“I do a lot of pujas in the house"
Priyanka Chopra revealed that her husband Nick Jonas asks her to perform puja before any major event in their lives.
Speaking on the Victoria’s Secret VS Voices podcast, Priyanka said that although she and Nick belong to different faiths, they are spiritually alike.
The actress said: “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.”
Priyanka revealed that her husband Nick Jonas often asks her to perform puja.
She said: “I do a lot of pujas 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.”
In March 2021, Priyanka was seen alongside her husband performing puja at her restaurant in New York.
The couple were also joined by restaurateur Maneesh Goyal and their team.
The puja was held ahead of the official inauguration of the Indian restaurant, Sona.
Priyanka also held a puja ceremony in September 2019 before kicking off work on the restaurant.
The actress is known to speak about her faith regularly.
In March 2021, Priyanka talked about her faith and her upbringing in India during her appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show.
Priyanka said: “I grew up in a convent school.
“I was aware of Christianity. My dad used to sing in a mosque, I was aware of Islam.
“I grew up in a Hindu family, I was aware of that.
“Spirituality is such a large part of India that you really cannot ignore it.”
Priyanka and Nick have been married since December 2018.
The couple had a lavish wedding complete with two ceremonies – a Christian wedding officiated by Nick’s father and one per Hindu rituals.
Meanwhile, the actress is currently in Spain, shooting for her web series Citadel.
