Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas stepped out for a dinner in Mumbai's five-star hotel on Friday night. It is said that the couple had hosted a pre-engagement party for their family.
Priyanka Chopra was spotted wearing a grey plaid patterned dress while Nick Jonas wore a navy long sleeve shirt with light grey pants.
Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas were seen walking hand-in-hand during their outing outside the JW Marriott Mumbai Juhu.
Meanwhile, a source told E! Online that Priyanka Chopra's family insisted on hosting the Jonas family in their country before the wedding.
"Priyanka wants everything to be traditional to respect her family's values, and definitely an Indian wedding. The couple is excited for everyone to meet and celebrate. All of the plans are moving quickly and they do not want to have a long engagement," said the source.
Priyanka Chopra's sister-actress Parineeti Chopra has already flown to Mumbai from Lucknow, where she was shooting for Jabariya Jodi, for her 'Mimi Didi's' big day. A source from the film's production tells mid-day, "Parineeti has been shooting in Lucknow since last week. But, as soon as Priyanka informed her about the engagement, she asked producers Balaji Motion Pictures for a day off so that she could attend the event. They agreed."
On Thursday night, Nick Jonas flew down to India with his parents - mother Denise and father Kevin Jonas Sr. A source close to mid-day revealed about the couple's engagement or as they say 'Roka' ceremony, saying, "It will be a traditional Punjabi ceremony. There will be a puja."
The intimate gathering, we hear, is likely to see guests like Priyanka's The Sky Is Pink teammates, Farhan Akhtar, Siddharth Roy Kapur and Ronnie Screwvala in attendance. Her contemporaries, including Ranveer Singh, Abhishek and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Kangana Ranaut, Alia Bhatt, Anurag Kashyap and Sanjay Leela Bhansali, are also expected.
Reportedly, Nick Jonas popped the question when they were celebrating the 'Baywatch' star's 36th birthday in London. The speculation about their relationship brewed after the pair met each other's family.
First, Priyanka Chopra met Nick Jonas' family at his cousin's wedding in New Jersey, after which Nick travelled to India to meet Chopra's mother.
Nick had met Priyanka's family in June and even spent quality time with her family in Goa. The couple had also posed for the shutterbugs during the the engagement party of Mukesh Ambani's son Akash. But it is for the first time that parents from both the sides are meeting. In pic: Nick Jonas' parents - mother Denise Miller-Jonas and father Paul Kevin Jonas.
