While the entire world may be looking forward to actor Priyanka Chopra and signer Nick Jonas’ wedding, no one is more excited than her cousin, Parineeti Chopra. While she will be the most important bridesmaid of the group, she also has an added responsibility—to steal Nick’s shoes, The Hindustan Times reports.
Parineeti was asked about the ‘joota churai’ ceremony that is a staple of every north Indian wedding and whether she has any plans in mind for it. “Will Parineeti steal Nick Jonas’ shoes? #paisedojootelo,” a journalist asked Parineeti on Twitter.
“OF COURSEE!!! Already started negotiating my deal with him. And she’s my witness @priyankachopra,” Parineeti wrote in a tweet. Looks like Nick needs to keep a few more pairs handy.ss @priyankachopra
In the ‘joota churai’ ceremony, the bride’s sisters steal the groom’s shoes as he steps into the ‘mandap’ for the wedding ceremony. They later demand money in return for his shoes.
Nick and Priyanka made their engagement official with a traditional Hindu roka ceremony on Saturday at her residence in Mumbai. The two were joined by their friends and family, including Parineeti who shared a special message for her ‘Mimi Didi’ later in the evening.
“Today I witnessed magic and a fairytale … When we were kids, mimi didi and I used to play “ghar ghar”. We would pretend to be shy brides, have imaginary children, and serve tea to our husbands! cheesy, but its because we always believed in the magic of love and hoped we would both find that perfect man for us one day!! Today there was no pretending. I cant think of a more a perfect man for her. Like I said this morning, there are two ways of judging a human being. One – travel with them, and two, eat with them. Nick, I have done both with you. And so I know you’re perfect for her!! Love her, because she loves you like mad! Protect her, because shes strong, but a soft soul inside. I love you both and wish you all the happiness forever!!!!! HAPPY ROKA AND FUTURE WEDDING!! @priyankachopra @nickjonas,” she captioned a photo from the ceremony.
