Parineeti Chopra says working in an action film was at the top of her to-do list and her upcoming films Code name Tiranga fulfilled that dream.
In the espionage thriller, directed by Ribhu Dasgupta, the actor will be seen essaying the role of an agent alongside Harrdy Sandhu.
“As an actor, we are constantly blessed with many firsts throughout our career. I am thrilled that in my 11th year in theaters, I am doing my first full-blown action film,” Parineeti said in a statement.
The 33-year-old actor, best known for films such as Ishqzaade and Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraarsaid the film challenged her physically but also allowed her to express herself freely.
“I’ve pushed myself and my body for this intensely physically challenging film, but I’ve really enjoyed every bit of it.
“I had always wanted to present myself in a completely new way on screen with the action genre and I couldn’t have found a better film to do the same because it has allowed me to freely express and show the audience what I can when presented with an opportunity like this,” she added.
Backed by T-Series, “Code Name Tiranga” will hit theaters on October 14.
