“Quantico” star Priyanka Chopra and US singer Nick Jonas are to marry this weekend in a two-day ceremony at a venue dubbed India’s most opulent royal palace.
Chopra, 36, and 26-year-old Jonas were engaged this year after meeting at an Oscars after-party last year.
The couple arrived with their families in the western Indian heritage city of Jodhpur on Thursday, and headed to the Umaid Bhawan Palace where the wedding will take place.
“People will need vacations after this wedding,” Chopra said in an interview with Vogue magazine published on Thursday.
The palace is the home of the Jodhpur royal family, and is believed to be the world’s sixth largest private residence. Part of the palace has been converted into a Taj heritage hotel with peacocks roaming 26 acres of landscaped gardens.

A night’s stay in the Grand Presidential suite can cost more than 500,000 rupees ($7,168), according to the hotel website.
