According to reports, Dr Chopra breathed his last at the Kokilaben Ambani hospital. Apparently, he was suffering from cancer since 2008 and had undergone several medical surgeries.
As per reports, Priyanka's father wanted to see her married and it was apparently his last wish.
Interestingly, a few years back Priyanka had claimed that she was ready for marriage. “I am ready to get married. I am just waiting for a guy to come and sweep me off my feet. If I get that kind of guy tomorrow, I don`t mind marrying tomorrow,” Priyanka was quoted as saying by a leading website back in 2010.
The entire film fraternity knew how close the actress was to her father. In fact, she had recently got a tattoo done to express her eternal love for her father. It read, 'Daddy's Lil Girl'.
Priyanka, her mother and brother were present when Dr Chopra breathe his last. We express our deepest condolences on the grave loss of the Chopras.
