Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas are the latest ‘it’ couple in Bollywood. In fact, the two are ruling the entertainment news cycle in the international media as well. The couple got engaged in India last week in a traditional Hindu Roka ceremony. Members of both the families were present at the function, post which an intimate bash was thrown for PC’s industry friends.
Now, Priyanka’s mother has got something to share about what exactly happened at the ceremony. In her latest interview with DNA, mommy Chopra has talked about her equation with her soon-to-be-son-in-law, Nick. Mrs Madhu Chopra said that she found the American singer to be a perfect son-in-law who’s soft-spoken and does respect elders.
Here are a few other interesting statements she made:
On when Priyanka told her about Nick:
“I used to pester her, but in the last two-three years, I had stopped. I had given up. Yeh sab cheez ka ek time hota hai [everything has its own right time], it’s all destiny. I told her that I want to meet Nick’s family”.
On Nick enjoying the puja:
“It was a new thing for him and he took it seriously. He followed what our pandit ji [preist] said, and chanted the Sanskrit mantras accurately. Both he and his parents did it beautifully. They are nice people”.
On wanting a traditional wedding for PC:
“My daughter knew I wanted a Roka before the marriage, so she never said ‘no’. I haven’t forced any of my thoughts on her, but I definitely want a traditional Indian wedding. That’s my only wish. I started the Roka with a puja, which is important to me. I’m a modern mother but at heart, I’m quite conservative”.
On Nick Jonas:
“Nick is calm and mature. He’s a wonderful person and everyone in the family just loves him. He’s so polite and respectful towards elders. What more can a mother want!”
On Priyanka – Nick’s wedding plans:
“They haven’t decided on a wedding date yet. It’s too soon. These are just baseless rumours. Both of them have work commitments right now which they need to finish. They will take some time to decide where they want it and when they want it”.
