A road has been named after Priyanka Chopra’s late father

Priyanka Chopra along with mother Madhu Chopra, cousin Parineeti Chopra were present at the inaugural ceremony of Lt Col Dr Ashok Chopra Marg, a road named after PeeCee’s father. Veteran politician Uddhav Thackeray inaugurated the road.

Priyanka said, “It’s a moment of pride for my entire family. My dad was a person who has touched many hearts.” PeeCee was dressed in a beautiful green attire. The desi girl further added, “Many people asked me if the road has been named after my father because of me but I would want to clarify that it’s not true. I am not here because I am Priyanka Chopra, but I am here because I am Dr Ashok Chopra’s daughter.”

Priyanka had requested Mr Thackeray to inaugurate the road. When asked if she would return the favour by helping the veteran politician in campaigning for elections, pat she replied, “Uddhav Ji is like family. If he calls me I will definitely support him in elections.”
