Priyanka Chopra remembers her ‘Cheerleader’ father on his birth anniversary with a throwback video
Priyanka Chopra lost her father, Ashok Chopra in 2013 after his long battle with cancer. On his 70th birthday anniversary, she remembered her dad with a throwback video of an award function where he received an award on her behalf. In the video, he was saying, “I dedicate this award to those artists who come from small towns. They believe in God and they believe in themselves, and by their mere grit, determination and talent, they make their mark. God bless you, Priyanka.”
Sharing the video, she shared, “My forever cheerleader. You would have been 70 today. Miss you dad. ❤️”
Priyanka was very close to her dad, and she even got inked with ‘Daddy’s lil girl’ on her wrist.
Earlier, while talking about losing her dad, the actress told Hindustan Times in 2016, “His death has been a big blow. I still haven’t dealt with it. I don’t know if I’ve healed, but it doesn’t hurt either. I don’t think I have accepted it. I feel like I’m travelling all over the world, and dad will be home when I return. I think grief becomes your constant companion. You just learn to live with it.”
Priyanka is currently in the USA with her hubby Nick Jonas.
