Parineeti Chopra talks about sob stories on reality shows 

Competitive reality shows are among the most watched genres of Indian television but they have often been criticised for creating unnecessary drama by focusing on sob stories of the contestants. Viewers have often complained that such over dramatisation drags the shows and creates cringeworthy scenes when judges also start sobbing.

There have also been rumors that such stories are often fake and judges and contestents follow scripts to create the drama. Actress Parineeti Chopra, who is about to appear as a judge in the show 'Hunarbaaz: Desh Ki Shaan' recently refuted these rumors in a statement given to The Indian Express.

The actress said, "I think people who are not associated with reality shows speak like that. I am giving first-hand information from my experience. We are never given a script nor told what to say. We have never met these contestants and react to their performances as it happens. I think if there is an emotional story, why wouldn’t we share it? The talent is not fake and they get just one take to perform. The reality is very real on the show."

Opening up about her upcoming big screen projects, Parineeti said, "I am doing bigger and better projects right now. I have a Sooraj Barjatya film and Sandeep Vanga’s next with Ranbir Kapoor. I think these are as amazing as doing a show like Hunarbaaz. I think I am at a pretty good place."
