Priyanka Chopra became candid in conversation with Nick Jonas to promote her recently released memoir Unfinished. During the chat, he teased her that she lost to him in the ring game and other games at their wedding.
In a video shared online by a fan club, Nick asked Priyanka about her favorite memory of the wedding. “Was it when I beat you three or four times in the ring game? Or the other different wedding games I won? he teased.
“Funny! So most North Indian weddings have little games built in for the bride and groom to play, and yes, Nick may have beaten me several times,” she explained, but corrected: “Me and my family and friends. “
Priyanka acknowledged that “Team Groom could have won fair and square, except cricket.” She went on to explain that the games were not a ‘real competition’, but more of an icebreaker between the families of the bride and groom.
‘You know, that part was actually my favorite. Just to watch your family and my family get to know each other and learn about things they had never done before. Especially my Indian family … many of them had never been to a Christian wedding, so to make them understand … Especially that moment when your mother told everyone at rehearsal that this is a sad moment and everyone should be quiet . But the Indians could not be silent. As soon as everyone started walking down the aisle they said ‘yeah’, ”laughed Priyanka. Nick assured her that their cheers “made it all the better.”
‘It was just really funny. Likewise, to see the milni where everyone just picked up, your side of the family, my side of the family…. How many people respected and enjoyed our differences… that was my favorite part, ”she continued.
Priyanka and Nick were married at Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur in December 2018 after a whirlwind romance. They had two wedding ceremonies – Hindu and Christian – to honor each other’s traditions.
