Parineeti Chopra Takes Off From Jabariya Jodi Shoot To Attend Priyanka Chopra’s Engagement
Parineeti Chopra will travel from Lucknow, where she’s shooting for Jabariya Jodi, to attend sister Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’ engagement. Mum is the word in Tinsel town as far as Priyanka Chopra’s speculated formal engagement with Nick Jonas today is concerned. But a particular development seems to be the validation we’ve all been seeking about their relationship. mid-day has it that Parineeti Chopra has taken time off from her Jabariya Jodi shooting schedule in Lucknow for her sister’s big day in Mumbai.
A source from the film’s production tells mid-day, “Parineeti has been shooting in Lucknow since last week. But, as soon as Priyanka informed her about the engagement, she asked producers Balaji Motion Pictures for a day off so that she could attend the event. They agreed.” The actor is expected to arrive in the city tomorrow.
The source adds that while Parineeti and other cast members — also including Sidharth Malhotra and Aparshakti Khurana — were shooting together, the writers decided to work on portions not involving her for a few days. “Few people from the unit were aware of her being on leave. It was done discreetly. She didn’t want to miss being there for Priyanka. During a trip to Goa recently, Nick and Pari hit it off well too.”
An acquaintance in the know reveals that a private family dinner has been planned by Priyanka to celebrate the occasion. “It will be a traditional Punjabi ceremony. There will be a puja.” The intimate gathering, we hear, is likely to see guests like Priyanka’s The Sky Is Pink teammates, Farhan Akhtar, Siddharth Roy Kapur and Ronnie Screwvala in attendance. Her contemporaries, including Ranveer Singh, Abhishek and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Kangana Ranaut, Alia Bhatt, Anurag Kashyap and Sanjay Leela Bhansali, are also expected.
