Madhu Chopra on seeing Parineeti as bride
Even though Priyanka and her family were absent from the wedding festivities, her mom Madhu Chopra had landed in Udaipur on Friday and was a part of all the wedding festivities.
In the same airport video, when asked about the wedding and the gift she gave Parineeti, Madhu said, "Bahut badhiya... Unhone sab mana kar diya, no lena-dena, bas ashirwad (The wedding was great. They asked us to not gift anything, there was no exchange of gifts, just gave them my blessings)."

Parineeti and Raghav's wedding
Actor Parineeti Chopra and AAP leader Raghav Chadha had a big, fat Punjabi wedding in Udaipur, Rajasthan on Sunday. A day later, the couple shared the official wedding album on Instagram. While Raghav wore a white sherwani, Parineeti was dressed in a cream and golden wedding lehenga. Priyanka Chopra dropped a bunch of emojis and commented on her post, “My blessings always.”
On Sunday, a photo of Parineeti in a pink saree from their wedding reception had gone viral. The newlywed was seen with sindoor (red vermillion) on her forehead and pink chudas (bangles worn by Hindu brides). She posed with Raghav, who was in a black tuxedo.
The couple's pre-wedding festivities began with an Ardas ceremony in Delhi, which was followed by a Sufi night with only close friends and family members in attendance. In Udaipur, their mehendi and haldi ceremonies were followed by sangeet. Inside pictures and videos from the festivities show Parineeti and Raghav dancing and mingling with guests.
