"Ranveer was the first person who caught me dancing on 'Sheila ki jawani' song in front of a mirror. He saw me from far and this 'Band Baaja Baaraat' actor who had still not appeared in front of you all, told me that you are going to be an actress," Parineeti said at the Zee Cine Awards 2016.
"And it turned true. He made this prediction even before Adi (Chopra) and Maneesh (Sharma)," she added.
Adding to Parineeti's statement, Ranveer said: "See I discovered a 'heera' (diamond) first".
Parineeti made her Bollywood debut in 2011 with "Ladies vs Ricky Bahl", which also starred Ranveer.
On the work front, the 27-year-old actress will next be seen in the upcoming movie "Meri Pyaari Bindu", with debutant Akshay Roy.
She will be seen playing an aspiring singer in the Maneesh Sharma production, which will also star Ayushmann Khurrana.
