    Actresses Priyanka and Parineeti Chopra's cousin Mannara, who is making her Bollywood debut in Zid, says she is here to act and not to become a showstopper or a glam doll.

    "There is lot of expectation with your first film but I am a kind of a person who doesn't keep any expectations. But, the kind of response we have been receiving for our work is humbling. It feels good when you get such a warm welcome from the industry," said Mannara aka Barbie Handa.


    "As an actress, whatever will be challenging for me I will do it. I am here to act and not to be a showstopper or a glam doll. If you are an actor you have to portray the character given to you," she added.

    Directed by Vivek Agnihotri and produced by Anubhav Sinha, Zid also features Karanvir Sharma among others.

    Asked if it was a conscious effort to go bold for her debut film, Mannara said, "It might be bold for you but I am not bold. My character is bold in the film. Yes, the film has a bold poster and that's one shade of that character."

    Mannara also says her entire family is happy with her work in the film Zid.

    "My entire family is happy with my work. My cousins Priyaka and Parineeti are very happy with my work," she said.
