Priyanka and Nick’s wedding story at People magazine had it that PeeCee was holding a ‘bouquet of hyacinths and tuberoses designed by Jenya Flowers (NYC)’ while walking down the aisle. Sharing her experience about the same, Priyanka shared, “I could not hold it in. I think I was nervous and scared. But as soon as the curtains opened, and I saw his face it was just like everything settled and I knew I was making the best decision of my life.”
Do you know, there was a time when Priyanka’s mother, Madhu Chopra had given up on her marriage? In an interview with After Hrs, Madhu Chopra shared that she is glad with Priyanka finally finding the man of her dreams. She said, “Priyanka has always been ambitious about her career and I was just supporting her and wishing the best for her, as a mother. I used to pester her, but in the last two-three years, I had stopped. I had given up. Yeh sab cheez ka ek time hota hai, it’s all destiny.”
Like most mothers who have lost their husbands, Madhu ji shared that she got all ‘emotional’ and missed her husband, Ashok Chopra, who had always wanted to see Priyanka getting married. Speaking of what kind of a wedding she wanted (traditional Indian wedding or Christian), mommy Chopra shared, “My daughter knew I wanted a roka before the marriage, so she never said ‘no’. I haven’t forced any of my thoughts on her, but I definitely want a traditional Indian wedding. That’s my only wish. I started the roka with a puja, which is important for me. I’m a modern mother but at heart, I’m quite conservative”. And how wonderfully has PeeCee sufficed to her mother’s wishes!
