Mumbai: Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra's father, Dr Ashok Chopra, passed away today after a prolonged battle with cancer.



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



Priyanka Chopra also shared a picture of hers with her father on Instagram.



Dr Chopra, 62, a physician in the Indian Army, was ill for a longtime.



He had accompanied Priyanka to Vancouver for the TOIFA Awards earlier this year despite his ill health. Priyanka, who won the best actress award there for her role in Barfi!, dedicated the trophy to her father.



The actress, who inherited the love for music from her father, was very close to Dr Chopra and even has a tattoo 'Daddy's lil girl' inked on her wrist.



For over a fortnight, the actress had been by her father's side, postponing her film commitments.



Asha Bhosle, Bipasha Basu, Prabhudeva, Kunal Kohli and other members of the film fraternity took to micro-blogging site Twitter to express their condolences to the 30-year-old actress.
