Celebrity couple Nick and Priyanka Chopra Jonas are set to produce a reality series with Amazon Studios based on the pre-wedding event known as ‘sangeet’.
The pre-nuptial tradition sees families of the betrothed indulging in extravagant song and dance performances the night before the big day.
Priyanka also announced the series on Instagram:
Amazon has confirmed that the couple will play an active part in the unscripted show.
Every episode will focus on an engaged couple as they indulge in the preparations for their own sangeet.
Nick and Priyanka got married in December last year with their grand wedding receiving widespread coverage.
Priyanka said in a statement: “We rewatched 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.
“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,” said Priyanka in a statement.
“The days leading up to our sangeet were some of the most special, memorable moments of the weekend,” added Nick.
Casting for the show is underway and shooting will begin next year.
