Chopra will wear a custom gown by Ralph Lauren, Vogue revealed. And Jonas ‘will dress like royalty, as is customary—turban, sword—and he’ll ride in on a horse.’
‘Are you comfortable on a horse?’ Chopra asks during the interview as if she had not considered before that he may not be able to ride.

The roka took place in August. ‘It was such an incredible coming-together of two really ancient cultures and religions,’ Chopra said.

The Vogue article was titled When Priyanka Met Nick: A Love Story. And in the interview, she mentioned when she first fell for Nick.
She was on a date in LA with Jonas and he said, ‘I love the way you look at the world. I love the drive you have.’
She added, ‘As a girl, I’ve never had a guy tell me, “I like your ambition.” It’s always been the opposite.’
The former teen heartthrob also talked about when they met at an Oscar party – he made a scene: ‘I put my drink down… get on one knee—this is in front of a bunch of people—and I say, “You’re real. Where have you been all my life?” Like, loud.’
And both she and Jonas detailed how they first started talking. ‘It was Nick who sent the first message,’ Chopra said.
But there is a story behind that. He sent a text to Graham Rogers, Chopra’s costar on Quantico, that read: ‘Priyanka. Is. Wow.’
But he said that is not the way he talks.
Then he sent a direct message to her on Twitter: ‘I’m hearing from a few mutual friends that we should meet,’ the note said.

Chopra laughs, ‘Boy got the number!’
‘We hung out for a couple of hours,’ Chopra says of a date. ‘He patted my back before he left.’
‘There was no kiss. There was nothing,’ Jonas said.
‘There was a back pat,’ Chopra says.
‘She’s still upset about that.’
‘Your mom was in the house!’ Jonas said. ‘I thought it was a respectful first night.’
‘It was too respectful if you ask me.’
The reporter also talked to Nick’s brother Joe who was there with his fiancée Sophie Turner. ‘I think she kind of knocked him off his feet. He was just this little puppy dog,’ Joe said.
‘He’s sitting on the floor. And Sophie and I were just laughing at him. We’re like, Look at this little smitten, drunk kid right now.’
And also in the interview she said Nick has brought out a new side to her: ‘I’ve had that rule my whole life. Never publicly acknowledge a relationship. Ever. … What is happening? I’ve not known myself like this. This guy turned me into such a girl! If I could blush, I’d be tomato red right now.’
The former beauty pageant queen also talked about bringing the dating app Bumble to India: ‘
‘It’s the idea of it that I love for India,’ she noted. ‘It’s empowering girls to take control of their futures. You want a career? Go online; pursue the person you want to meet. Choose the kind of guy you like.’
