Narendra Modi who was escorted on stage by Priyanka Chopra's mother Madhu Chopra, gifted the newly weds a rose each and shared some moments of laughter. He was dressed in a white kurta-pyjama with a black Nehru jacket. He remained on stage for about 10 minutes, meeting Nick and Priyanka's families with folded hands and exchanging pleasantries
Priyanka Chopra introduced her brother-in-law Joe Jonas and his to-be-wife, "Game Of Thrones" actress Sophie Turner -- dressed in a beige lehenga -- to Narendra Modi, saying: "Inki bhi shaadi hone waali hai (They are also going to get married)." The couple of the night Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas posed with panache, but also engaged in banter throughout the party even as guests queued up to meet them one after another
Priyanka Chopra dazzled in an elegant shimmering Falguni and Shane Peacock ensemble with a multi-layered diamond necklace and earrings, with her hair neatly tied in a bun complete with white roses. She flaunted the "choora" -- traditional red bangles worn by a Punjabi bride -- and sported vermillion. Nick was dressed in a velvet dinner jacket and completed the look with a bow tie
The venue, the Durbar Hall at the Taj Palace Hotel, was done up elegantly with exotic white and soft pink flowers. The "NP" icon, which has remained a staple throughout Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas' wedding, stood out on the elaborate stage. Candles flickered away at different spots of the venue which was by the sound of live music and a free flow of cocktails and a wide variety of food. There was also an element of quirk with a vintage car which read "Just Married"
Making the night special for newlywed Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas, Prime Minister Narendra Modi marked his presence at their wedding reception in Delhi on December 4, 2018. One of the high profile guests, Prime Minister Modi congratulated the couple and gifted a rose as a token of wishes to the couple. This calls for a Déjà vu alert!
