Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra‘s father Ashok Chopra breathed his last on Monday (12:30 pm) at the Kokilaben Ambani hospital in Mumbai. He was first diagnosed with cancer in 2005 and finally passed away after fighting for so long. Priyanka, her mother and younger brother were with the elderly gentleman at the time of death.
It was only on Sunday, Priyanka cancelled all of her assignments and has spent 6-long hours praying for the recovery of her father by organizing a Mahamrityunjay puja at her residence.
Earlier this year, Ashok Chopra even graced a ward ceremony held in Vancouver where Priyanka won the best actress award for her stellar performance as a mentally challenged girl in acclaimed flick ‘Barfi!’.
Priyanka Chopra is so close to her father and even had a tattoo ‘Daddy’s Lil Girl’. Heartfelt condolences to the actress and her family.
RIP Ashok Chopra!
