Parineeti Chopra has shared inside pictures from her engagement to AAP leader Raghav Chadha last weekend. The Shuddh Desi Romance actress posted a set of photos from the Sikh ardaas that took place in New Delhi’s Kapurthala House on May 13. The pictures show the couple, dressed in white, being blessed by the head of the Akal Takht and listening to the shabads being sung. Parineeti captioned the post: “Felt surreal to be blessed by the Jathedar of the Akal Takht Sahib, Singh Sahib Giani Harpreet Singh Ji. His sacred presence at our engagement meant everything to us.”
In the comments thread, Parineeti’s brother Shivang drew attention to their father Pawan Chopra wiping his eyes in the third picture: “A casual Papa tearing up in the background is the highlight.”

The grand engagement ceremony was attended by Parineeti’s cousin Priyanka Chopra, who flew in from Los Angeles, and designer Manish Malhotra, who created the bride-to-be’s look. Raghav Chadha invited his AAP colleagues Arvind Kejriwal and Bhagwant Mann, chief ministers of Delhi and Punjab respectively, and political leaders like P Chidambaram of the Congress and Derek O’Brien of the Trinamool Congress.
After the engagement, the couple shared matching posts on social media. Parineeti’s caption read: “Everything I prayed for… I said yes!”
Parineeti and Raghav have been making headlines these last couple of months after being spotted on a dinner date and then variously at airports and restaurants.
Parineeti Chopra was last seen in the film Uunchai. Her lineup includes Chamkila and The Great Indian Rescue.
