Parineeti Chopra at the Udaipur airport
Parineeti Chopra is all set to tie the knot with AAP leader Raghav Chadha on September 24 in Udaipur. Ahead of her big, fat wedding, an old video of Parineeti is doing the rounds on the Internet where she predicted her own marriage. Interestingly, Parineeti reacted to that old video in her recent interview and called herself a "Jyotish" (astrologer). Asked about her marriage plans, the Ishaqzaade actor said in an old interview (it happened four years back) with Radio City that she would get married within coming four years. Parineeti said back then, "Well, that's what I'm hoping for. I'd like to settle down in another three to four years. Having said that, I won't settle down until I find someone with whom I can gel and be sure to spend the rest of my life. Till then, I'll be happily single."
In a recent interview, when Parineeti was shown this video by Radio City, she laughed and said, "4 saal pehle maine bola ki 4 saal mein meri shaadi hogi? I am very impressed with my own self ki maine aisa kuch prediction kar dia (Four years back I predicted that I would get married in next four years? I'm very impressed with my own self that I had predicted something like this)."
