While further explaining she revealed that she belongs to a country where all faiths are celebrated. “Spirituality is such a large part of India that you really cannot ignore it.” According to Chopra, she is fortunate to have a family where she has seen his father singing in a mosque that made her well aware of Islam, her mother worshipping in a temple, and herself studying in a convent school.

“I am a Hindu. I pray and have a temple in my home. I do it as often as I can. But true to me, I am a believer that a higher power does exist and I like to have faith in that,” she said. 

However, Chopra’s statement regarding her father ‘singing’ in a mosque might become a controversial statement as one cannot ‘sing’ in a mosque, the correct word is ‘recite’, a person cannot sing any verses at any condition in a holy mosque.
