Priyanka Chopra Reveals the Sweet Reason She Took Nick Jonas’ Last Name

Priyanka Chopra Reveals the Sweet Reason She Took Nick Jonas’ Last Name

The actress appeared on Jimmy Fallon's show last night to promote Isn't It Romantic? where she plays a Yoga Ambassador.

"I always wanted to add his name to mine because I feel like, we're becoming family", she said. She also dictated that it was stressful to hunt the locations and gone through different options like Maldives and Mauritius and finally agreed to tie a knot in India as Nick gave her an adorable suggestion as, "Why don't we do this in India, shouldn't I take my bride from her home?" "He gets added to who I am".

"It's a big deal!" I didn't realise it was that much of a big deal until I did it. Out of all that, PC's favourite was Prick and that's exactly why she is upset now. Chopra admitted that marriage has been "very different" for the couple as they adjust to splitting their time between her NY home and Jonas' LA stomping grounds.

"He really rocked that turban", she laughed. Talking about the same, she further revealed, "No".

The actress noted that she never considered not taking Jonas' name after they became man and wife.

She explained: "It's like a song-and-dance celebration that the families put on for the bride and groom".
