Later haters, Priyanka Chopra is openly declaring her love for Nick Jonas
Instastory PDA, for the world to see
Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas certainly know how to keep the internet on its toes. Just as news broke that the two were likely planning an engagement in July-August — bolstered by the fact that they were photographed wearing matching promise rings — Priyanka decided to serve up some more fodder for the gossip mills.
Take a gander at the star’s Instastories and you’ll spot a photo of her brother Siddharth standing by the Goa shore with Nick Jonas for company. And Priyanka’s caption? “My favourite men” and the all-important heart smiley face that any millenial will tell you is the ultimate declaration of love.
The whole Chopra family soon returned to Mumbai via private charter, where the paparazzi were eagerly awaiting their arrival.
So, how excited are you for this alleged celebrity wedding?
Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas are shattering these tired stereotypes
A celebrity dating another celebrity? Nothing new here. But Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas aren’t your average famous couple. Take a look at all the ways this coupling is shattering tired relationships tropes that have been imposed on women for way too long.
Priyanka is taller than Nick for starters, and she still wears heels. Let's just say that height is a taboo that needs to be struck off our books, stat. Take a look at celebrity couple Sonam Kapoor Ahuja and Anand Ahuja — the Bollywood star is taller than her businessman husband, but that hasn't interfered with their relationship at all.
Society thinks it's perfectly fine, even normal, for there to be huge age differences between partners – just as long as the man is older. It's completely normal for Bollywood actors to be seen courting women two decades younger than them onscreen (not to mention off it). But women who date younger men get saddled with unfortunate nicknames and raised eyebrows. Priyanka is not here for these double standards, and has zero interest in what you think of the 10-year age gap between her and Nick. That's commendable, especially when every move you make is going to be documented and dissected by 7.6 billion people. Take it from the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, who's three years older than her new husband, Prince Harry.
Let's make it clear, Priyanka was never going to sit back and let a man pay for her. What's cooler here is that, by all accounts, she's more famous, makes more money and is more influential than her date. Just looking at their social media, the Quantico actor has over 59 million followers hanging on to her every word and following her fashion choices, while the singer-songwriter's clout stands at a powerful but smaller 25.2 million. Kudos to Nick for not being threatened by a woman who is more successful than him.
She's 100% desi. He's American, born and bred. But does that matter? Not really. In fact, it's an opportunity to learn more about each other's culture and traditions, and soaking in the best of both worlds. Nick even commented on one of Priyanka's Instagram posts with a cheesy but 100% accurate "Mujhse shaadi karogi?" Another great example? American actress Meghan Markle, who's a member of the British Royal Family now. Here's to successful and long-lasting relationships.
