NEW YORK: Indian film superstar Priyanka Chopra is engaged to young American singer Nick Jonas after a whirlwind two months of dating, a report said Friday. People magazine, citing unnamed sources close to the pair, said Jonas, 25, proposed to Chopra in London for her 36th birthday after shutting down a Tiffany store in New York to choose a ring.
Representatives for the two stars did not respond to requests for comment. But director Ali Abbas Zafar appeared to allude to the engagement when he announced that Chopra was leaving the film “Bharat,” a historical drama about modern India.
“The reason is very very special,” he tweeted. “She told us in the Nick of time about her decision and we are very happy for her.”
Chopra, who won the Miss World pageant in 2000, has become one of Bollywood’s most identifiable stars and, more recently, one of the few to achieve success in the West.
She has starred in the thriller series “Quantico” on US network ABC and, in her career as a singer, has released songs with US chart-toppers including Pitbull and The Chainsmokers.
Jonas first found success as a child as the frontman of The Jonas Brothers with his two siblings. Also an actor on theater and in television, Jonas returned to music as a young adult with a new, mature image and has often been seen as a sex symbol. He has been romantically linked to a number of prominent women including Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez.
People magazine said that, while Jonas and Chopra have known each other for some time, they began dating just two months ago and the relationship was serious enough that she introduced him to her mother in India.
‘Quantico’ journey ends
 Meanwhile, Priyanka Chopra has finally ended her journey as Alex Parish- the character from American TV series ‘Quantico’ that brought her fame globally. The 35-year-old actress took to her Twitter handle to share her thoughts about the journey for three-long-seasons and said that story of Alex Parish “will come full circle”.
“As the season ends, I am saying goodbye to Alex Parrish. As you’ll see, her story will come full circle…and that is the best feeling as an actor. Bringing Alex to life has challenged me physically and emotionally, but even more significant it has (I hope) cracked the door open for female talent and women of color to play leading ladies,” she wrote.
“Thank you for opening your homes and hearts to me every week! Thank you to the cast and crew of #Quantico for being such an amazing team to work with, for all the memories that I will cherish…memories of laughter, of learning new things, of making friends for life. It was a pleasure working with each and every one of you, and I look forward to crossing paths again!” Priyanka added.
The American drama thriller series premiered on September 7, 2015 on ABC.  Alex Parish, played by the desi girl, was a bright FBI recruit who joined the agency after graduating from the FBI Academy and became a prime suspect of a terrorist attack on Grand Central Terminal.
Presently, Priyanka is set to star opposite Chris Pratt in ‘Cowboy Ninja Viking’, directed by Michelle MacLaren.  (ANI)
