“Honestly, I am a very avid traveller. In fact, I travel a lot and visit 4 to 5 new countries every year. I travel every 2 months to see a new country as travel is that much important to me,” Parineeti told IANS.

“I am that kind of a person and Australia is one of those places, I was waiting to visit as I had heard so much about it. I am an advanced scuba diver so I take up diving trips a lot. In fact, I recently came back from a diving trip but, now I have a very few things left on my bucket list which include South America and Iceland,” said the “Ishaqzaade” star.

On the acting front, Parineeti is gearing up for the release of “Golmaal Again”, which also stars Ajay Devgn, Arshad Warsi, Kunal Kemmu, Tabu, Neil Nitin Mukesh and Shreyas Talpade. (IANS)

Asked about the importance of making documentaries, Hirani said: “I feel why should we see only fiction? We should watch documentaries because they can be very interesting as well.”

“Earlier, they never used to get platforms but I think they should get a platform so that more and more people can come forward to make documentaries. I think documentaries are really engaging as they are real, and fiction can’t beat facts.”

The “3 Idiots” director said documentary filmmakers make films that are close to their heart.

“Documentary filmmakers choose subjects which they feel about, which they are affected by or which they have seen around them. So, I feel it’s nice that people come to know about these things,” he said.
