Parineeti Chopra, who's been taking a break from the big screen after her back-to-back flops, has recently bagged a deal and it's big! She has become the brand ambassador of the Prime Minister’s Beti Bachao Beti Padhao campaign.
Buzz is Parineeti and her team went through great lengths to bag this deal. Media reports suggest that she gave her PR team a pep talk and they are looking for new endorsements for the actress. A source also suggests that Pari was keen on the saving a girl child campaign because it would help her connect to her regular audience. The announcement was made on Tuesday evening at the launch of the campaign in Gurgaon by Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar.
However, a report in NDTV suggests that Health Minister Anil Vij, whose department is one of the key departments for the implementation of the programme, had claimed that he had not been kept in the loop regarding this appointment and further mentioned that he had not even been invited for the programme. Parineeti dismissed this by calling it a matter of miscommunication."There was no displeasure about my being appointed. It was just that he didn't know at that point... because the decision was made late at night and it was announced before everybody could be brought into the loop," she said.
Pari further added, “The campaign started with Haryana, so I was the first person they approached. I am happy that they saw some merit in me and found me worthy of spreading this message and of course, because I am born and brought up in Haryana. I will have a meeting with the CM to discuss what I am going to do next on-field.”
