Priyanka Chopra tied the knot with American singer and songwriter Nick Jonas in December last year. The couple’s wedding was nothing less than an extravagant celebration! They had a beautiful destination wedding in Jodhpur, post which they exchanged wedding vows as per Hindu and Christian rituals at the Umaid Bhawan Palace. Their post-wedding celebrations included two grand receptions - one in Delhi and another in Mumbai. NickYanka's wedding reception was a star-studded affair, with all the who's who of Bollywood in attendance.

Speaking of how it all started, PeeCee said:  "He slid into my DMs and messaged me on Twitter," she said. "A co-actor of mine had worked with him before. He texted me and said we should meet. It took us three years to go on a date, and we were engaged two months later” at one of the upcoming podcast episodes on Spotify hosted by fashion designer Diane Von Furstenberg. 

She also reveals how Nick is so much like her father, as she says: "He feels empowered when he sees me empowered. He'll stand on the side when [lensmen] take [my] pictures [on the red carpet]. He loves (my success). They say if you're close to your dad, you end up marrying someone who is like him. And Nick is. He's thoughtful, conscientious, and kind. I feel like I ended up marrying a version of my dad.”

After casting her magic in Bollywood, Priyanka is all set to make it big in the West as well. Talking about her career in Hollywood, she adds: "I feel like there's a lot that I have to do in the US. I want my work to mean a lot more [than it does]. I don't think America has seen me do the [quantity] of work that I have [done] in India. That's something I'm striving for. I'm producing [projects], doing a movie for Universal with Mindy Kaling, and a reality show with Amazon, which Nick and I are producing” in the 35-minute long podcast.

Meanwhile, Priyanka will be sharing screen space with Rajkummar Rao for a Netflix film titled The White Tiger.  Helmed by Ramin Bahrani, the film is adapted from Aravind Adiga's prize-winning novel of the same name.
