Bollywood-Hollywood actor Priyanka Chopra Jonas has announced that she is opening an Indian cuisine restaurant in New York. The actress took to social media to announce that she is now the proud co-owner of an Indian restaurant in New York.

Making the big announcement, Priyanka wrote, “I’m thrilled to present to you SONA, a new restaurant in NYC that I poured my love for Indian food into. SONA is the very embodiment of timeless India and the flavours I grew up with. The kitchen is helmed by the incredible Chef @harinayak, a masterful talent, who has created the most delicious and innovative menu, taking you on a food journey through my amazing country.”

Priyanka added, “SONA is opening later this month, and I can’t wait to see you there! This endeavour would not have been possible without the leadership of my friends Maneesh Goyal and David Rabin. Thank you to our designer Melissa Bowers and the rest of the team for realizing this vision so clearly.”
While sharing the photos, Priyanka also gave a glimpse of herself performing puja with husband Nick Jonas. “The second and third photos were taken in September 2019 when we performed a small intimate Puja (prayer ceremony) to bless the space that would soon become @sonanewyork Godspeed!” wrote Priyanka.
