- Parineeti Chopra tweeted her statement on Tuesday
- Parineeti has been criticised for some of her comments earlier
- She also said her delayed response is because she was travelling
In her statement, Parineeti revealed what she meant while speaking at the academy. "As long as I was in school in Ambala, my brothers and I did not have access to a car and driver to take us to school, so they took the bus and I cycled. My dad followed close behind me to ensure I reached school safely. My dad did have a car that he used for his office work but we kids did not use it for school travel," she wrote.
This appears to be a distortion of what Parineeti actually said while interacting with the students of the academy. Parineeti's interaction at the academy can be watched in a video shared in a Facebook post below, which slams the actress for her alleged "sob story of no money no car". "Coming from the same school I probably also remember the car her father used to have. And going to school on a cycle was a trend those days and also a privilege not everyone had," read the Facebook post from May 23.
In her statement, Parineeti also mentions the reason for her delayed response to the criticism. "I am responding now as I was travelling out of the country all this while. I would request everyone concerned to please not let menial things like this take precedence over what I was actually trying to say," she said in her statement.
