MUMBAI: Indian actress Priyanka Chopra, who reportedly got engaged to American singer Nick Jonas on her birthday last month, is sporting what appears to be a sizeable rock on her ring finger to prove it.
The photo of the sparkler was impossible not to spot in group photos posted on Instagram on Wednesday by Sophie Choudry and in close-ups with Raveena Tandon, in which the “Quantico” star has wrapped her left hand with said rock around Tandon’s shoulder rather purposefully.
Tandon, Chopra’s friend and fellow actress, wrote: “Peecee and I getting our pouts in order!” Could they be practicing for the wedding photos?
Dressed in a saffron yellow pantsuit, Chopra attended a party at designer Manish Malhotra’s residence Tuesday night with other Bollywood stars. An engagement party in Mumbai is rumoured to be in the works for this weekend, where it’s expected the couple will make an announcement.
Jonas, who was one third of the Jonas Brothers before he went solo, has already traveled to Mumbai to meet Chopra’s family. It will be a busy wedding season, as his older brother Joe is also engaged, to Sophie Turner, who plays Sensa Stark on “Game of Thrones.”
Jonas and Chopra were first seen together at the Met Gala in May 2017. Earlier this summer, she travelled to New Jersey to attend his cousin’s wedding in New Jersey. He reportedly shut down Tiffany & Co. in London to buy the ring in July.
It seems they’re well-suited: Both Jonas and Chopra do charity work. He and his brothers started Change for the Children Foundation to raise awareness about diabetes, a condition which he has, while she is a global goodwill ambassador for UNICEF and has the Priyanka Chopra Foundation for Health and Education.
If all of this sounds like another couple whose nuptials were recently in the headlines, that’s no surprise. Chopra is the friend of Meghan Markle, and watched her and Prince Harry tie the knot in Windsor Castle’s St. George’s Chapel in May.
Chopra may have even been inspired by the royal wedding: “Every once in a while there is a moment when time stands still,” she wrote on her Instagram account. “You, my friend, were the epitome of grace, love and beauty… Thank you for being the perfect picture of all things good. Seeing your union and love blessed in front of my eyes made me so happy.”
Global icon Priyanka Chopra recently showed off her massive diamond ring on her engagement finger at ace designer Manish Malhotra’s party. While there is still no official confirmation about Priyanka and her rumoured boyfriend Nick Jonas’ engagement, the ‘Quantico’ actress seemed to have given approval of the same when she recently posed for an Instagram selfie with Bollywood star Raveena Tandon and displayed the huge rock on her ring finger.
However, more details about the cushion-cut diamond ring have now emerged.
E!Online quoted the statement of the president of a diamond company, saying, “Priyanka’s ring is a high-quality cushion cut weighing around 4 carats. It looks to be somewhere around a G color, VS1 clarity which, from Tiffany & Co, would have a value of around $200,000.”
The news of the couple’s engagement came after Bollywood director Ali Abbas Zafar said that Priyanka opted out from his upcoming flick ‘Bharat’ in the ‘Nick’ of time, owing to a very “special reason”.
Earlier, at two instances, Priyanka was seen hiding her ring from the paparazzi. Priyanka and Nick, who reportedly dated for two months, were first spotted together at the 2017 Met Gala.
The speculation about their relationship brewed after the pair met each other’s family. First, Chopra met Jonas’ family at his cousin’s wedding in New Jersey, after which Nick traveled to India to meet Chopra’s mother. (ANI)
