Nick Jonas

Priyanka Chopra, now a US resident, has to give fans back home a periodic something to remember her by, to rekindle, as it were, the cooling embers of her once crackling stardom. We surveyed public opinion on the intermittent obtrusion of Nick Jonas—never one for varied expression—in frames belonging rightfully to Priyanka only, but Diwali is a different matter. A time of solemn affirmation of family ties and love finds the two with lit diyas in hand, half-closed eyes turned towards each other. His loose, sparsely embroidered jacket does try to establish a rapport with her flaming, floral-printed sari. Did Nick resist wearing a kurta? We’ll never know, but the highlight, surely, is Priyanka’s gorgeous kundan earrings.

A nasty virus maybe doing the rounds, making people scuttle back to their holes, but Holi is for flouting norms, our shudh desi bacchanalia. At the colour-splattered Holi bash held by Isha Ambani in Mumbai, you’d have to be the driest of hypochondriacs to miss it. Priyanka flew in with Nick Jonas to give the latter a first taste of gulal. Katrina was at hand to share his surprised joy. And you thought the rival actresses try not to share the same frame!

Ah! Thence we come to the denizens of social media—the scalpel-wielding hordes who so fruitfully spend finite time dissecting other people’s lives. Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas at the Grammys merited an eyeful gulp, followed by a forward click. Instead, citizens chose to hover, unfavourably comparing her raiment to Jennifer Lopez’s green Versace outfit. Priyanka balances the headlong plunge with a staid colour; JLo accentuated it with further diaphanous adventures. Now, on the matter of the watch the boy is wearing....

Along the Miami coast they swam and sailed, jiving to a Wes­tern-Bollywood playlist—the charmed circle of Priyanka-Nick, his brothers Kevin and Joe and Joe’s fiancee, GoT actress Sophie Turner. And if you think their life’s all frolicsome fun, know this: they work hard to ent­ertain you all.

It all seems a bit breathless, doesn’t it? The hushed dalliance, the con­firmed rumour, the anticipated wedding, the grand, fat cere­mony and now a hotly denied pregnancy rum­our.... Well, her ardent boy cha­rming (jacket-T shirt! Wow!) beside her, Priyanka did light up the premiere of her latest Holly­wood film Isn’t It Roman­tic. That asymmetric gown was woven for our LA Lady.

A terrible statistic (he was a boy of eight when she won the Miss World) is being bandied around by the jealous (mostly men) to make this a case of cradle-snatching. But Priyanka and Nick are in love, and just had their engagement in Mumbai, complete with a three-tier gold (24 carat) and floral cake. Well done toy boy!

A girl in love is a simple, glorious sight to behold. Gone is the richly made up, coiffured and gowned glamour of Sunset Boulevard stock. The Priyanka Chopra we see, paired with Nick Jonas in Mumbai and Goa, is stripped clean of big-screen poseur. The girl in our frame is possibly in her late teens, stepping out quietly for her tenth date with her beau. A miracle? Happens all the time.
