After earning a triple honours degree in business, finance and economics from Manchester Business School, Parineeti Chopra returned to India and joined Yash Raj Films as a public relations consultant. She made her acting debut with 'Ladies vs Ricky Bahl'. Her next film 'Ishaqzaade' opposite Arjun Kapoor was a huge box-office success for which she even received the 'Filmfare Award For Best Female Debut' and won the 'National Film Award- Special Mention'. She recieved lots of praises for her next two films- 'Shudh Desi Romance' and 'Hasee Toh Phasee'. This was followed by 'Daawat-e-Ishq' and 'Kill Dill'. Both the films failed to create magic at the ticket windows.
