Priyanka Chopra has always been daddy’s li’l girl, as her tattoo so obviously states. Unfortunately, her father, Lt. Col. Ashok Chopra didn’t live long enough to see some of the most special moments of his beloved daughter’s life.

Her grand wedding ceremony, her global stardom, her Padmashree award and her philanthropic work are just a few of the many. We are sure Chopra senior would have been extremely proud of his daughter’s accomplishments and everything that she achieved on her own will.

Today happens to be the birth anniversary of Priyanka’s father and the actress got emotional reminiscing him. Check out her touching post for him on Instagram:

Happy birthday to PC’s daddy!
