Parineeti Chopra on Monday recalled how 2012 film Ishaqzaade gave her the Special Mention at the National Award right after her debut in 2011 with Ladies vs Ricky Bahl.
Thanking Aditya Chopra, Arjun Kapoor, casting director Shanoo Sharma, and the entire team of Ishaqzaade, Parineeti shared some pictures of the certificate and citation she received from Pranab Mukherjee. She also mentioned that Arjun was the first friend she made from the industry and will always remain so.
"I never thought I would win for Ishaqzaade but when I did, it was the biggest one in the country!! That too for my first lead role! I just cannot believe it. But this scares and humbles me, and will definitely make me work even harder in the future!! Thank you jury," Parineeti told PTI in 2013.
THE FILM THAT GAVE ME THIS 🙏 #NationalAward #SpecialMention #Grateful #Blessed #8YearsOfIshaqzaade •Thankyou Adi, Habib Sir, Arjun, Shanoo, Gauahar, and my entire Ishaqzaade family for changing my life forever• @arjunkapoor You became my first friend from the industry and will always remain so 🧡
Actor Arjun Kapoor says his debut film "Ishaqzaade" was a great learning experience and as he looks back he feels the movie also taught him to believe in himself. Arjun made his big screen debut eight years ago with Habib Faisal's "Ishaqzaade," co-starring Parineeti Chopra.
Yesterday I found my original shooting script of Ishaqzaade with notes scribbled in them from 8 years ago. At that point of time in my life, self-belief was one thing that mattered the most for me & that's what I got out of Ishaqzaade. Thank you Aditya Chopra for taking a chance with me, Habib Faisal sir for making me a part of your vision, Shanoo Sharma for drilling confidence in me & asking me to finally express myself, Parineeti for being the best co-star that I could have wished for & the entire team of Ishaqzaade for being patient with me every day on shoot - all your silent support made me believe that I could do this, but most importantly Thank you all of you who welcomed me & that wicked smile of mine !!! (PS - that’s me actually looking at the sun & reminiscing in the first picture.) #8YearsOfIshaqzaade @parineetichopra @yrf @shanoosharmarahihai #HabibFaisal
