- Priyanka Chopra celebrated Diwali with her family at her home
- She picked a yellow saree for the Lakshmi Puja
- For the main festivities, she wore a white lehenga
Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas lit up the California sky on Thursday night (Friday morning in India) with their sparkling Diwali celebrations. How do we know this? Thanks to Nick Jonas, we got a glimpse of his and Priyanka Chopra's Diwali party at their house in Los Angeles and it is amazing. The singer shared a video featuring himself and the actress and wrote: "Happy Diwali to you and yours. Sending you all love and light. My beautiful wife has introduced me to so many wonderful Indian holidays and traditions. My heart is so full to be able to share this with our friends and family." In the clip, Priyanka looks every bit of gorgeous in a white lehenga. Nick can be seen holding her affectionately and posing for the camera as it records a video of them in his post.

On Diwali morning, Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas invited Goddess Mahalakshmi's "grace and abundance" into their home in California by performing a puja in the presence of their family and friends on Thursday. Priyanka, who was with actress-filmmaker Mindy Kaling and friends Deepica Mutyala and Lilly Singh on Diwali eve (more on that later), celebrated the festival with her family at her home. She picked a yellow saree for the Lakshmi Puja while Nick Jonas opted for a simple yet elegant white kurta set. The actress posted several pictures of herself and her husband performing the puja at their home and accompanied them with Lakshmi mantra. She added: "With the blessings of Goddess Mahalakshmi we invite Her grace and abundance into our home. Happy Diwali."
