Mumbai, Sep 9: Actress Parineeti Chopra sent a brief shockwave spiraling through her Facebook fans by revealing that she’d spent one million buying two shirts. But lest you think she’s been profligate with her money, read the hashtags – she was shopping in Jakarta and the currency she used was the Indonesian Rupiah.If you do the math, as her followers did, a million Rupiah converts to just over Rs 4,500. So the Ishaqzaade actress wasn’t being as extravagant as it may have sounded.
The comments thread on the post, which has over a lakh-and-a-half likes so far, is teeming with explanations of the Rupiah to Rupee conversion.
Recently, Parineeti caused a social media commotion after shedding her girl-next-door image for a sultrier new person in a photoshoot for a fashion magazine.
The actress was last seen in Shaad Ali’s 2014 film Kill Dil and has since been on a sabbatical of sorts on the advice of her mentor, Yash Raj Films boss Aditya Chopra.
The actress who made a spectacular debut in 2011 film Ladies vs Ricky Bahl, went on to cement her footing in Bollywood withIshaqzaade. This early success was followed by a string of mediocre hits to flop films like Shuddh Desi Romance, Hasee Toh Phasee, Daawat-e-Ishq and Kill Dil.
