Priyanka Chopra on chasing career
The Citadel actor revealed that she realised the importance of time after her father fell ill. Priyanka’s father Ashok Chopra died in 2013 after he was diagnosed with cancer. She said, “I don’t remember how many of my mother’s birthdays I have forgotten or I might have missed. How many times I forgot to call her in my 20s? or how many times like I missed Diwali because I am working in Europe and they don’t have Diwali here so it’s fine. I just skipped and missed and didn’t think it was okay till I did.”
When Priyanka’s father fell ill
“Till my dad died and I didn’t have another Diwali to be with him. When he got sick, it was a really big… I think that was a very momentous moment for me where I realised that life is short and we worry about so many trivial things when there are so many big things for us to worry about. I think focusing on that brings you to the ground,” she also added.
Priyanka Chopra shared a close bond with her father. She even has a tattoo dedicated to her dad. It reads, ‘Daddy’s little girl.’
Priyanka Chopra was recently in India for work. She attended the Jio MAMI Film Festival and later briefly joined celebrities for the launch of Jio World Plaza in Mumbai.
