ActorÂ Priyanka ChopraÂ has revealed that her mother Madhu Chopra was not happy with the idea of having just 200 guests at her wedding withÂ American singer Nick Jonas. The actor,Â in an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, said it was unusual for an Indian wedding to have such a short guest-list and her mother found it hard not to invite the people she knew.
DeGeneres said it seemed the wedding went on forever. â€œIt was just three days! One Indian ceremony and one western Christian ceremony, and one day of pre-rituals â€” which we have in the Hindu wedding. But it was not, like â€¦ usually Indian weddings are a thousand people, at least. We only had 200, which was mostly family because both of us have giant families,â€ Chopra told DeGeneres.
â€œFor an Indian family and an Indian wedding, [it was small] for sure. My mother was so upset with me the whole time. She was like, â€˜I need to have another wedding for the other 150,000 people that I know! How can I not invite my jeweller? How can I not invite my hairdresser?â€™ So it was a whole conversation,â€ the 36-year-old actor joked.
DeGeneres, 61, teased the actor for not inviting her for her December wedding even though she was once Nickâ€™s landlord. Chopra shot back, saying, â€œWe were so offended that you didnâ€™t even respond to our invite. Itâ€™s so true! I was like, â€˜Weâ€™re not good enough for Ellen? She wouldnâ€™t come to India? She doesnâ€™t even respond anymore? Nick, youâ€™ve had such a good relationship with her â€¦â€™ I was very offended for him, honestly. But Iâ€™m just the wife. I donâ€™t know anything â€¦â€
The actor said she and Jonas, 26, did not know much about each otherâ€™s careers when they started dating. â€œWe showed each other our work from when we were younger â€” the embarrassing stuff, like, the horrible stuff. It was great. Thatâ€™s how we got to know each otherâ€™s careers,â€ she said.
Gushing about her husband, Chopra said she is surprised that he is so family-driven. â€œIt shocks me how heâ€™s not been corrupted. We know when youâ€™re in entertainment for such a long time â€¦ Heâ€™s so family-driven, heâ€™s all about his parents. And heâ€™s just nice and sweet,â€ she added.
