It’s an honour: Priyanka Chopra on being the first Indian to host the prestigious Met Gala with husband Nick Jonas


After ruling Bollywood for over a decade, Priyanka Chopra ventured into Hollywood and has emerged as a global icon. Now adding another feather to her cap, the stunning actress has become the first Indian to host the prestigious Met Gala this year as she joins husband Nick Jonas on the Met Gala’s Benefit Committee. Interestingly, the couple will be joined by the who's who of Hollywood including Katy Perry, Blake Lively,  Ryan Reynolds, Bradley Cooper, Jared Leto, Lupita Nyong’o, Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez among others.

Talking about it, a leading daily quoted a source as saying, “It was a unanimous call to get Nickyanka as hosts for the event because of the way they have been newsmakers in the last two years. The organisers wanted an Indian face to represent the country and who better than PC?”
