The actress also wholeheartedly expressed her gratitude towards her mother who has been an icon for her since childhood. She thanked her mother for bringing her up without any prejudices.

Appreciating the varied roles her mother played in her entire life from a professional doctor to a daughter, wife, mother to a business partner, Priyanka Chopra maintained that her mother has been her hero all this while. She also spoke about her mother’s story revealing about how she ran away from her home to fulfill her dream and became a doctor in the armed forces and served them for years. The actress also talked about her mother’s qualifications which includes eight medical certifications along with being a certified pilot and also about her linguistic skills since she can speak in nine languages.
