Mumbai: Actress Priyanka Chopra is all praise for her cousin Mannara's debut Bollywood performance in `Zid` and says she has perfectly lived up to the "challenging" role.
"She (Mannara) is extremely free. She is not conscious of herself. For the first time, I have seen her act and I can say it is a very difficult part that she has been given in the film. There are a lot of complications in her role," Priyanka, 32, said here Tuesday at the music success party of `Zid`.
For the film, which has managed to generate much hype and curiosity since its first look was released, Mannara has shot extremely bold scenes.
"Being her first film, her role in the film asked for a lot, but she lived up to it and I think this is her strong point. She has perfectly lived up to her role, according to me. I think, from the first film point of view, she is fantastic," said Priyanka.
Directed by Vivek Agnihotri and produced by Anubhav Sinha, "Zid" also features Karanvir Sharma.
