Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas Are Celebrating Their First Holi Together and Fans Can’t Get Enough
Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas are one of the cutest celebrity couples around. And after their lavish Indian wedding, the newlyweds are now back in India celebrating one of the most exciting holidays of the year. In a new Instagram post, fans are getting to see Priyanka show Nick what it’s like to celebrate Holi in her hometown of Mumbai.
So what is Holi?
According to The Culture Trip, Holi is an ancient Hindu festival that is celebrated by Indians all over the world, regardless of faith or race. Known as the festival of colors, the holiday marks the arrival of spring and signifies the happiness, fertility, love, and laughter to come throughout the year.
Whether it’s at a street party or with family and friends, Holi is a time when people get together to just have fun. Traditionally, when taking part in celebrations, people wear white and splash colorful powder or water on each other to mark their affection. Most celebrations include music, dancing, and bhang — an intoxicating cannabis-based drink.
Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas fully embrace each other’s culture
Priyanka is a certified Bollywood star, and she’s always been immersed in her Indian culture. During her wedding, Priyanka and her family hosted a number of traditional Indian celebrations. Nick and his family participated in all of the events, which just goes to show how much respect he and Priyanka have for each other and their cultures.
And this isn’t the first time the celebrity couple celebrated an Indian holiday together. Last October, Priyanka and Nick celebrated the Hindu festival of Karva Chaut, in which married women celebrate the love and happiness in their marriage.
“My wife is Indian. She is Hindu, and she is incredible in every way,” Nick captioned an Instagram photo of the couple on Karva Chauth. “She has taught me so much about her culture and religion. I love and admire her so much, and as you can see we have fun together.”
Priyanka and Nick are celebrating Holi in Mumbai
For Holi, Priyanka and Nick traveled back to India, where Priyanka’s family and friends still live. And there’s no doubt, for Nick’s first Holi, Mumbai is definitely the place to be.
In a series of Instagram posts, Nick shared pictures from his first Holi in India with Priyanka. In one picture, the couple is wearing clean white clothes. But you can tell this picture was taken right before the celebration, because in another post, they’re wearing the same outfits but are covered in color from head to toe.
In a video of the celebration, you can see tons of people, including Priyanka drenched in color, dancing to Indian music. In one of the photos, Priyanka and Nick are hugging Bollywood star, Katrina Kaif. “My first Holi! (Five days early),” Nick captioned the post. “So much fun celebrating with such incredible people here in my second home in India.”
Fans were thrilled to see the couple celebrating Holi with so much love and laughter. “I love how you embrace her culture. You’re each other’s soulmates and we love you,” one fan wrote on Twitter. “You enjoying her culture and participating in it warms my heart. You guys are GOALS,” another fan tweeted.
Priyanka and Nick may come from two totally different backgrounds, but their love and respect for each other is what their fans love most about them.
