Praising the plot, she said "Though food plays an important part in 'Daawat-e-Ishq', it is at the end of the day a love story."

"I'd say 'Daawat-e-Ishq' is a celebration of love and food, love for food, love over food, and what have you," the 25-year-old said about the film, which has been produced by Yash Raj Films and directed by Habib Faisal.

When asked being a foodie did you enjoy doing ‘Daawat-e-Ishq’, Parineeti said “Yes, all three of us Anupam (Kher) Sir, Aditya Roy Kapoor and I, love food. I'd say ‘Daawat-e-Ishq’ is a celebration of love and food, love for food, love over food, and what have you.”

The actress added “We can't have films about food just for the heck of it. There has to be a proper story to tell because it stretches to a two-and-a-half-hour of playing time. Though food plays an important part in ‘Daawat-e-Ishq’, it is at the end of the day a love story.”

When asked did you eat a lot during the film, the bubbly actress replied “Oh, we were constantly eating. Every other day there was a sequence showing us eating and the scene would go on the entire day, so you can imagine. We ended up eating all the time.”

“However it did not affect my metabolism. I think my body was quite happy with all that food,” she added with a laugh.

‘Daawat-e-Ishq’ is her second film with Habib Faisal. Talking about her comfort level with Faisal, Parineeti said “I think we have begun to understand one another to the point where we understand one another implicitly. I am very proud to be working with Habib sir again.”

The film is slated to It release on September 19.
