Mumbai: National award-winning actress Priyanka Chopra's father, Dr Ashok Chopra, passed away today at a hospital in suburban Andheri here after a prolonged battle with cancer.

The actress' father died at the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani hospital a short while ago, Priyanka's manager told PTI.

Dr Chopra, a physician in the Indian Army, was seriously ill for a long time. He had accompanied Priyanka to Vancouver for the TOIFA Awards earlier this year.

For over a fortnight, the actress had been by her father's side due his illness, keeping aside all her film assignments.
