Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra’s father Ashok Chopra, who passed away on June 10, was cremated on Monday evening at Oshiwara crematorium. The last rites of Ashok Chopra took place between 5.30 pm and 6.00 pm
Hrithik Roshan and Shahid Kapoor reached Kokilaben Hospital after hearing of Ashok Chopra’s demise and were with Priyanka and her family when the body was taken to her home.
Ashok Chopra was admitted to hospital 17 days ago as he was enduring cancer treatment for the past few years. He was at the terminal stage of the disease. Priyanka Chopra had cancelled all her shoots and was by his side for the past few days.
In the morning the actress had sent a picture collage of her father on Twitter. Anurag Basu, the director who is a cancer survivor and a close friend of Priyanka, who was present at the crematorium, said, “Having gone through the same illness, I realize how draining cancer can be. More than the apparent physical complexities, it is mentally challenging. I was there last night with Mr. Chopra. He fought a tough battle. But since it was a relapse, it was gradually tough to tackle. Priyanka has stood like a rock by her father. I’m not worried for her. She’s particularly strong as a person …my prayers are with the Chopra family.”
Apart from friends and family, Priyanka had almost the entire industry by her side. While her cousin Parineeti Chopra did not leave the actress alone for a moment, Uday Chopra also remained back till the last rites were done. Hrithik and Rakesh Roshan were among those who had hurried to the hospital upon hearing the news.
Apart from them, also present were Shah Rukh Khan, Ranbir Kapoor, Karan Johar, Deepika Padukone, Madhur Bhandarkar, Ranveer Singh, Punit Malhotra, Ramesh Taurani, Vishal Bhardwaj, Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Bela Sehgal, Manish Malhotra, Abbas Mustan, Ronnie Screwvala, Apoorva Lakhia, Sajid Nadiadwala, among others.
