Early Life and Career

As a kid, Chopra had to travel around quite a bit as the daughter of doctors in the Indian army. Starting over in new places wasn’t always easy for an Indian girl moving to America.

Nick got down on one knee and asked Priyanka to marry him. The actress took about 45 seconds to say yes! Besides, how could you say no to a Tiffany ring for $200,000? 

The public had their first view of the pair as a husband and wife during their wedding weekend. They have been spotted leaving Jodhpur to attend another wedding reception in Delhi. The duo indeed unveiled their newlywed glow!
