Bollywood star Priyanka Chopra and American singer Nick Jonas are engaged, People reported on Friday. The magazine quoted a source as saying that the duo got engaged on PeeCee’s 36th birthday while the two were in London last week.

In — what appears to be — a related turn of events, Priyanka has also opted out of her big comeback Bollywood film Bharat featuring Salman Khan. Ali Abbas Zafar, who is directing the film, took to Twitter earlier today to confirm that Priyanka is no longer part of the film and hinted that it’s because she is getting married to Nick.



“Yes Priyanka Chopra is no more part of @Bharat_TheFilm & and the reason is very very special , she told us in the Nick of time about her decision and we are very happy for her … Team Bharat wishes @priyankachopra loads of love & happiness for life,” he tweeted along with a heart eyes, wink and happy face emojis.

The couple met last year at the Met Gala and since then have been spotted together regularly. Recently Nick also accompanied Priyanka to India to meet her family.
