Priyanka Chopra engaged to young singer Nick Jonas

A day after Mirror reported that Priyanka Chopra had walked out of Ali Abbas Zafar's Salman Khan-starrer Eid 2019 release, Bharat, the filmmaker took to Twitter to confirm the development.

Over the past month, quickie engagements have become a trend among celebrities: Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson got engaged after dating for only weeks, Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin followed suit after rekindling their romance, and now Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra reportedly are planning on walking down the aisle.

'It was a little unprofessional of her to do it so suddenly'. While Katrina Kaif is his first choice, Jacqueline Fernandez is also being considered. I don't know what rights Priyanka and her producers have.

In fact, director Ali Abbas Zafar sent the star a sweet tweet following the claims, hinting at their happy news.

In an interview to an entertainment portal, "Priyanka told us she had to exit due to her engagement, two days ago".

Congratulations are in order for Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra. Sensing Priyanka's iffy attitude, Salman initiated talks with Katrina during their Dabangg Reloaded Tour in the US. "Beat it", she added.

Another source was quoted as saying, "Today Priyanka Chopra's a huge global star and to be part of a film like Bharat, which is looking like an ensemble cast, day by day would not work for her image". She plays the main protagonist and the role is befitting her image.

Jonas popped the question to Chopra last week in London around the time of her 36th birthday, People reports. However, when Nick had flown down to India with PeeCee on June 22, she had been happy to spend time with the couple.
