Celebrity marriage season is in full swing and along with Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas, there has also been another celebrity couple making the headlines lately; Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas finally tied the knot a few months ago and we must say, married life definitely suits the two!
Chopra recently shared the sweetest present her husband gave her after topping the Billboards Chart for the band’s latest single, Sucker. Speaking to the media, Chopra revealed that her new husband has totally changed her mental approach to work and life, for the better of course.
In a heart-warming interview, Chopra talked about marrying Nick and becoming a part of the Jonas family, which made her realize there is so much more should be doing both as a celebrity and woman for society.
While Chopra has been in the limelight since decades thanks to her celebrity status, most of us would not associate her with charitable work and foundations.
Her marriage with Nick Jonas changed this mindset drastically since Nick and his brother were closely linked with five different charities, which in turn inspired her to pursue a charitable cause that she is truly passionate about.
During the Cannes Film Festival, Chopra actively promoted 5B, a documentary film made by Dan Krauss and Paul Haggis that features the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the wards of San Francisco General Hospital, which had been operational since the 1980s.
The documentary depicts how the hospital staff avoided any contact with the patients in fear of contracting the disease themselves along with the condition of ill-patients who were in desperate need of help and compassion, as opposed to censorship and isolation.
It was during this time that a group of nurses created a special ward named 5B for patients with HIV and AIDS and though HIV was relatively unheard of and not much was known about the disease in those days, the nurses devised a health care plan which catered specifically to the patients in ward 5B.
It seems Priyanka is on a mission to educate people about the existence and threats posed by HIV and AIDs, especially in under-developed and impoverished societies, including her home country of India.
Priyanka lauded the nurses and medical professionals who risked their lives to give care, compassion, and attention to the patients in 5B along with all of the medical professionals working with the disease. Chopra compared these heroes to Mother Teresa of Calcutta who did not relent in helping a patient with leprosy in India.
Working as a Unit
The actress reveals she felt more empowered to work not only for her dreams but also in helping others and though she had always been secretly charitable and worked independently to help people whenever she could, now she has a life partner she can really strengthen those attributes of selflessness and compassion with.
Now, she, along with her husband Nick, the Jonas Brothers, as well as her sisters-in-law are all working together as a unit to support their chosen charities, foundations and causes. Now that’s real beauty, both inside and outside.
