Priyanka Chopra Jonas and her singer-actor husband Nick Jonas celebrated Diwali with zeal in their Los Angeles home. The actor shared a carousel of images from their house, where she and Nick were performing Diwali puja. Clad in a yellow saree, Priyanka looked stunning, while Nick wore an embroidered white kurta as they conducted Laxmi Puja.
“या देवी सर्वभूतेषु लक्ष्मी रूपेण संस्थिता। नमस्तस्यै नमस्तस्यै नमस्तस्यै नमो नमः With the blessings of Goddess Mahalakshmi we invite Her grace and abundance into our home. Happy Diwali ,” Priyanka wrote as she recited the prayer. The two were spotted doing aarti and lighting diyas and puja lamps together.
Priyanka had previously expressed how hers and Nick's faiths were aligned with each other. “Spiritually, Nick and I align when it comes to our feelings and our relationship with our faith. Of course, we have been raised with different faiths. I am a believer that eventually, religion is a map to get to the same destination, which is god. So, whatever your faith has been when you were raised, we are all going in the same direction to a higher power. We both align on that,” she had said.
“I do a lot of puja in the house, which are prayer ceremonies. Nick usually asks me to do them whenever we are starting something big because that is how I have always started something auspicious in my life, with a prayer of thanks. I have had that upbringing and he has had that upbringing and we have sort of created that within our family as well,” Priyanka added.
Priyanka also attended a party hosted by Mindy Kaling the day before Diwali. This pre-Diwali celebration also had Lilly Singh attending it. “I lived in Los Angeles for 15 years and I feel that this is the first year that there has been enough of us that we could do something like this,” Mindy said.
Lilly Singh further shared a video with Priyanka. "We do," Priyanka admitted when Lilly asked if they looked like sisters. Lilly gushed, “Look at how beautiful you are. She is so beautiful, I am so proud of her. I am also a little drunk but I am so proud of her. You can follow sober. I am so proud of her.”
“Happy Diwali eve… love, light and happiness to everyone. Kicking off the festivities with much gratitude and surrounded by love,” Priyanka wrote while sharing photos from the celebrations.
After wrapping up filming for her Amazon show Citadel, Priyanka recently returned to Los Angeles. The Russo Brothers executive produce the global series, which also stars Richard Madden. She'll also appear in The Matrix: Resurrections, Text For You, and a Mindy Kaling series
