Guess who is shipping Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’s whirlwind romance? It’s none other than Priyanka’s cousin Parineeti Chopra.
In an interview with a leading daily, Parineeti revealed what her first meeting with Nick was like. “The first time I met Nick was at home. I had just returned from London. In fact, I am a huge fan of his, but I couldn’t tell him that. We were all hanging out, passing time, and we found Nick to be a really chilled out person,” she said.
Parineeti was explaining the rituals of a desi wedding, and Nick was “having fun and negotiating” when she told him about the ‘joota chupai’ – where the bride’s sisters steal the groom’s shoes and promise to return them only if he shells out a handsome amount in return.
“He is a sweet, simple and sorted person,” Parineeti gushed, adding that he is the perfect match for her ‘Mimi didi’. “Right from the first meeting I felt like something right was happening. As a couple, they’re cute, and we knew that didi needed someone who would understand and appreciate her without taking her stardom into consideration. Nick is also a star and they are good together,” she said.
Recently, Parineeti had revealed that she was the first one to get a call from Priyanka after Nick popped the question. After the couple got formally engaged in a traditional roka ceremony, Parineeti wrote a heartfelt note.
“Today I witnessed magic and a fairytale… When we were kids, mimi didi and I used to play ‘ghar ghar’. We would pretend to be shy brides, have imaginary children, and serve tea to our husbands! Cheesy, but it’s because we always believed in the magic of love and hoped we would both find that perfect man for us one day!! Today there was no pretending. I cant think of a more a perfect man for her,” she wrote.
