Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas get engaged at a traditional ceremony in India
Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas have made their relationship official with a pre-wedding ceremony, roka and the couple will throw an engagement bash later
It's finally happened. Priyanka Chopra and beau Nick Jonas are going full traditional as the couple concretized their relationship with an Indian pre-wedding ceremony, roka, at Priyanka Chopra's house in Mumbai on Saturday. The couple confirmed their relationship on Instagram with their engagement pictures.
The ceremony, equivalent to an engagement, was full of colors as Priyanka donned a yellow suit, fiancé Nick was seen in a traditional kurta-pajama along with his dad. While Nick Jonas popped the question in London in July and Priyanka said yes, the couple now solemnized their engagement with a private affair.
A priest was reportedly seen entering her building with two bags followed by a man carrying sweet boxes in a bag. Also, a mini tempo arrived with caterers and food items. The 25-year-old 'Jealous' singer Nick arrived in Mumbai on Thursday with his parents, Denise Miller-Jonas and Paul Kevin Jonas, and they were seen carrying a Tiffany & Co bag, the famous jewelry brand from whose London store the American singer bought the engagement ring.
They were received by the 36-year-old 'Quantico' star at the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport in Mumbai. On Friday night, the couple walked hand in hand at the JW Marriott hotel in Juhu for a dinner along with their families. The Indian Express also reported that the Chopras booked 200 rooms in a hotel for the guests, many of whom are arriving from the United States.
Priyanka, who won the Miss World pageant in 2000, is one of Bollywood's most identifiable stars and one of the few to have achieved success in the West.
She stars in the ABC thriller series "Quantico" and has released songs with US chart-toppers including Pitbull and The Chainsmokers.
Nick first found success as a child as the frontman of The Jonas Brothers with his two siblings.
The brothers hailed from a deeply devout Christian family and presented a wholesome image, including wearing purity rings to promote chastity. In more recent years Nick remolded himself with with a more mature and edgy musical image, as well as turning to acting.
Nick has been romantically linked to a number of celebrities including Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez.
Rumours that the duo were engaged kicked off last month when People magazine reported Jonas had proposed to Chopra after a whirlwind two months of dating. The couple are yet to announce a wedding date.
