She said: “Meri Pyaari Bindu released alongside Baahubali and hence did not get love then. But that’s the film that I get the most love for today. And that’s what matters. There are many films like this that don’t make the numbers at that time, but they always find you.”

Parineeti continued by saying that every movie acquires a life of its own. She said that she have a feeling that the audience will find it someplace. Any movie, excellent or horrible, gets noticed, in her opinion. Some movies won't perform well at the box office. However, it will be seen for years and eventually become a cult classic. On the other side, some movies succeed greatly because they were released at the proper time, even though they were probably not the best pictures, Parineeti said.
