Priyanka Chopra celebrates Holi on Jimmy Fallon's show, says she feels less homesick

Priyanka Chopra played Holi with TV show host Jimmy Fallon on an episode of The Tonight Show aired on  13 March, 2017. The duo covered each other with colours and wished viewers a happy Holi.

Chopra and Fallon were discussing how the former was feeling homesick because it was Holi back in India the day they were shooting. After wishing the viewers in India for Holi, Chopra explained the significance of the festival, calling it "the invoking of Spring, the triumph of good over evil. It's just a big party with lots of colours." Fallon then showed the audience a picture of Holi celebrations.

Chopra also explained bhang to Fallon as a drink made of "milk and almond, and magical substances which makes you appreciate the colours better"; a description that made Fallon raise his eyebrows. Fallon said that they didn't want Chopra to be homesick, so they got her seven bowls filled with different colours.

He also brought out two beer mugs filled with thandai. The duo drank the thandai and went on to colour each other's faces. Priyanka Chopra later posted tweets talking about the experience of being on the show.

She also posted a picture on Instagram:
