Priyanka Chopra Jonas’ beautiful post on being inspired by her adventurous father captures the feeling of every daddy’s girl.
As a society, we seldom celebrate those inspiring fathers who not only raised their daughters with love and care but also left no stone unturned in making them strong and powerful. One such father is Priyanka Chopra’s dad, Dr. Ashok Chopra, who was a physician in the Indian Army.
Recently, Priyanka Chopra Jonas took to social media to share a snippet from her memoir ‘Unfinished’. And, this snippet was how she was inspired by her late father Ashok Chopra to seek adventure in life.
While sharing a picture childhood photo where she is wearing her father’s army uniform, she wrote,
“This is a photo from the album in my upcoming book. I used to love following my dad around the house dressed in his Army uniform. I wanted to grow up and be exactly like him. He was my idol.”
She continued recollecting her father’s lasting impact on her, and the way she took after him.
“My dad encouraged my sense of adventure. Even as a little girl…I was always out exploring, looking for adventure, trying to uncover something new. My urge was to do something that hadn’t been done before, to discover something that no one had found yet. I always wanted to be first. That urge drives me every day, in every single thing I do.”
