Madhu Chopra on Priyanka and Nick Jonas's Roka

After a traditional and elaborate Roka ceremony, followed by an engagement bash, Priyanka and Nick have painted the town red with their love.


The Desi Girl's mother revealed details about her daughter's relationship with Nick and the Jonas family in an interview with DNA. She also opened up about her reaction when daughter Priyanka said that she wanted to get engaged to the 25-year-old singer. "I told her that I want to meet Nick's family," she said.
Madhu Chopra said, "Priyanka has always been ambitious about her career, and I was just supporting her, and wishing the best for her, as a mother. I used to pester her, but in the last two-three years, I had stopped. I had given up. Yeh sab cheez ka ek time hota hai, it's all destiny."

Talking about the Jonas family taking party in Indian traditions, she said, "Nick enjoyed the prayers during the puja. It was a new thing for him, and he took it seriously. He followed what our panditji said, and chanted the Sanskrit mantras accurately. Both he and his parents did it beautifully. They are nice people."
Further speaking about the kind of wedding she wants for her daughter, she said, "My daughter knew I wanted a Roka before the marriage, so she never said 'no'. I haven't forced any of my thoughts on her, but I definitely want a traditional Indian wedding. That's my only wish. I started the Roka with a puja, which is important to me. I'm a modern mother but at heart, I'm quite conservative."

 

Happy!!

She even expressed her views about Nick, her son-in-law. "Nick is calm and mature. He's a wonderful person, and everyone in the family just loves him. He's so polite and respectful towards elders. What more can a mother want!" Madhu Chopra says that she trusts her daughter's choice, "I always trust Priyanka's judgment; she's not impulsive. She gave it a lot of thought, and when she decided on something, I was sure it would be good," she quipped.

When asked about the wedding date, she remarked, “They haven't decided on a wedding date yet. It's too soon. These are just baseless rumors. Both of them have work commitments right now which they need to finish. They will take some time to decide where they want it, and when they want it."
