One source told E News: "It's a tradition for them to meet before the wedding and Priyanka's family insisted on hosting the Jonas family in their country.

"Priyanka wants everything to be traditional to respect her family's values, and definitely an Indian wedding."

It is understood Jonas proposed to Chopra in London for her 36th birthday after shutting down a Tiffany store in New York to choose a ring. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the ring is said to be a five-carat diamond worth $300,000 (Dh1.1million).

There is no date yet for the wedding although it is understood that the pair do not want a long engagement.
