The Gulf Today - - ASIA -

JODH­PUR: Bol­ly­wood ac­tor Priyanka Cho­pra and her Amer­i­can pop-singer beau Nick Jonas have left for their grand wed­ding in De­cem­ber at the Umaid Bhawan Palace in Ra­jasthan. The pair left for Jodh­pur early on Thurs­day.

Dressed in a striped, white kurti and palazzo, paired with a colour­ful leheriya du­patta, the soon to be bride Priyanka was all smiles as she was spot­ted with Nick, who sported a white shirt and faun pants paired with a tan jacket.

The for­mer beauty queen’s mother, Madhu Cho­pra, and ac­tress-cousin Pari­neeti Cho­pra were also seen at the air­port along with Nick’s brother Joe Jonas and Joe’s iancé and “Games of Thrones” star So­phie Turner.

The cou­ple has hired a few he­li­copters to take them straight to the venue from the air­port.

There will be two dif­fer­ent style wed­dings, one Hindu and sec­ond Chris­tian. The cer­e­mony and fes­tiv­i­ties will be a pri­vate af­fair with only the fam­ily and some close friends.

The Mehendi and sangeet cer­e­mony will be held on Thurs­day at the Umaid Bhawan, where Nick will per­form a med­ley of his songs and Priyanka will be per­form­ing a few of her hit dance num­bers.

The pre-wed­ding event will in­clude a haldi cer­e­mony on Fri­day. A cock­tail party has also been or­gan­ised for the two fam­i­lies, rel­a­tives and friends be­fore the big day.

The Royal Palace — Umaid Bhawan - will be shut down for tourists from Thurs­day till Dec.3 for “se­cu­rity rea­sons.”

Their wed­ding cer­e­mony ofi­cially started with a puja cer­e­mony in Mum­bai on Wed­nes­day.

The su­per­star cou­ple waved and smiled at pho­tog­ra­phers as they left the air­port in In­dia’s revered “Blue City” where they will tie the knot in a se­ries of lav­ish cer­e­monies this week­end.

Cho­pra, 36, and Jonas, 26, are due to wed at the city’s op­u­lent Umaid Bhawan Palace ho­tel, in the west­ern desert state of Ra­jasthan, on Satur­day.

They have been joined in In­dia by their fam­i­lies, in­clud­ing Jonas’s brother Joe Jonas and his iancee, Bri­tish ac­tor and “Game of Thrones” star So­phie Turner.

In­dian me­dia is abuzz with de­tails and spec­u­la­tion about the big day, as Bol­ly­wood buffs count down to the wed­ding of the year.

“She’s one of the best ac­tresses in In­dia and she’s beau­ti­ful. All of In­dia is ex­cited for her wed­ding,” said one fan, Prakash Pu­jari, out­side a cinema in Mum­bai, the home of Bol­ly­wood.
