Congratulations to Priyanka and Jonas
Priyanka Chopra her mom wanted to invite more than 200 people to the wedding. Priyanka of course had to joke about it saying “For an Indian family and an Indian wedding, [it was small] for sure,” Chopra said
Chopra who is 36 and is known for her role in The Quantico went to the Ellen show for an interview. Ellen of course made a few references to the wedding being similar to a royal wedding. Chopra of course had to defend herself by saying “It was just three days. One Indian ceremony and one western Christian ceremony, and one day of pre-rituals — which we have in the Hindu wedding. But it was not, like … usually Indian weddings are a thousand people, at least. We only had 200, which was mostly family because both of us have giant families.”
Her mother didn’t like the fact that the wedding only had 200 people. Chopra said “My mother was so upset with me the whole time. She was like, ‘I need to have another wedding for the other 150,000 people that I know! How can I not invite my jeweler? How can I not invite my hairdresser?’ So it was a whole conversation.”
Chopra went on to say “When you have 100 people in your family … my dad’s side, my mom’s side, they have brothers, sisters, cousins, kids, it’s like a whole thing,”
Ellen half joked and asked why she wasn’t invited to the wedding after she played a big part in Jonas his career. He even lived in her condo for awhile. Chopra had a great rebuttal for it “We were so offended that you didn’t even respond to our invite. It’s so true! I was like, ‘We’re not good enough for Ellen? She wouldn’t come to India? She doesn’t even respond anymore? Nick, you’ve had such a good relationship with her …’ I was very offended for him, honestly. But I’m just the wife. I don’t know anything …”
Chopra and Jones didn’t know much about each other when they first met, so on their first few dates they showed each other their work to get to know each other’s career. Chopra also had some really sweet things to say about her husband “It shocks me how he’s not been corrupted,” she said. “We know when you’re entertainment for such a long time … He’s so family-driven, he’s all about his parents. And he’s just nice and sweet.”
On a side note, Priyanka has started developing a movie based on Wild Wild Country the Netflix Docuseries which follows the Rajneesh cult. She will play the assistant Ma Anand Sheela of the religious guru Bhagwan Rajneesh. And she will be partnering with Director Barry Levinson to make the movie.
I love her energy and look forward to her future endeavours.
