Priyanka Chopra’s moment of pride: Mumbai road named after her father Priyanka Chopra
Priyanka Chopra describes the naming of the road after her late father a moment of pride for her family.

On the first death anniversary of her father Ashok Chopra, Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra Tuesday announced that a street has been named as 'Lieutenant Colonel Dr. Ashok Chopra Marg'. Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray was also present at the event.

"I don't have words to describe anything. It's a moment of pride for my family," Priyanka told reporters during the inauguration of the newly named street off her residence.

Her father passed away in the battle with cancer last year, and she was extremely close to him.

The actress, who even has a 'Daddy's Li'l Girl' tattoo, said: "It means a lot to me. My dad was someone who has touched many hearts through his work. Today, seeing this road named after him, people ask that just because he is Priyanka Chopra's father...is this road being named after him?' No, it's not that."

"I'm here today because I'm Ashok Chopra's daughter. This road is being named after him because his community that he worked with...his friends, his family and all of you stood up and asked for it. So thank you very much on behalf of my father today."
