AceShowbiz - Priyanka Chopra has paid a glowing birthday tribute to her mother Madhu.
The actress, who is married to singer Nick Jonas, has taken to Instagram to lavish praise on her mum and to wish her a happy birthday.
Priyanka - who is currently living in London - wrote on Instagram, "Happy birthday mom. Missing our ritual of celebrating your special day together. Love you loads… see you real soon @drmadhuakhourichopra. (sic)"
Priyanka also posted a throwback snap of her mother and a quote from her "Unfinished" memoir on the photo-sharing platform.
The quote reads, "My mother was a combination of intellect and allure. As she would get ready to meet guests, I would study her carefully applying her make-up, creams and perfumes and then getting dressed for the evening. Her wardrobe was all colour - chiffon saris in floral prints, hot pinks, bright oranges, deep reds, golden yellows. Her long, dark hair hung to her waist, and she usually wore it down in a braid or in a bun at the nape of her neck. (sic)"
The "Baywatch" star admitted to being inspired by her mother and longing to be "like her some day."
"I loved watching her put on her make-up - kajal to line her eyes, lipstick, and always a red bindi in the centre of her forehead," she wrote. "I longed to be like her some day: elegant, eloquent, impeccably dressed, impossibly glamorous. She exuded quiet confidence and total competence - which, together with her natural sense of style, made her magnetic. (sic)"
Priyanka - who won the Miss World title in 2000 - also hailed her mother as the "epitome of beauty," adding, "Whether she was dressed in a French chiffon sari for work or in a pair of white bell-bottoms and big sunglasses on vacation, she was the epitome of beauty in my eyes."
