"Thank u #starGuildAwards for the acknowledgements tonight... #MaryKom is for my dad.. Thank you for watching over me," tweeted Priyanka, who walked away with the best actress award for the film.

Priyanka always found a great support system in her father, who passed away after a battle with cancer in 2013. A doctor by profession, he had retired from the Indian Army in 1997 as lieutenant-colonel.

The  'Fashion' actress also has a tattoo of 'Daddy's Li'l Girl' on one of her forearms.    Directed by Omung Kumar, the film was released on September 5.

Priyanka, who has earlier called 'Mary Kom' her toughest film ever, credited the film's team for the success of the film. "Congratulations to team #MaryKom for winning 5 tonight. @OmungKumar @SaiwynQ ,Sanjay Sir and everyone who made this possible," she wrote.

At present, the actress is busy shooting for her first period drama 'Bajirao Mastani', which also stars Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh.
