Priyanka Chopra is having a really proud moment as a road in Mumbai has been named after Priyanka's late father, Lt Col Ashok Chopra. While, politician Uddhav Thackeray inaugurated the road, Priyanka was accompanied by her family comprising mother Madhu Chopra, brother and cousin Parineeti Chopra. While Priyanka looked pretty in a blue lace anarkali, Parineeti opted for a de-glam look in a casual wear.
Priyanka Chopra left her foreign shoot half way to attend the special event with her family. She was busy shooting for her next film, Dil Dhadakne Do, but the actress came down to Mumbai to attend the special occasion and be with her family.
"It's a moment of pride for my entire family. My dad was a person who has touched many hearts," said Priyanka during the ceremony. The emotional daughter further added, "Many people asked me if the road has been named after my father because of me but I would want to clarify that it's not true. I am not here because I am Priyanka Chopra but I am here because I am Dr Ashok Chopra's daughter."
Priyanka was very close to her father and we can clearly see that. At most of the events, she was accompanied by her father and to show her love for him, Pee Chee even got inked. The actress got a tattoo on wrist which reads, 'Daddy's Lil Girl..." The tattoo too is done in the handwriting of her father.
Priyanka was really broken after her father's death as she was very close to him. However, the strong actress came back with a bang and focused on her career as well as singing. In one year she has reached a higher pinnacle of success which is unbeatable! So, we decided to share some unseen pictures of Priyanka Chopra with her father, Lt Col Ashok Chopra. Take a look...
