Priyanka Chopra is a brand name that is known for her bold statements, and breaking stereotypical barriers. On Oprah Winfrey show, Priyanka Chopra remembers her late father Dr. Ashok Chopra.

Priyanka Chopra who was recently invited on Oprah Winfrey show, Super Soul, opened up about her life, including her late father, Dr. Ashok Chopra.

She revealed that her father has helped her find peace. The actor’s father passed away in June 2013 after a long battle with cancer. She has remembered him on several occasions, and dedicated a wrist tattoo to him which says ‘daddy’s lil girl’.


Opening about his father, she said, “I miss most about him just how unabashedly proud of me he would be in the littlest things. Even if I am having dinner and my plate is clean, my dad would be excited. If I wore a dress that I liked, my dad would be excited. From the littlest thing to the biggest thing, he would be the loudest in the room. I miss the noise, the excitement he had, the joy and investment he had in my life and just how excited he used to be about everything about me.”

“I do feel that he’s been instrumental in me being where I am today. He’s helped me find a sense of peace, which I never had when he was around. He always saw me as reckless, trying to get to the new place and things, he always wanted me to have a sense of peace. That’s when I feel him around, when I feel peaceful,” she added.
