Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas had eyes only for each other as they stepped out for a dinner date with their families on Friday evening, ahead of a reported engagement party. Nick Jonas reached India with his parents late on Thursday evening. On Saturday morning, a puja is taking place at Priyanka’s residence with both the families present.
On Friday, Priyanka and Nick were seen walking hand in hand as they headed to Mumbai’s JW Marriott for a pre-engagement dinner with the singer’s parents, Kevin Jonas Sr and Denise Jonas. Priyanka also debuted her engagement ring in front of the media for the first time. Nick had popped the question to Priyanka with the sparkler on her birthday in London last month but she has been cautious about wearing it publicly till now.
The 25-year-old singer was dressed in a blue dress shirt and grey pants while the 36-year-old actor wore a patterned white dress. The couple looked much in love.
Nick had earlier came to India to meet Priyanka’s family in June but this is the first time his parents are visiting the country. Talking about Nick’s maiden visit to India, Priyanka had said earlier, “We’re getting to know each other and I think it was a great experience for him. That’s what he said. I think he really enjoyed it. It was really beautiful. He had a great time.”
E! News had earlier reported that the American singer and his family will be coming to India to meet Quantico star’s family and celebrate Priyanka and Nick’s engagement. “It’s a tradition for [the families] to meet before the wedding and Priyanka’s family insisted on hosting the Jonas family in their country. Priyanka and Nick are excited for everyone to meet and to celebrate. All of the plans are moving quickly and Priyanka and Nick do not want to have a long engagement,” the report said.
PeeCee’s fans drool over star studded engagement bash
Priyanka and Nick got engaged in London last month after a whirlwind romance of two months, People.com reported earlier. While both the celebs got to know each other when they walked the ramp for Ralph Lauren at the Met Gala last year, their romance blossomed in May when they were sighted spending time together in LA.
According to reports, the couple will have a traditional engagement ceremony at Priyanka’s residence in Mumbai today, followed by a private celebration. Both Nick and Priyanka have refused to comment on their engagement, with a low-key acceptance coming from Nick recently when he thanked a fan after he congratulated him on his engagement.
At an event in Delhi, Priyanka had shut down questions about her engagement, saying, “My personal life is not for public consumption. 90% of my life is for public consumption but 10% is for me. I am a girl and I have the right to keep that to myself. My family, friendship, my relationships are things I don’t think I need to defend or explain it to anyone. I am not running for the Office, so I don’t think I need to give explanations.”
