Priyanka’s father Ashok Chopra died after battling cancer in 2013. A doctor by profession, he retired from the Indian Army in 1997 as Lieutenant Colonel. The actress and her father were very close, and she even has a tattoo inked on her right wrist that reads, ‘Daddy’s li’l girl’. Earlier this year, when Priyanka’s production venture “Ventilator” won three honours at the 64th National Film Awards, she had told IANS that she wanted to make the film for her father.

Priyanka and her mother now run Purple Pebble Pictures banner, under which they produce content-driven movies, mainly focussed at exploring the regional film market in the country.
