Priyanka had in June also shared a heartfelt video on Dr Chopra’s death anniversary. The video started with the text, “My dad was my best friend, my idol and my protector. He was the man of my life,” and had old clips with Priyanka’s voiceover. She said, “I was very close to my father, he was my superhero, my idol. I wanted to grow up and be him. He was a musician, he used to perform on stage, he was a surgeon, he was an artist, he was the life of a party, gregarious laughter, extremely confident man.”
Priyanka also has a tattoo on her right wrist in her father’s handwriting. It reads, “Daddy’s lil girl”.
On the work front, Priyanka Chopra is currently shooting for Shonali Bose’s film The Sky Is Pink alongside Farhan Akhtar and Zaira Wasim.
