ParineMumbai: Actor Parineeti Chopra will be making her small screen debut with the upcoming talent reality show “Hunarbaaz – Desh Ki Shaan”, on which she will be part of the jury panel along with filmmaker Karan Johar and veteran actor Mithun Chakraborty.
Chopra said she had earlier received several offers to be part of reality shows but “Hunarbaaz” was the perfect opportunity she was waiting for.

Chopra, 33, also shared a picture with Johar and Chakraborty on Instagram, writing that working with the duo on the show will be a learning experience.
