Actor-producer Dwayne Johnson has joked about being the one responsible for bringing together actress Priyanka Chopra and singer Nick Jonas. Johnson, also known as ‘The Rock’, has quipped he was secretly the matchmaker behind the romance according to reports on etonline.
When asked about the much in news relationship, Johnson first replied with a question: “Are they happy?” After learning that the couple seems to be doing well, Johnson cordially confirmed his role in bringing his former co-stars together. “I did it, yes. If they’re happy. Well then, I take credit. ‘Baywatch’ and ‘Jumanji’,” he added, pointing out to his work with Priyanka in “Baywatch” and with Jonas in last year’s “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle”.
The couple was recently in India where Nick met Priyanka Chopra’s family. During this, the two also spent some time in Goa with their close friends and the actress’s cousin Parineeti Chopra. Soon after this, they left for US and after spending July 4 together, the actress headed back to India to begin work on her much awaited Bollywood projects. The actress will first begin with Salman Khan’s Bharat which also stars Disha Patani, Katrina Kaif, Tabu and Sunil Grover. Soon after this, she will begin work on Shonali Bose’s The Sky is Pink which stars Farhan Akhtar and Zaira Wasim in lead roles.
