The day is nearing and few of us can wait to see Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas tie the knot and emerge out of Umaid Bhavan Palace in Jodhpur, India as man and wife. However, while Chopra is going all out for her Hollywood friends many feel she is leaving her Bollywood friends behind.

Chopra, who rose to the top of her career through Bollywood movies such as 'Aitraaz', 'Fashion', 'Barfi', and 'Mary Kom', seems to be subtly throwing shade at her Bollywood friends, considering no Bollywood celebrity has been invited to the wedding celebrations of the couple.

Apart from Parineeti Chopra, who is also a cousin sister to the bride, no other Bollywood celebrity has been even remotely associated with Chopra's wedding celebrations, let alone be party to it. Even the speculative guest lists of Chopra's wedding that have been doing the rounds for some time now have no mention of a star from the Indian film fraternity.



 

However, on the other hand, reports about a slew of Hollywood celebrities being present during the wedding celebrations are galore, with some claiming that even Dwayne Johnson will be making it to Jodhpur for the wedding. This is big news in itself for people living in India, for this will be the actor's first time in the country.

Apart from the Rock, other Hollywood celebrities like Kelly Ripa, Lupita Nyong’o, Kevin Jonas and wife Danielle Jonas are slated to make it to Chopra and Jonas' high profile wedding. Jonas' brother Joe Jonas and his fiance, Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner are already in India and have been a part of the pre-wedding celebrations from the very beginning.

For her bachelorette party as well as her bridal shower, Chopra called all of her Hollywood friends to celebrate with her. The bridal shower was thrown by Chopra's closest pals as well as her bridesmaids, Mubina Rattonsey and Anjula Acharia, and the celebrations also included Chopra's mother Madhu Chopra.



 

As for her bachelorette party, Chopra, who has been honored by the Government of India with the Padma Shri, the fourth highest civilian award in the country, flew all her closest friends to Amsterdam, including her soon-to-be sister-in-law Sophie Turner.

Kevin Jonas' wife Danielle was unable to join the girls on the trip since she was busy moving homes at the time, and expressed her frustration over the comments section of Chopra's Instagram pictures.

However, Chopra is trying to make amends with the Bollywood film fraternity by throwing a reception in Mumbai for her friends and contacts in the Indian movie industry and the festivities are going to be attended by all the who's who of Tinseltown, to say the least.
