Priyanka Chopra remembers her father, Dr Ashok Chopra, on his 8th death anniversary. The actress posted a throwback pic on Instagram. The note on the page read, "From my earliest years, my dad and I had an understanding: Whenever he was performing at the army club he would look me in the eye during the first song. I was five he forgot New Year's Eve, so I started to leave in a huff. Dad jumped off the stage and pulled me up onto it with him, coaxing me into a duet—a nursery rhyme—and winning my forgiveness." She captioned the post, "It never gets easier… love you dad."
Taking to the comments section, fans poured their love. One wrote, "Praying for you." Another said, "Read this first from the book and it melted my heart." A third commented, "Your dad is so prpud of you sweetheart and each and every Indian is proud to call you our Desi Girl."
Priyanka's father died in June 2013 after a five-year battle with cancer. Over the past several years, she has remembered him on several occasions. She also has a wrist tattoo dedicated to her father.
Earlier this year, during her interview with the talk show host Oprah Winfrey, Priyanka had said, "I miss most about him just how unabashedly proud of me he would be in the littlest things. Even if I am having dinner and my plate is clean, my dad would be excited. If I wore a dress that I liked, my dad would be excited. From the littlest thing to the biggest thing, he would be the loudest in the room. I miss the noise, the excitement he had, the joy and investment he had in my life and just how excited he used to be about everything about me."
"I do feel that he's been instrumental in me being where I am today. He's helped me find a sense of peace, which I never had when he was around. He always saw me as reckless, trying to get to the new place, and he always wanted me to have a sense of peace. That's when I feel him around when I feel peaceful," she had added.
Meanwhile, Priyanka is currently working on the spy series Citadel that also stars Richard Madden. The actor has finished shooting Text for You with Sam Heughan, Celine Dion, Russell Tovey, and Omid Djalili. Priyanka will also be seen in an Indian wedding comedy with Mindy Kaling, which she will co-produce and feature in. She also has Matrix 4 and a film based on the life of Ma Anand Sheela in the pipeline.
