Though it’s been a while since we saw Parineeti Chopra in her elements on the silver screen, the actress seems to be having a gala time during her break. Along with many accolades and appreciation that she has received in the past few years, the actress has received yet another honour on the occasion of Independence Day. She has been invited to become the Grand Marshall & Guest of Honour at the prestigious New York India Day Parade this year.
On August 16, in the heart of New York, the Non-Resident Indians (NRI) gather from all across North America to celebrate India’s independence in a grand event called the New York India Day Parade with over 40 floats & hundreds of people. Parineeti Chopra will be sharing this dais with many achievers from the NRI community, and will be interacting with them. Parineeti will also be ringing the opening trade bell at Nasdaq, apart from other key event appearances. As Grand Marshall of the India Day Parade, she will oversee this grand procession.
Talking about the moment, she said, “I believe India’s story should be celebrated everywhere, and the journey of NRI citizenry is nothing short of incredible. They are the most successful community of expatriates and I treasure this opportunity to celebrate our independence in such a festive manner in New York.”
