We know the close-knit bond that Priyanka Chopra shares with her mother Madhu Chopra.
It should come as no surprise that she also touts her mother as her hero and deservedly so. The actress took to her Instagram page to share a candid click with her Girl Hero as a part of a United Nations initiative.
Priyanka’s caption reads as, “As cliched as it may sound, my mother is my #GirlHero. She is a feisty woman that came from a small town, who ran away from home to pursue her dream job… she was a doctor in the armed forces, has over 8 different medical certifications, is a certified pilot and she speaks 9 languages! She also used to ride around in an open top jeep (what a badass!), Whew! She’s also an amazing mother, daughter, sister, wife, business partner… She’s the one who taught me that I could be anything and everything I want to be… And that’s why she’s my #GirlHero… it’s so important to inculcate that sense of confidence in the girls around you and hopefully, that’s what we do this International Day of the Girl Child. #DayoftheGirl @girlupcampaign."
Now we know the secret behind Priyanka’s badassness.
When Pinkvilla asked Madhu a while back on how Priyanka is as a daughter to her, the proud mother stated, "I think more than me being her mom now she has become my mom. She is very concerned about me and she takes care of me. She is always looking out for me, asking me if I have had food or medicines. Small things that I would do to her, now she is doing for me. I like that.”
“I am calling her my rock only because we have immense trust between each other. We have drawn a line on no lying. Neither will I lie to her nor will she lie to me. That is our core strength. The child should also allow the parents to come into their life. We disagree on a lot of things but then we have a conversation and then sort it. Either she convinces me or I convince her. No aggression,” Madhu added.
