Priyanka Chopra’s father, Dr Ashok Chopra, passes away
Actress Priyanka Chopra’s father Dr. Ashok Chopra breathed his last today at the Kokilaben Ambani hospital in Mumbai. He was suffering from cancer since 2008. The Chopra clan including the actress, her mother and younger brother were with him at the time of death.
Just yesterday, we reported how Priyanka has put aside work assignments and has been spending all her time praying for her father’s recovery. On Friday, Priyanka had organised a Mahamrityunjay puja at her home, for her daddy’s recovery.
Back in 2005 when Priyanka was shooting for Rohan Sippy’s Bluffmaster, her father fell ill. Even then, Priyanka had not shared her agony with anyone on the sets. Her frail father had accompanied Priyanka for an award function held in Vancouver earlier this year. She had won the best actress trophy for her stupendous performance as an autistic girl in Barfi!.
