Bollywood superstar Priyanka Chopra and U.S. singer Nick Jonas are going to tie a knot this weekend in a two-day ceremony in Jodhpur.

The duo, Priyanka, 36 and Nick 26, were engaged this year after meeting at an Oscar’s after-party last year.

The couple arrived with their families in the western- Indian heritage city of Jodhpur on Thursday and headed to the Umaid Bhawan Palace where the wedding will take place.

There would be two ceremonies, a Traditional Hindu and a Christian one. The groom will be dressed in Royal attire and enter the wedding on a horse, a popular tradition in most North Indian weddings.

“People will need vacations after this wedding”, Priyanka said in an interview with Vogue magazine published on Thursday.

The palace is the home for Jodhpur Royal family, and is believed to be the world’s sixth largest private residence. Part of the palace has been converted into a Taj heritage hotel with peacocks roaming 26 acres of landscaped gardens.

A night’s stay in the Grand Presidential Suite can cost more than 500,000 rupees, according to the hotel website.

Indian media reported that the Hollywood stars are going to attend the lavish wedding, among them Dwayne Johnson, Lupita Nyong’o and talk show host Kelly Ripa are expected to come.
