'Did Priyanka Write it?': Nick Jonas' Karwa Chauth Post Triggers Caption Contest and Curiosity

Karwa Chauth is an important festival for Indian brides. Therefore, it was only natural for Priyanka Chopra, the most internationally illustrious Indian bride of 2019 after her wedding to Hollywood's Nick Jonas, marked the event on social media.

But it wasn't Priyanka who posted about Karwa Chauth, the festival dedicated to Indian husbands when their wives embark on a day-long fast to pray for the well being and long-life of their husbands. Rather, it was her husband Nick.

Taking to social media, Nick posted two gorgeous photos of the couple in Indian attire. Priyanka wore a bright red sari while Nick posed in a cream kurta. While the post was quite sweet, what caught netizens' attention was the caption.

"My wife is Indian," Nick wrote. "She is Hindu, and she is incredible in every way," he further added. "She has taught me so much about her culture and religion. I love and admire her so much, and as you can see we have fun together. Happy Karva Chauth to everyone!" nick concluded.

While some thought the caption was endearing, many on Twitter did not take so kindly to it. The post was ridiculed on social media for being overtly simplistic, ie, it reminded people of essays written by elementary school children in class.

Netizens even came up with examples to prove their point.

Not just children, netizens thought of another person (quite an adult) that Nick's caption sounded like.

Many speculated that the simplistically-worded caption had actually been written by Priyanka and not Nick!

While most of it was fun banter and in good spirit, some (obviously) resorted to sexist and ageist taunts.

But best reaction had to be this:

Fans of Nick and Priyanka defended the "childish" caption with savage alacrity.

Whoever wrote the post, Nick and Priyanka's first Karwa Chauth as a married couple would surely be memorable to all.
