Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas romance and now imminent wedding made news across the world. While Nick spoke in length about what attracted him to Priyanka and what forms the bedrock of their bond, she has been more cautious while speaking about their relationship. However, at the launch of dating app Bumble India in New York on Sunday Priyanka spoke on Nick, what keeps them going and who made the first move.
Talking to Entertainment Tonight, the former Miss World revealed that it was Nick who approached her. “I actually didn’t make the first move -- he did. He texted me. The first time was a text and just saying, ‘I think we should connect,’ and whatever and that’s how we started talking,” Priyanka said.
She also spoke about her wedding and how the new phase of her life has her excited, “This is such a wonderful new step in my life and I’m still getting used to it because it’s obviously been a whirlwind and I haven’t seen myself happier. Just being in the whole situation of finding somebody who can be a partner to you in so many more ways than one is amazing, so yes I’m very excited.”
“Truly this is what worked for me, he has to be someone who respects you. By that, I don’t mean makes coffee for you, not that. But someone who respects the hard work you put into your life,” the 36-year-old actor said at the Bumble India launch in New York City on Tuesday.
Priyanka went on to explain what she prizes above all else in a relationship: “Who respects that if his work is important, so is yours. Or if he makes choices that are important to him, so is your opinion. That’s respect, and that’s incredible to have.”
Along with respect, Priyanka went on to say that trust is of utmost importance. “Then everything is so easy because you give each other credit for your intelligence, you give each other the benefit of the doubt because you trust each other. There’s so much that comes out of that. I think don’t settle for less than that.”
Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas wedding is expected to take place on December 2 in Rajasthan’s Jodhpur and the Quantico star recently celebrated her bridal shower in the presence of friends and family in New York. “This was not a conventional shower, it was a nightclub in Tiffany,” Priyanka opened up to PEOPLE, “There was so much dancing — like five hours of dancing. It was amazing!”
