Mumbai: Bollywood star Priyanka Chopra has cancelled her rehearsals  for the boxer Mary Kom biopic, to be with her father Dr Ashok Chopra, who is presently in Mumbai's Kokilaben Hospital fighting cancer.



Dr Chopra is reported to be in "very critical condition". He was diagnosed with cancer in 2005,  when Priyanka was shooting for Rohan Sippy's movie Bluffmaster.

Dr Chopra had been undergoing treatment since then after which his condition had improved. The cancer has now been detected again.

A few days ago, Priyanka had tweeted a picture of her with her father and wrote, "My Dadd Strongest..."

The picture showed Priyanka holding her father's hand in a supportive gesture inside Kokilaben Hospital.

Priyanka has avoided talking about her father's illness to the media and is keeping mum.

At the sets, during boxing practice for her Mary Kom role, it appeared as if she was venting all her grief through her fists, said a source.

The biopic on India's renowned Olympic female boxer Mary Kom is being made by Omung Kumar. Only her close friends know what she is going through.
