It’s safe to assume the ultimate desi girl didn’t want to miss the usual festivities just because she was in New York for Diwali, so Priyanka Chopra pulled out all the stops to make Manhattan feel a bit more like Mumbai last week. The Quantico actress hosted a star-studded bash for friends and family at her Upper East Side apartment, with gajras, ladoos, phooljhadis and mehndi on offer — besides everything else reminiscent of the season.
Dressed in a sheer white sari that was a gift from her mother, PeeCee accessorised with a green bindi and wore white roses in her hair. Her home was decked out too, with brilliant yellow and orange marigolds, rangoli and sparkling lights. Instead of the customary teen patti, but in the spirit of the season, a section was set up for those who wanted to try their luck at blackjack and roulette. Bollywood music was played for much of the evening (we hear Pinga and Tune Maari Entriyaan were on PeeCee’s playlist), with Jay Sean burning up the dance floor alongside many of Priyanka’s Quantico co-stars. When the party finally wrapped up, filmmaker Gurinder Chadha and other guests left with crystal-studded gift boxes — not to mention big smiles on their faces!
