It seems celebrations have not ended for newly wed Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas as 19 days after their grand wedding, the first reception in Mumbai was held for family, friends and the media at a suburban hotel in Juhu on Wednesday evening. Another reception is scheduled for Thursday evening for Bollywood celebrities at a five-star hotel in suburban Bandra.
The newlyweds had previously hosted a reception in New Delhi on December 4, and will host another in Mumbai on Thursday. First pictures and videos from the reception have been shared online.
Wednesday’s party was held at the JW Marriott in Juhu, which was decked up with Nick and Priyanka’s signature ‘NP’ logo. The party is being held for the media and close friends and family – similar to the kind held by Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh – while Thursday’s reception will see Priyanka’s industry friends in attendance. Nick was spotted arriving in Mumbai earlier in the day.
Priyanka wore an off-shoulder Sabyasachi anarkali, while Nick wore a dark suit at the party. Priyanka’s mother, Dr Madhu Chopra, wore a shimmery saree.
The venue was decorated with white lilies, orchids and candles, featuring an entwined N and P in the backdrop. The event was hosted by Priyanka’s mother Madhu Chopra.
“I am going to take your attention for two seconds… It means so much to us that all of you came tonight. This has been an extremely special chapter in my life and I wanted my husband to meet all the special people who have contributed to it. So thank you very much for being here, friends of my parents, my dad who I know is here. Thank you very much for coming and I hope you have a wonderful time tonight,” Priyanka said.
Looking at her hubby, she added, “And this is my husband, Nick Jonas”.
After their wedding, the couple jetted off for a quick vacation in Oman. They will reportedly be spending their honeymoon over New Year’s in Switzerland.
