Parineeti Chopra was the most excited family member at cousin Priyanka Chopra's wedding with jiju Nick Jonas last year. Nickyanka tied the knot in Jodhpur in elaborate two-day celebrations on December 1-2.
She was super pumped for the joota chupai ceremony. In fact, there were rumours that she negotiated a deal with Nick before the rasam (ceremony).
In an interview with a media portal, she had revealed, "My preparation is that I am negotiating the deal for the joota chupai ceremony. And since Nick does not know much about it, we plan to fool around with him. Nick, I want 5 million dollars’, and he said okay I will give you 10 dollars. So as you can see, there is a lot of time for the negotiations to come down to one price."
According to Parineeti, the bridesmaids demanded thousands of dollars from Nick in return of his shoes. But Nick had different plans. He signalled his groomsmen to bring in a tray and everyone was taken aback on seeing what was on the tray. There were diamond rings for all the sisters-in-law! One each for Parineeti, Isha Ambani, and Arpita Khan. Gushing over the expensive gift, Parineeti remarked, "He is the best!"
There were numerous speculations about what the bridesmaids had received. Parineeti put all of them to rest by tweeting this:
Recently, Parineeti appeared on a chat show and finally opened up about the joota chupai ceremony.
Parineeti revealed how much she got for hiding Nick’s shoes for the joota chupai. The Ishaqzaade actress said, "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."
She further added, "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."
Earlier, in an interview with a leading daily, Parineeti has spoken about her equation with Nick. The Namaste England actress said, "The most beautiful part of it is that a very nice person is coming into our family and very quickly we all created a bond with him and I am going to really have fun at the wedding and I am going to dance a lot at the wedding and that is for sure. I am so happy they are engaged and they will get married one day and I can’t wait to dance."
