LOS AN­GE­LES: Bol­ly­wood star Priyanka Cho­pra thanked her mother Madhu Cho­pra for rais­ing her to be­lieve in her­self and urged peo­ple to do their best to “in­cul­cate sense of con­fi­dence” in girls. The 35-year-old ac­tor took to In­sta­gram where she posted a sweet pic­ture of her with her mom and cap­tioned it with a touch­ing and mo­ti­va­tional mes­sage. “As cliched as it may sound, my mother is my #Gir­lhero. She is a feisty wo­man that came from a small town, who ran away from home to pur­sue her dream job. She was a doc­tor in the armed forces, has dif­fer­ent med­i­cal cer­ti­fi­ca­tions, is a cer­ti­fied pi­lot and she speaks nine languages! “... She’s also an amaz­ing mother, daugh­ter, sis­ter, wife, busi­ness part­ner. She’s the one who taught me that I could be any­thing and ev­ery­thing I want to be. And that’s why she’s my #Gir­lhero. It’s so im­por­tant to in­cul­cate that sense of con­fi­dence in the girls around you...” Priyanka wrote as she cel­e­brated the In­ter­na­tional Day of the Girl Child.

The In­dian star was re­cently in­cluded in Va­ri­ety magazine’s Power of Women hon­orees list. Ac­tors Oc­tavia Spencer, Michelle Pfeif­fer, di­rec­tor Patty Jenk­ins and singer Kelly Clark­son were also part of the list.
