It's never a bad time to binge on sweets. We know that dessert lovers will give a heads-up to this. Sweets not only give your meals a sense of completion but also make your hearts sing. Moreover, traditional sweets, in the form of festive mithai or prasad, are closely related to the emotions of people in India. Well, we got a glimpse of this in Parineeti Chopra's latest post. The actress, who was in Punjab for a while now, wrapped her shoot for Imtiaz Ali's Chamkila. Encapsulating her entire experience, Parineeti shared a photo dump on Instagram. We, being foodies, couldn't miss her sweet indulgences, obviously. Yes, one of the pictures in the post showcased Parineeti holding kadha prasad. Of course, the actress must have visited a Gurudwara in this span of time. The dark brown smooth and velvety halwa prepared with ghee looked absolutely rich and enticing. Parineeti did not stop there. The other slide in the post featured sumptuous boondi ka ladoo. Now that we have seen this, all we want to do is go and grab a mithai for ourselves.
Parineeti Chopra's post also featured her pictures with the director Imtiaz Ali, glimpses of scenic locations in Punjab, and other members, presumably from the set of Chamkila. For the caption, she stated, “The best human, the best director. Imtiaz sir – Thank you for making me your Amarjot.. Thankyou for letting me surrender. @imtiazaiofficial.”
She further added, “Diljit - I love you my sabse accha dost! Ab kiske saath gaungi main (Diljit, I love you my most favourite friend. Now, who will I sing with?) @diljitdosanjh. Thankyou mera Chamkila crew. You were the best. This film was my meditation.”
