Why Priyanka Chopra dating Nick Jonas is none of your concern

Women have preferences, they have their own fantasies and now they have learnt to speak their mind and make their opinions heard and valued. Their voices don’t echo only in their heads anymore, they make sure they are heard out loud by everyone, if need be. Not only that, there are some men, maybe just a handful, who have accepted the fact that women, if not superior, can be at par with them. But when it comes to relationships, it doesn’t take even a second for people to judge them. Times have changed, agreed, but have they really when it comes to women dating?

Let’s take Priyanka Chopra for instance. She’s a global icon, a star who has been an inspiration not only for women but men too, but have we spared her when it comes to her relationship? Be it in the past or the most recent one, we haven’t taken time to pass judgements on her. And no, it’s not just the common man but media too; we apologise.

Being a celebrity comes with its own set of pros and cons. Where one side there’s fame, glamour, undying attention from the fans, the other side there’s constant pressure of living up to the expectations. To handle the repercussions of being a celebrity is not a piece of cake for everyone. There’s immense curiosity around their personal life which results in multiple stories floating on social media. When Priyanka Chopra, 35 years, was spotted with Nick Jonas, 25 years, social media couldn’t stop buzzing with the news of their ‘new relationship’. The mention of the age difference was intentional because that has become the major concern of people.

It’s not the first time PeeCee’s love life is being discussed. She has been linked to a certain superstar in the past and during that time, the age was never a concern. Why? because he is older to her? Because traditionally, if the man is older it never makes eyes pop. It’s the 21st century, why the indifference towards women? With all the fingers being raised, public bashing, mob lynching; looks like we’re going back in time and our thoughts are becoming regressive (here we are addressing to the majority part of the society).

Most recently, we saw Neha Dhupia tie the knot with Angad Bedi (Neha is 2 years older to Angad).

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding was one of the biggest occasions this year but all some people could conclude from this, was the three years age difference between the two.

A few more names to add to the list: Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan (2 years older), Sachin Tendulkar and Anjali Tendulkar (6 years older) Adhuna Akhtar and Farhan Akhtar (6 years older), Farah Khan and Shirish Kunder (8 years older), Namrata Shirodkar and Mahesh Babu (2 years older), Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling (6 years older), Deborra-Lee Furness and Hugh Jackman (12 years older), Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher (15 years older) all these couples have men who are younger to the female counterparts. Their relationship may have gone kaput but the age has nothing to do with it. The sooner we get it the better it is.

When you fall in love, you just fall in love irrespective of the age, cast, gender. Period. Priyanka is self-dependent, her choice to date a man is hers Alone. Why age shame now? Let her go on dates, attend concerts, travel with her rumoured beau, attend weddings, that’s what all couples in love do together, don’t they? Older, younger or the man of the same age, PeeCee is in love (if she is) and that is what we should celebrate!

Let’s get one thing straight first, they haven’t publicly admitted to being in a relationship. Their public appearances together may say that the couple is in love but they haven’t asked for your opinion or suggestion. Even if they are together, let them be happy and live their lives in peace. Let them enjoy their new beginning and cherish it; rather than making it ugly with all those hate comments and trolls.
