Priyanka Chopra says she felt her father would constantly ask about her wedding: ‘Main suit kab silwau’
Priyanka Chopra says she felt healed after shooting for the film The Sky Is Pink as she was missing her late father Dr Ashok Chopra while prepping for her wedding with American singer Nick Jonas. The actor plays Aditi Chaudhary, who loses her daughter Aisha (Zaira Wasim) in the film and wrapped up the shooting days before her wedding.
In an interview with Zoom, Priyanka said, “I was getting married during this movie and I missed my dad so much at that time. I missed his presence so much knowing that my mom would be doing it all alone, when it was all that my dad wanted and would keep saying ‘Main suit kab silwaau, main suit kab silwaau’. It was very prevalent in my brain at that time and this definitely help me heal.”
Calling it a cathartic change in her life, Priyanka said, “I don’t think I knew how to deal with all the emotions I was feeling. Under the tutelage of Shonali (Bose), I was playing Aditi and understanding that death is the most natural thing that we know will happen to each one of us. Instead of mourning the person you have lost, you celebrate the life that was lived.”
She added, “After dad passed, me, my brother and my mother decided consciously to do it, but I still had a lot of negative feelings. I felt abandoned, I was angry and there were lot of feelings that I had and didn’t know what to do with them.”
