Even the slightest decisions might ignite divorce rumours when you’re a star in a high-profile relationship. In the middle of all the media speculation about altering her Instagram name, Priyanka Chopra, who is usually seen wearing her Mangalsutra, recently commented about how she felt the first time she wore it after marrying an American actor-singer, Nick Jonas.

On her Instagram feed, Priyanka shared a promotional endorsement for a jewellery brand that has launched a trendy Mangalsutra. As a married woman, the actor mentioned wearing a Mangalsutra. “I remember when I wore mine for the first time… because we have grown with the idea of what it means. It was just a very special moment for me. At the same time, as a modern woman, I also understand the repercussions of what it means. Do I like the idea of wearing mangalsutra or is it too patriarchal? But at the same time, I am that generation that’s sort of in the middle. Maintain tradition but know who you are and what you stand for. And we’ll see the next generation of girls might do differently.”

She wrote, “I’m also trying to carry traditions forward,” referring to her efforts to do so, she added, “A conversation starter for sure. The beautiful understated @bulgari Mangalsutra, designed with love and respect by @lucia_silvestri. Take traditions forward by knowing who and what you stand for… I’m trying and learning every day.”

She also explained to the other individual why black beads are used in a Mangalsutra. “The black beads to fight off evil and protect you,” she explained.

Priyanka Chopra wore a Mangalsutra shortly after her December 2018 wedding to Nick Jonas. The pair have been married for three years and lives in a luxury home in Los Angeles. Even though she lives in the United States, Priyanka frequently offers glimpses of how she continues to follow Indian customs and culture.
