Playback singers can’t be replaced by actors: Parineeti Chopra


Bollywood actor Parineeti Chopra, who has lent her voice for a song in her upcoming film Meri Pyaari Bindu.

Even though actors are going behind the mic to sing more often, they cannot replace playback singers.

“I think playback singers cannot be replaced. They are professional and technically trained. If we actors are passionate about singing, we can sing, but that does not mean we are here to replace them.”

When we dance in a film, no one asks why we are dancing though there are professional dancers… Then why in singing,” Parineeti said at the trailer launch of Meri Pyaari Bindu.

The Ishaqzaade star was accompanied by the film’s lead actor Ayushmann Khurrana, and director Akshay Roy.

Seconding her thoughts, Ayushmann, who is a popular singer too, said: “It becomes easier for actors to emote the song better on screen.”

Parineeti’s song Maana Ke Hum Yaar Nahin released recently and it has been appreciated. Her cousin Priyanka Chopra commented “proud of you baby”, leaving Parineeti happy.
