Priyanka Chopra and her rumoured boyfriend Nick Jonas secretly arrived in India late Thursday, and when they were spotted by paparazzi the duo hid their faces to avoid being photographed.
Photographer Viral Bhayani shared pictures from the spotting, and wrote, “Remember I mentioned #NickJonas is coming to Mumbai. Yes he just did along with #priyankachopra as they arrived secretly but they did not do any pictures.”
According to media reports, Nick has come to India to meet Priyanka’s mother, Madhu. Priyanka is expected to host a housewarming party sometime later so that Nick can meet her friends and family.
Neither Nick nor Priyanka has confirmed they are in a relationship, but of late the Bollywood actress has been frequently hanging out with the singer. Recently, she accompanied Nick to a wedding in New Jersey where she met his family. The Quantico actress was photographed walking hand-in-hand with Nick and laughing over conversations with his cousins.
“It was a great wedding, we had a great time,” Nick’s older brother Kevin told E! “One of our best friends and one of the closest people in our life Rachel got married this weekend. So, we were all there to help and celebrate and see everybody. We were in it, my daughter was the flower girl, so it was awesome.”
Talking about Priyanka, Kevin said, “You have to ask Nick about that. We have met her in the past. She is super-awesome. But, that’s Nick’s thing and he can say what he wants to say.”
Priyanka and Nick were first linked together when they arrived at last year’s Met Gala, both dressed in Ralph Lauren designs. The rumours reignited this year after the duo spent the Memorial Day weekend with each other. They were spotted attending the Beauty and the Beast Live concert at the Hollywood Bowl on Friday, May 25.
“The two were seen heading to the concessions stand during intermission before returning to their seats to finish taking in the show,” an eyewitness told Us Weekly. “They snuck out right as the show was ending.”
The couple was also spotted at a a Los Angeles Dodgers game. “Priyanka and Nick were talking really closely and were very smiley and very happy,” an onlooker told Us. “They weren’t trying to be private as they were in a pretty public place, but they were talking to people around them, sitting closely and they both just seemed super happy.”
Last year, television host Jimmy Kimmel asked Priyanka about the possibility of them dating after the pair arrived together at the Met Gala.
Playing coy, Priyanka said: “Yeah, we were on the same table and we already know each other. So he was like ‘Hey, you wanna go together?’ And I was like, ‘Yeah, OK, let’s go together.’ It ended up working out.”
