Priyanka Chopra explains why she took Nick Jonas' name: I'm 'old-school like that'

Two months after her wedding to Nick Jonas, Priyanka Chopra is still getting used to hearing her new last name.

"Every time someone says that, my face goes a little like, 'Oh, that happened,' " the actress revealed to "Tonight" host Jimmy Fallon after he introduced her as Priyanka Chopra Jonas on Tuesday.

"It's a big deal! I didn't realize it was that much of a big deal until I did it," she said, explaining that keeping her previous surname was never in the cards.

"I always wanted to add his last name to mine because I feel like we're becoming family," she told Fallon. "I'm a little traditional and old-school like that."

Even so, Chopra Jonas said, "I don't take away my identity. He gets added to who I am."

Done deal:  Priyanka Chopra, Nick Jonas get marriedwith Hindu wedding in India

Fallon couldn't resist from showing a few photos from the couple's three-day wedding extravaganza, which went down in India on Dec. 1.

Fallon and the actress agreed that her new husband "looks like a prince" in the picture from their Hindu ceremony.

"He really rocked that turban," she laughed. "It's hard to rock a turban with a feather!"

Surprisingly, the Bollywood-bred actress revealed she hadn't initially planned to marry in India. 

She said that after the couple rejected numerous remote island locations due to logistical complications, "Nick just said, 'Why aren't we doing this in India? Shouldn't I be taking my bride from her home?' "

Once she committed to the idea, they went full-on Indian wedding, including holding a sangeet ceremony, which she described as "a rehearsal dinner but not boring."

She explained, "It's like a song-and-dance celebration that the families put on for the bride and groom. So there's Team Bride and Team Groom." 

All the arrangements are kept secret, she said, because neither side can know what the other has planned. "It's a competition and because we're really extra, we had a giant trophy and it looked like Coachella."

Fallon couldn't disagree. "That's a rager," he declared, looking at the sangeet photo.

Chopra Jonas revealed that husband Nick was "very competitive. He literally came out of a cake."

In fact, she was "shocked" at how far the Jonas clan went. "They brought it in such a big way."
