Next 48 hrs critical for Priyanka Chopra’s father
Priyanka Chopra’s father Dr Ashok Chopra is seriously unwell. He is admitted to Kokilaben hospital and doctors said that the next 48 hours has been critical for Dr Chopra. Few years back, Mr Chopra has been diagnosed with cancer. The daddy’s l’il girl is totally upset and keep railing the hospital. Till last week, the actress was busy with her work and did not let anyone know what she is going through.
Her mother Madhu Chopra and brother is also by his father’s side. On Friday, Priyanka Chopra performed six hours long Mahamrityunjay puja at her home, for her daddy's recovery. Priyanka Chopra is spending nights in hospital looking after her ailing father. According to a friend , Priyanka's father is "in a very very critical condition."
She has now postponed all rehearsals for Omang Kumar's Mary Kom biopic.
Says a source from the Mary Kom crew, "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."
Back in 2005 when she was shooting for Rohan Sippy's 'Bluffmaster' her father was first diagnosed with cancer. Priyanka had not shared her anguish 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," says the source from the Mary Kom team.
Our prayers are all with Priyanka’s father.
