Priyanka's father Ashok Chopra died after battling cancer in 2013. A doctor by profession, he retired from the Indian Army in 1997 as Lieutenant Colonel. In 2012, PeeCee had 'Daddy's Li'l Girl' inked on her arm to show how close she was to her father.

After scoring global domination by acting in international shows and films like Quantico and Baywatch, the 36-year-old actress got engaged to American singer Nick Jonas. She had a 'roka' ceremony with Nick in Mumbai last year. Nick's parents – Denise Jonas and Paul Kevin Jonas were also present there and enjoyed the Indian tradition.

On the work front, Priyanka is all set to make her Bollywood comeback with Shonali Bose's The Sky Is Pink. Talking about The Sky Is Pink, the film also stars actress Zaira Wasim, who has now bid adieu to the film industry. The movie traces the love story of a couple — Aditi and Niren Chaudhary — spanning 25 years, told through the lens of their spunky teenage daughter, Aisha Chaudhary, who was diagnosed with a terminal illness.

This Priyanka Chopra and Farhan Akhtar-starrer is slated to release worldwide on October 2019. The film marks the return of Priyanka Chopra in Bollywood after three years. The Sky Is Pink is produced by RSVP and Roy Kapur Films in association with Ivanhoe Pictures and Purple Pebble Pictures.

She will also be seen in Netflix's action fantasy feature We Can Be Heroes, which will be written, directed and produced by Robert Rodriguez. The project will see alien invaders kidnap Earth's superheroes, as their children will team up to save their parents and the world. Apart from this, Priyanka will also produce and star in an untitled wedding comedy set in India, co-produced by Mindy Kaling and Dan Goor.

Under her Purple Pebble Pictures banner, Priyanka has produced several acclaimed features including Paani, Ventilator, Pahuna: The Little Visitors and Firebrand.
