Actress Priyanka Chopra has recorded a promotional track in Marathi movie Ventilator, which is her debut Marathi production venture. She has dedicated the song titled Baba to her late father Ashok Chopra.

Priyanka Chopra recently recorded the song, Baba. The video featuring her singing this promotional track was released on the official YouTube channel of Zee Studios and it has got very good response from the audience. "From the minute, I heard the song 'Baba', I loved it. It's so powerful and moving...capturing the relationship between a father and his son," Priyanka said in a statement.

"When the music directors suggested that I sing a female version of this, I was apprehensive and torn between my love for the song and nervousness of singing it in Marathi. But I'm so glad I did finally sing it because it was a fun, enriching, terrifying, and amazing experience for me and I can't wait to do it all over again. I hope I've been able to do justice to this beautiful song," Priyanka Chopra added.

The song will feature Priyanka Chopra, who is busy shooting for the second season of Quantico. Rajesh Mapuskar, who is directing Ventilator, flew with other cast and crew to New York to shoot the video, which has been conceptualised and directed by Maheep Dhillon with an American crew.

"When music composers Rohan Rohan came to me with a very simple, warm composition 'Baba' I never thought it would travel across continents to get completed. It's recorded in the ultimate city of the US, New York. Thank you Priyanka for your initiative to make the Baba song sound so wonderful," Rajesh Mapuskar said.

The actress took to her Twitter handle this morning to share the YouTube link for the song with her followers. Besides posting the link, Priyanka Chopra wrote: "#Baba..My first Marathi song.. Forgive me if there are any mistakes...this one is all heart."

Priyanka Chopra is producing Ventilator under her production house Purple Pebble Pictures. The film revolves around an ailing senior member of a family, who is being put on the ventilator just days before the Ganapati festival, leading to varied degrees of speculation and panic among the large clan he belongs to.
