Mumbai:Actress Parineeti Chopra feels American pop-singer Nick Jonas, her brother-in-law, was well prepared for his Indian wedding ceremony with her sister, actress Priyanka Chopra. Parineeti says she got lots of money “in dollars and rupees” as well as diamond rings in the ‘joota chupai’ ceremony.

During the signature BFFs game round ‘Say It Or Strip It’, Parineeti revealed how much she got for hiding Nick’s shoes for the ‘joota chupai’.
“I got a lot of money, I got dollars and rupees, in lakhs and we also got diamond rings. We also got bags, we got a lot of stuff. He was very generous,” Parineeti said.
“He was actually more prepared than all of us. So I thought I was the smart one and I was going to go and do this ‘rasam’ (ceremony) and take only cash from him. They were more than ready because when the time came, he literally just signalled to someone and all of us cousins looked at the back, and there was this guy with a giant tray full of diamond rings and all of us got diamond rings and the bridesmaids got a lot of gifts. So I am proud to show off that Nick jiju is very generous,” she added.
When host and actress Neha Dhupia asked Parineeti about some ‘bridezilla’ moments from the wedding, she said: “We honestly thought of it before the wedding happened but actually not at all.”
“She (Priyanka Chopra) was just so happy and in fact she was so excited like she was that bride who, when the baraat came, wanted to get ready early so that she can run and see the baraat in a filmy style. She was really happy. So no, bridezilla moment, not at all,” Parineeti further said.
