Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’ wedding was nothing short of a fairytale wedding. The two, who started dating a couple of months ago this year, got hitched at the Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur where they had their Christian wedding on December 1 followed by a Hindu wedding the following day. As per reports in DNA, Nick brought the baaraat procession in a regal horse carriage where PeeCee’s mother Madhu Chopra performed an Aarti to welcome the groom.
The Jonas men were dressed in sherwani and Rajasthani saafas while women donned lehengas cholis for the night, according to the report. Priyanka cousin and actress Parineeti Chopra who had promised to ask a huge amount for her joota chupia ceremony reportedly hid Jonas’ shoes as per traditions and made it a point to ask Rs 5 lakh to return the same on behalf of everyone of us from our National Jiju.
The leading daily quoted a source saying, “Both the families accepted and followed each other’s customs wholeheartedly. During the Hindu wedding, Priyanka’s younger sibling, Siddharth, explained every ritual and its significance to Nick’s family. Siddharth and Nick’s brothers — Kevin, Joe and Frankie — also had a fun-filled competition where they picked up the bride and groom to a certain height, right before the varmalas (garlands) were exchanged.”
In fact, the report further elaborates how Nick exclaimed to take 7 more phrase after learning the significance of the same. Nickyanka with their families left for Delhi for their reception on Monday. The reception in Delhi is expected to be attended by many dignitaries including Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
