Looks like the women in Chopra family have a knack of getting their way in the most unexpected ways. While Priyanka Chopra is winning at what she does, her mother Madhu Chopra ran away from home to become an army doctor, back in the day (as per PC's new Instagram post).
On the occasion of International Day of the Girl Child, 11th October, Priyanka took to SM to post a photo of herself with her mum (and basically to let the world know where all her sass and intelligence comes from).
"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 drive 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." she captions the picture.
Well! THAT EXPLAINS ALL, we think!
