Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra are set to use their wedding as inspiration for an upcoming unscripted series via Amazon
On Wednesday (December 11), the retail and streaming giant announced that it has green lit an untitled dance competition, which has begun casting, that is inspired by the Indian pre-wedding tradition called the Sangeet. In case you weren’t aware, the Sangeet happens the night before the ceremony and brings both families together for an evening of performance and song.
"We re-watched the video of our Sangeet last week on our first anniversary, and the togetherness of our family and friends during this event still sparks the same warmth and excitement that it did just over a year ago at our wedding," Chopra said in a statement. "The Sangeet is a centuries-old Indian wedding tradition, that not only celebrates the union of two people, but also signifies the introduction and bonding of two families coming together in a marriage.”
The series will be filmed in 2020, with the participates offering the creatives for their respective ceremonies. Amazon has described the series as "a celebration of the love, marriage and magic that ensues when friends and family come together through music and dance the evening before the wedding. The engaged couples featured throughout will hail from a diverse range of cultural backgrounds and locations. Each episode will follow an engaged couple along with their wedding party, family and friends, as they not only prepare for the wedding itself, but also rehearse for what will be an epic performance with the help of a team of celebrity choreographers, stylists and creative directors."
Meanwhile, the JoBro said that the days leading up to his Sangeet with Priyanka were one of the many highlights of the weekend. “Bringing the concept of this musical celebration to the mainstream in a new way, through couples setting out on one of the most exciting journeys of their life, is an idea that we are proud to bring to life with Amazon,” he explained.
