Priyanka Chopra thanked her mother Madhu Chopra for raising her to believe in herself and urged people to do their best to “inculcate sense of confidence” in girls. The 35-year-old actor took to Instagram where she posted a sweet picture of her with her mom and captioned it with a touching and a motivational message.
“As cliched as it may sound, my mother is my #GirlHero. She is a fiesty woman that came from a small town, who ran away from home to pursue her dream job… she was a doctor in the armed forces, has over 8 different medical certifications, is a certified pilot and she speaks 9 languages! She also used to drive around in an open top jeep (what a badass!), Whew!, ” wrote Priyanka.
Continuing, Priyanka added, “She’s also an amazing mother, daughter, sister, wife, business partner… She’s the one who taught me that I could be anything and everything I want to be… And that’s why she’s my #GirlHero…” Giving out the very important message, the Quantico actor said, “it’s so important to inculcate that sense of confidence in the girls around you and hopefully that’s what we do this International Day of the Girl Child.” International Day of the Girl Child was celebrated on October 11.
Meanwhile, Priyanka has wrapped up the shoot of Quantico 3 Italy schedule. She shared the news on her Instagram story. She captioned the photo, “And it’s a wrap on Italia. #Quantico3”. The Indian star was recently included in Variety magazine’s Power of Women honorees list. Actors Octavia Spencer, Michelle Pfeiffer, director Patty Jenkins and singer Kelly Clarkson were also part of the list.
