Parineeti Chopra, who has recently signed for the Ajay Devgn starred Golmaal Again, the fourth installment of the Rohit Shetty’s comedy franchise, before getting into the grind fulfilled one of her dreams. It is that of becoming a scuba diver and now she wants to continue pursuing it even amidst work commitments.
Parineeti Chopra recently received a certificate for her open-water diving course as she is now eligible to dive up to 120 feet in an open sea. However, the actress wants to further explore her skills and has decided to take up an advanced course for scuba-diving at night.

On the other hand, Parineeti revealed that it was her first scuba diving experience in Bali that got her hooked on to it. After that, she has explored many such islands, from the Caroline Islands in Micronesia to Phuket to Great Barrier Reef in Australia. The next on her list seems to be New Zealand’s Galapagos and Azores Islands in Portugal. Talking passionately about her love for the sea, Parineeti also expressed her desire to dive in heavy currents to see some more of aquatic life.
As far as Bollywood films are concerned, the actress is quite excited to be a part of the Golmaal franchise and she has been prepping for her role in the film. Reportedly, she will be playing a quirky character who will be kicking and punching like the boys.
