Singer and actor Nick Jonas spoke about being the ‘jiju’ of an entire nation at the 18th Hindustan Times Leadership Summit on Friday. Nick participated in the virtual interaction with his wife, actress Priyanka Chopra.
In the interview, Nick expressed his appreciation for the love Indian fans have given him and expressed the desire to visit the country again once it is safe to do so. He said: “In our 12-13 years of work and touring, we had never made it to India. It was significant and special that my first trip was with Priyanka. We have been back many times and each trip has been a great experience. “
Priyanka said they intended to stay longer in India, after celebrating Holi in Mumbai earlier this year, but were forced to alter their plans due to the corornavirus pandemic.
“So many laddoos got into your face, for some reason,” Priyanka said, when Nick spoke about his love of Indian food. “Jiju was given many, many laddoos,” he said, giving him a hug. Speaking about the mantle of ‘national jiju’, Nick said: “I think Priyanka is a sister of the country, in a way, so I am happy to be the husband of the sister.”
Priyanka chimed in: “I became the sister when you married me! I wasn’t before. “She continued,” I think the name was coined during our wedding. On social media, we started seeing ‘national jiju’ trends everywhere, it was so cute. “
The couple recently celebrated their second wedding anniversary and are currently in London, where Priyanka is filming her new movie. They tied the lore at a lavish ceremony at Jodhpur’s Umaid Bhavan Palace in 2018.
