Talking about their bond, Priyanka told Indulge Express in an interview that the word ‘J-Sisters’ came to being at her bachelorette. “Might have been me. It actually happened at my bachelorette. It started as a joke that if they are Jonas Brothers, we can be Jonas Sisters, since there were all three of us (Danielle, Sophie and Priyanka). It just became a thing,” she said.

Priyanka also talked about how Game of Thrones star Sophie insists on calling herself her jethani. “My jethani-devrani? (Laughs out loud.) Sophie calls herself ‘jethani’ (elder sister-in-law). She’s like, you have to listen to me, I’m the jethani. She loves being jethani,” she said.
