Mannara Chopra Reacts To Alleged Rivalry With Cousin, Priyanka-Parineeti, 'I Didn't Take Names..'

Mannara Chopra’s journey on Bigg Boss 17 was a rollercoaster ride, and she became the first runner-up in the female category. Since then, she has been busy with her professional life and gaining more popularity every day. The actress carved her own place in the industry and never mentioned her sisters, Priyanka Chopra and Parineeti Chopra, throughout her time in the house. Now, in a recent interaction, Mannara talked about the same and shared the impact of Priyanka’s success on her life.

In an interview with Siddharth Kannan, Mannara Chopra opened up about her decision not to talk about her sisters, Priyanka Chopra and Parineeti Chopra in the Bigg Boss house. Talking about the same, Mannara shared that she felt that if she had taken her family’s name, they would have tagged her as a nepo kid. She also shunned the rumours of her strained relationship with her cousins and said:

“If I would take my family’s name, they would have called me a nepo kid. They would have said that I don’t have a personality. Now that I didn’t take their names, they created another story that I my relationship with my sisters is not good. My relations are very sorted. I am a very loving child and I have learned this from my mother.”

She added that she wanted to be known for her talents and fight her own battles, rather than taking help from her cousins. Mannara also mentioned that people are comfortable with her because she gives that kind of feeling to the people around her. Speaking along the same lines, the actress said that she comes from a filmy background but she wanted to portray her personality on BB. In her words:

“I didn’t take their names because I really wanted people to see me and who I am, and I wanted to fight my own battle. When I walk into meetings and look tests, that is just me standing alone in those parameters. And after Bigg Boss, if people in the industry are talking to me, they are interacting with me because of the comfort which I am giving from my end also. Of course, they know I come from a certain family but it is also because of how I project myself. It is all about you at the end of the day. I avoided the names because I knew it was a personality show and I had to show my personality.”

Mannara Copra reveals how Priyanka's success influenced her

Mannara recalled that she was a teenager when Priyanka Chopra won the title of Miss India, so she always looked up to the latter as an inspiration. Sharing how Priyanka’s journey has influenced her, she said that her cousin has always done what she wanted and ruled the world according to her terms. Mannara added:

“She had a strong impact on all the cousins. She has always projected herself as a strong and independent woman. I looked up to her while growing up because I noticed how she could buy things on her own. She could stay in the best of the places, do whatever she wants, and rule the world according to her terms. That was something I imbibed from her. That was something that got inside me.”

Mannara Chopra reflects on the value of education in her life

However, when Mannara told Priyanka about her desire to pursue acting, the latter gave her a crucial piece of advice. Revealing the same, the BB 17 fame said that her didi told her that education is the base for everything and that she should focus on her studies. Mannara also added that when the other contestants used to fight with her in the BB house, she used to remind them about her qualifications. In her words:

“When I showed interest in acting and creative arts very early in my life, I was probably in Class 11, Priyanka didi told my mother that I needed to finish my education. She said education is the base for everything. Even in the Bigg Boss house, when they talked to me in a particular manner, I used to think, ‘Do you know what my qualification is?’ I have never been in fights.”
