Priyanka has often talked about her love for her father and how his death was the lowest point in her life. As a token of love and respect, PeeCee got her wrist inked with a tattoo that says ‘Daddy’s lil girl’ in her dad’s handwriting.

As soon as she posted that photo, several of her friends and family members poured in their condolences. Hina Khan, who met Priyanka at Cannes Film Festival, wrote, “I still remember the stories you shared with me about your father. May his soul rest in peace.”

Last year, the global icon shared a video on her dad’s fifth death anniversary with a caption, "My dad was my best friend, my idol and my protector. He was the man of my life. I was very close to my father, he was my superhero, my idol. I wanted to grow up and be him. He was a musician, he used to perform on stage, he was a surgeon, he was an artist, he was the life of a party, gregarious laughter, extremely confident man."

Here are some unseen pictures of the father-daughter bonding.
