While Nick said, "This is my first show in India. And thank you all so very much for coming out."

"I wasn't too far from here that I took Madhu (Priyanka's mother) out to lunch and asked her if I could marry her daughter. So to be here tonight with all of you...the people who have helped shape who she has become means the world to me. To be embraced with such open arms, it's just unbelievable. Tonight is about celebrating and spending time, it is my first introduction with you all."

Priyanka and Nick tied the knot at Jodhpur's Umaid Bhawan Palace on 1 December. They married as per Christian and Hindu rituals. The extravagant wedding was followed by a reception in Delhi on 4 December, which was attended by prime minister Narendra Modi.

After their Delhi reception, the couple went off to Oman. As per media reports, Priyanka later went back to New York, to promote her movie Isn't It Romantic.
