She told to the media “I’m a big fan of my father’s singing. I love singing. Ever since I was a child, I dreamt of getting in a white gown to sing on stage like Whitney Houston.” The actress, who inherited the love for music from her father, was very close to Dr. Chopra and even has a tattoo, “Daddy’s lil girl,” inked on her wrist. For over a fortnight, the actress had been by her father’s side, postponing her film commitments.
