Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas were declared man and wife after the two tied the knot in a Western wedding ceremony on Saturday at Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur. Soon after they exchanged vows, the sky was lit up with spectacular fireworks in the evening.
Social media was flooded with pictures from the venue, however, not many appreciated the move. The actress was criticised for bursting crackers.
There is a context to it. A while ago, on Diwali, the actress had urged people to not burn crackers and contribute in making the planet pollution free. Referring to the same video, some Twitter users went on to call the actress a hypocrite.
Meanwhile, Priyanka took to Instagram to share stunning pictures from her Sangeet ceremony. Wearing a sequin embellished saree, the actress performed with her mother Madhu Chopra. It seems she tried to replicate her hit ‘Desi Girl’ song during the function. Nick Jonas also shook a leg and trust us, his moves have a very Bollywood touch to them.
Apart from the couple, Nick’s brother Joe Jonas can be seen singing at the occasion while his fiancee Sophie Turner and Parineeti Chopra prepared solo dances for the couple.
Giving out details about the Sangeet ceremony, Priyanka wrote, “It all began as a fierce song & dance competition between the families but ended, as always, as a huge celebration of love.” She also elaborated the families, narrated the stories through their dance performances.
The nuptials come just three months after the pair was engaged in August in a traditional Indian ‘roka’ ceremony. The pre-wedding festivities for the couple, who has been on a celebration spree ever since they kicked-off their respective bachelorettes, began on Friday with a Sangeet ceremony.
Their friends and family turned out for the function held at the Umaid Bhawan palace. Designer Sabyasachi, Salman Khan’s sister Arpita Khan Sharma and her son Ahil, were among the first guests to reach Jodhpur for the wedding.
