We were doing prep for the wedding on set and my co-producers and Shonali, they were so accommodating.”
Bose who was also present added, “The last scene we were shooting before their wedding made Nick emotional. We had told (Nick) to come at the end because we were doing some champagne and cake for them, but he came a little early and we were out in the dark and (Priyanka) was doing a very, very intense scene and I heard a sniff and I suddenly turned and there was Nick standing next to me and he was just crying.” Chopra Jonas then quoted Bose who said at the time “You made your husband cry. This is a great scene.”
