After Nick Jonas recently confirmed that he and actress Priyanka Chopra are, indeed, engaged, the couple flew to Mumbai, India, to take part in what’s called a “Roka,” an Indian prewedding ceremony.

There, Nick met Priyanka’s parents, who appeared to be very impressed and approving of the “Jealous” singer.

“He’s calm and mature. I always trust Priyanka’s judgment; she’s not impulsive. She gave it a lot of thought. I was sure it would be good,” Priyanka’s mother, Madhu, told DNA India. “Everyone in the family just loves him. He’s so polite toward elders. What more can a mother want?”

She likewise appreciates Nick’s respect for Indian traditions. “It was a new thing for him, and he took it seriously. He chanted the Sanskrit mantras accurately … beautifully,” said Madhu, who has nothing but good words for Nick’s parents, who also made the trip. “They’re nice people.” —ALLAN POLICARPIO
