Why is Priyanka Chopra making her cousin Mannara wait?

Mannara, who made her Bollywood debut with 'Zid' in 2014, is said to have sent a few scripts to cousin sister Priyanka Chopra for approval, but her wait for response lingers on

Looks like Mannara is biding her time. The actress, who happens to be Priyanka Chopra's cousin, made her debut last year with Anubhav Sinha's 'Zid' and has since got a few offers. However, if sources are to be believed, she has been running the scripts through PeeCee before signing on the dotted line, but the latter is yet to respond.

A source says, "Mannara has been meeting people for work, but she has always looked up to her sister and wishes to consult her before singing her next film. Priyanka, too, had extended a helping hand by promoting 'Zid' online. Recently, Mannara had script reading seasons with certain filmmakers, but she is yet to say yes to them as she is awaiting Priyanka's response."

Piggy Chops has been in the US for almost two months now for her international TV show, 'Quantico'. Another source says, "Priyanka has a busy schedule in the US which may not have allowed her time for family. She is shooting for the show and working on her music album as well. She recently wound up other work assignments."

Mannara remained unavailable for comment.
