Madhu Chopra shares inside details from Priyanka’s Roka ceremony
Priyanka Chopra And Nick Jonas got engaged in a traditional roka ceremony and an after party at the former Juhu residence over a weekend. Priyanka Chopra’s mom Madhu Chopra spoke in an interview with DNA that she is glad that her daughter will finally settle down.
“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”, She added.
Madhu Chopra also adds that she was very happy when Priyanka told her she wants to get engaged. She recollects, “I told her that I want to meet Nick’s family.”
Revealing the details about the private roka ceremony Madhu Chopra said that, “Nick enjoyed the prayers during the puja,” Madhu laughs before adding, “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.”
She also mentions that during the puja, she got ’emotional’ while remembering her late husband, Ashok Chopra, who always wanted to see Priyanka tie the knot.
Though mother Madhu Chopra has never imposed any kinds of thoughts on her daughter, she says “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 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,” smiles Madhu.
Talking about the wedding, the star mother said that all reports have no truth to them as the couple has not decided anything yet. She concluded by saying that “They haven’t decided on a wedding date yet. It’s too soon. These are just baseless rumours. 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.”
