Ashok Chopra died in 2013 after battling with cancer for four years. His death left a huge vacuum in Priyanka’s life. During the time of her father’s death, Priyanka was at the peak of her professional career. A doctor in Indian Army, Priyanka’s father retired from the Indian Army in 1997 as Lieutenant Colonel. Earlier this year when Priyanka’s Marathi film Ventilator won three awards at 64th National Film Awards, Priyanka told IANS that she wanted to make this film for her father.
