Malayalam actor Parvathy is all set to appear in her first Hindi film Qarib Qarib Singlle. She will be starring with Irrfan Khan. The film, set to release on November 10, is a romance-travel story.

Parvathy has put up the posters of the film on her Facebook page. From the actor's notes, it appears that the film will be about a journey that has a significant impact on the two protagonists. 

Sharing the posters was actor Rima Kallingal, Parvathy's friend, who also wrote a heartwarming message for the actor. 

Rima said that she loved the posters, and hoped that she (Parvathy) continues to inspire people with how she handles her career. “How you seek out brilliant roles and movies,” Rima wrote. “How you never say die. Never settle for any role that does not take you seriously.”

Rima congratulated Parvathy on her Bollywood debut, even though Parvathy disliked the phrase, Rima added. “I know you believe you debut as an artist only once, when you know you want to be one,” Rima wrote.

Indeed, Parvathy, who made her debut in 2006 with Malayalam film Out of Syllabus has been quite choosy about the roles she picks. At a time where women actors continue to be ‘showcased’ rather than given substantial characters to play, Parvathy has only signed up for films where she has meaningful roles. 

Known for her performances in Maryan (2013), Bangalore Days (2014), Ennu Ninte Moideen (2015), Charlie (2015) and most recently, Take Off, which centred around her character, Parvathy has stayed true to a strict code of principles in the years she has been in the film industry.

Parvathy does not believe in doing stage shows and is among the few actors to have completely stayed away from endorsing products and appearing in ads. 

She also happens to be part of the Women in Cinema Collective, members of which are known for their strong stance against misogyny in films and are looking to create a more gender equal atmosphere in the film industry.
