Priyanka Chopra Shares Major Throwback on Instagram for Her Cousin's Birthday

Priyanka Chopra usually grabs our attention on social media with her romantic (and sometimes steamy) photos with her husband, Nick Jonas. However, the 39-year-old actress just caught our eye for a whole different reason when she casually shared a major throwback on her Instagram Story.

Chopra's cousin, Parineeti, is celebrating her 32nd birthday today, and the Quantico star decided to mark the special occasion by sharing a couple of photos of her and her cousin.

The collage included a sticker that said “Love you,” as well as a note which read, “Happy birthday Tisha. Sending so much love @parineetichopra.”

In addition to sharing the nickname she uses for her cousin, Chopra included a photo of them both posing back-to-back and holding hands. Above the image, Chopra also shared a vintage throwback, where Parineeti looks super young and Priyanka looks as if she couldn't be any older than a teenager.

In the photo, an adolescent Chopra sports a black top with what appears to be a white scarf draped around her neck. And although we're used to the actress's long, wavy locks, they appear a little shorter and straighter in this image.

Besides being family, Priyanka and Parineeti Chopra are both successful actresses. While Chopra has won a National Film Award and five Filmfare Awards throughout her career, her cousin Parineeti has been the recipient of a National Film Award (Special Mention) and a Filmfare Award, as well.

Although Chopra has shared throwbacks on her Instagram in the past, we haven't seen anything quite like this. Keep 'em coming, Priyanka.
