Priyanka Chopra Has a Sweet Family Connection With Her ‘Frozen II’ Co-Star
The long-awaited Frozen II hit theaters last week and is currently one of the most-talked-about movies. Those who have seen the film already might know that Idina Menzel and Kristen Bell have returned as Elsa and Anna.
However, did you know that Priyanka Chopra is a part of Frozen II as well? In fact, this is a special project for her as Chopra will get to work with a close family member. Read on below to learn more about how Priyanka is involved in Frozen II and who she is working with.
Priyanka Chopra voices the Hindi version of ‘Frozen II’ with her cousin
Frozen II was released in India on November 22, and viewers who watched the Hindi version got to hear Priyanka’s voice as Elsa. Meanwhile, the character Anna was dubbed by her younger cousin: Indian actress Parineeti Chopra.
Back in October, Priyanka announced this news on social media, writing: “Mimi and Tisha are now Elsa and Anna! The #ChopraSisters are finally coming together for Disney’s Frozen 2. Can’t wait for you guys to see us… I mean HEAR us bring these amazing, strong characters to life in Hindi.”
More recently, in honor of the release of Frozen II, Priyanka made another post on social media.
“We used to talk to each other about doing something together,” she said in a Twitter video. “I mean it can’t get more iconic than this if we had to ever kick-start something. It was best as Elsa and Anna. Pari is just as bubbly as Anna is and I am probably as calm as Elsa.”
Priyanka Chopra and Parineeti Chopra are very close in real life
Priyanka’s mother and Parineeti’s father are siblings, so the two actresses are cousins. Even though Parineeti is about six years younger than Priyanka, they are quite close to each other.
It has been said that, after attending university in England, Parineeti moved back to India and lived with Priyanka, who was already a huge Bollywood actress at the time. With Priyanka’s help, Parineeti also got started in acting and became an award-winning actress herself.
Priyanka and Parineeti appear a lot on each other’s social media. Parineeti was even a bridesmaid at Priyanka’s wedding to Nick Jonas in 2018.
Priyanka and Parineeti seem very happy to have worked on Frozen II together, and it does not seem like their collaboration will stop there. Earlier this year, Parineeti shared that she would love to be in a “two girl action movie” together with Priyanka.
‘Frozen II’ has made more than $350 million worldwide
Frozen II came out six years after the original movie was released in 2013. The first Frozen film was about Anna going on an adventure to find her sister, Elsa, who was living in a winter kingdom by herself with her magical powers.
Meanwhile, Frozen II follows Anna and Elsa as they try to search for the origin of Elsa’s powers. The beloved supporting characters — Olaf, Kristoff, and Sven — appear in Frozen II as well.
Frozen grossed more than $1 billion worldwide, so there is a lot that the new movie will have to live up to. So far, Frozen II has reportedly made more than $350 million at the box office and broken a few records.
Its premiere was the biggest animated movie opening of all time and it also grossed the most amount of money for an animated film on an opening date. Given its popularity at the moment, a lot of experts believe that Frozen II will have no problem reaching that $1 billion mark very soon.
