Parineeti Chopra may have had a whale of a time at her Mimi didi aka Priyanka Chopra wedding festivities with Nick Jonas, but she is in no hurry to get hitched herself.

In the last year, several of Parineeti contemporaries, including Sonam Kapoor and Deepika Padukone, tied the knot. During the promotions of Anurag Singh historical drama Kesari, Parineeti was asked if she was also planning to get married.

"Toh unse mera kya lena dena yaar? Woh kare jo karna hai unko. (What has that to do with my life? They can do whatever they want). Currently, I have no plans, I dont think so! If I get married ever in life, then it has to be when I am ready for it which is not today. i am not thinking about all that today," the 30-year-old actress told reporters.

When prodded if Parineeti was inspired by Priyanka fairytale wedding, she laughed, "Usne khud 36 pe shaadi ki hai! Usne jaise badi jaldi kar li. Mere paas abhi 6 saal hai atleast." (She got married at 36. As if she tied the knot in a hurry! Now, even I have six years for it.)"

Parineeti revealed that she has no pressure from her family to settle down. "The family of Chopras na, they are a very cool family. I just want to tell you, if you ever meet my family, hypothetically, you will see you will see that they are actually is a family of achievers," she said.

"Like even my eldest cousin is not married. Mimi Didi is actually the first girl and the eldest girl to get married in our family. I have 14 cousins, only two are married. And all of us are their 30s, nobody married. So thats the kind of family we are!" she added.

Marriage should happen when you find the right person, Parineeti feels. "Our own parents tell us, marriage is not the thing to find your person. Do whatever you want. travel with them, live with them. Whatever you want to do, find the correct person. If you want to get married, then get married, just be happy with that guy. Thats the more important thing that our family teaches our kids," she said.

"Dont come under this pressure of getting married. Find the right person, whos not going to cheat on you, whos going to be loyal and whos going to keep you happy. If at 51, you feel you want to marry this person then do it, otherwise, dont get married. Just have the right person because a lot of people are married and they are not happy. So how does marriage decide happiness?" she said, adding that when she finds her Mr Right, she will "be the first person to get married as I love the idea of marriage".

On the work front, Parineeti will be seen next on the big screen in Anurag Singhs Kesari. Based on the battle of Saragarhi, the historical drama tells the story of Havildar Ishwar Singh, who led the Sikh regiment against Afghan tribesmen. It is slated to release on March 21.
