National award-winning actor Priyanka Chopra’s father, the affable Ashok Chopra, is seriously ill. The cancer that struck the doctor a few years back has returned

He is currently admitted at the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital and is critically ill.

Ashok Chopra is in a very critical condition informed a friend of Priyanka. ‘Daddy’s lil girl’, Priyanka, who even has a tattoo of the same words, is very anxious and worried. She has now postponed all rehearsals for Omang Kumar’s Mary Kom biopic. Apparently, the cancer that struck the doc a few years back has returned again – so we hear.

Till last week when her father’s condition deteriorated Priyanka went about her work as normal. Only those close to her know what she’s going through. Priyanka was attending the rehearsals for the Mary Kom biopic while attending to her father in her free time. “Priyanka was religiously attending each and every rehearsal. She doesn’t talk about her father’s illness with anyone. Nothing in her outward behaviour suggests anything irregular in her life. Only her close friends know what she is going through,” said a source from the Mary Kom film crew.

Back in 2005 when Piggy Chops was shooting for Rohan Sippy’s Bluffmaster, her father fell ill. Even then, Priyanka had not shared her agony with anyone on the sets. “It’s the same now. Priyanka hasn’t told anyone at her work place how unwell her father is. When she does all the pugilist practice for her Mary Kom role, it’s almost as though she’s venting all her grief through her fists. But now she has postponed all rehearsals,” the source added.

    So many persons fathers are ill, with the passage of time and old age itself is sickness, then what is so extra ordinary if Priyanka’s father is ill? Allah is big and fair….she knows now like Aryan and Suhana must feel with the fear to lose the father?

      Get a heart, do not drag in these kids. Their father loves them with a passion and can never abandon them no matter what, Priyanka shares a special bond with her father which is usual between fathers and daughter. It’s a slow news day so the media are intruding in her private grieve.

      You’re a disgusting human being. God forbid something like this happens to your family members and someone is busy questioning your right to grieve. Leave her alone. Show some respect and have some humanity.

    Such a sensitive matter for anyone, sad what stars have to put up with.
    Priyanka has shared moments with fans her way and to a certain extent. Media acting selfish. Must be so painful to her to read all this. Wish her and her family strength and her father health.
