After the Roka ceremony, the couple partied the night away with close friends and families' attendance on Saturday night.
The Roka ceremony was attended by Priyanka’s cousin Parineeti Chopra, Siddharth Roy Kapur, Salman Khan’s sister Arpita Khan Sharma, Mushtaq Sheikh and Srishti Behl Arya, Alia Bhatt and Anusha Dandekar. Mukesh Ambani, Nita Ambani and Isha Ambani also came to congratulate the couple. Along with them directors Vishal Bhardwaj, Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Siddharth Anand too were there.
DJ Khushi played the music as the guests enjoyed the night. In some of the videos shared on social media, Priyanka is seen dancing with Nick. One family picture also sees Nick and Priyanka kissing the former’s parents on the cheek.
“What an amazing day of celebration for @nickjonas and @priyankachopra engagement and Indian culture,” Nick’s father Kevin Jonas Sr posted on Instagram.
This celebration followed a ‘puja’ earlier on Saturday and after that Priyanka Chopra announced to the world as, “Taken... With all my heart and soul”, on Instagram with an intimate photograph of Nick.
Nick introduced her as the “Future Mrs. Jonas”, though the couple hasn’t announced their official wedding date yet. Friends and family members are happy for the couple.
Nick’s brother Joe Jonas tweeted: “I couldn’t be happier for my brother. Welcome to the family Priyanka Chopra. We love you.” Kevin Jonas also congratulated the couple via an Instagram Story, but the Jonas patriarch wrote: “So happy for the engagement of our son Nick Jonas and we welcome Priyanka Chopra into our family with love and excitement.”
“Game of Thrones” star Sophie Turner, who got engaged to Joe last year, wrote: “Wow. First I’m blessed with an incredible future brother-in-law, and now such a beautiful, inside and out, future sister-in-law. I’m so excited to welcome you into the family (Priyanka Chopra). I love you both.”
“I can’t think of a more perfect man for her,” Parineeti posted on Instagram, urging Nick to love her “Mimi didi” because “she loves you like mad”.
Parineeti added, “Protect her, because she’s strong, but a soft soul inside. I love you both and wish you all the happiness forever.”
