Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra and American singer Nick Jonas yesterday solemnised their relationship with a traditional Indian ‘roka’ ceremony in Mumbai.
Soon after Jonas, 25, posted a photo with Chopra on Instagram, captioning it: “Future Mrs Jonas. My heart. My love.”
Chopra, 36, posted the same photo on her Instagram page, writing: “Taken with all my heart and soul.”
She was seen wearing a diamond ring that Jonas reportedly bought after shutting down a Tiffany store in New York last month.
Chopra, who won the Miss World pageant in 2000, is one of Bollywood’s most identifiable stars and one of the few to have achieved success in the West.
She established her space in Bollywood with a slew of impressive films like Fashion, Mary Kom, Barfi!, Bajirao Mastani and 7 Khoon Maaf. She stars in the ABC thriller series Quantico and has released songs with US chart-toppers including Pitbull and The Chainsmokers.
Jonas first found success as a child as the frontman of The Jonas Brothers with his two siblings.
The brothers hailed from a deeply devout Christian family and presented a wholesome image, including wearing purity rings to promote chastity.
In more recent years Jonas remoulded himself with with a more mature and edgy musical image, as well as turning to acting. He has been romantically linked to a number of celebrities including Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez.
In photos shared on social media yesterday, Chopra and Jonas were seen performing a prayer ritual in traditional Indian attires.
While Chopra opted for a flowing yellow ensemble, Jonas wore white kurta-pyjama. Jonas’ parents also wore Indian outfits.
The ceremony was attended by Chopra’s cousin Parineeti Chopra, as well as celebrities including Arpita Khan Sharma, Mushtaq Sheikh and Srishti Behl Arya.
Well-known names from Bollywood and Hollywood also sent in good wishes.
