Actress Priyanka Chopra, who is gearing up for the release of her home production Punjabi film ‘Sarvann’, recently revealed that the flick has Guru Gobind Singh's shabad, crooned by her late father Dr Ashok Chopra. The actress was very close to her father who died of cancer in June 2010.
The 34-year-old star shared the news on Twitter, saying the rendition is special as "it really feels like my father is next to me when I hear it."
"My father Dr Ashok Chopra's rendition of the famous shabad by Guru Gobind Singhji #Sarvann," she wrote.

The "Quantico" actress said her father had recorded the track long back but they were not able to release it that time because his health deteriorated.
"He had recorded the song and we meant to release it but then he fell ill... It really feels like he's next to me when I hear it," she tweeted.
In another post she said, "One of my original reasons for making #Sarvann. Can't wait to share it with you all. Madhu Chopra. #Jan13 #Punjabi #Regional #Indian Miss you dad."
Dr Chopra died of prolonged battle with cancer at the age of 62. He served as a physician in the Indian Army. The actress was very close to him and even has a tattoo 'Daddy's lil girl' inked on her wrist.
