Priyanka Chopra paid tribute to her late father Ashok Chopra on Instagram today on the occasion of his birthday, posting the picture of a birthday cake that had “Happy Birthday Dad” written on it next to a snap of the two of them celebrating her victory at the Miss World beauty pageant in 2000. The post was captioned with the message “We miss you dad. Happy birthday. You will always be my hero.
Always celebrated. @madhuchopra @siddharthchopra89”. Dr. Ashok Chopra died of cancer in 2013 after a five year long battle. This is not the first time Priyanka has publicly displayed emotions for her father – she got inked in 2012 with a tattoo that read ‘Daddy’s li’l girl’.
Priyanka has tasted a lot of success in Hollywood recently, and she just finished shooting for the upcoming movie ‘Isn’t it Romantic’ in New York, her second Hollywood movie after starring in the new Baywatch movie earlier this year. She is also a star on the hit TV show Quantico where she plays a sinister FBI agent, and the show has made her an overnight hit in America. She is back in Mumbai though, and she announced her arrival with a selfie she posted on her Instagram page.
