Chopra will soon be seen in Rohit Shetty’s Golmaal Again, which also stars Ajay Devgn, Arshad Warsi, Tusshar Kapoor, Kunal Kemmu, and Tabu. The film is scheduled to release late this year. Pari is also teaming up once again with Arjun Kapoor for Dibakar Banerjee’s Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar.
