Cue the awws, everyone. Nick Jonas just explained the significance of 'saat pheras' live on a US show. 

The singer, who married actress Priyanka Chopra in a grand ceremony in Jodhpur in December, appeared on an episode of the popular American variety show, 'Martha & Snoop's Potluck Dinner Party', co-hosted by Martha Stewart and American rapper Snoop Dogg.

In a video that is doing the rounds of social media, Nick can be seen discussing his grand wedding to Priyanka and explaining the Hindu rituals to the hosts. 

"She comes from a big Indian family, I obviously have my brothers... we did in Jodhpur, at a palace there which was beautiful. Obviously there was good food, good music... so you do the pheras, in which seven walks around the fire symbolise seven lives together. So I am locked in for good now," Nick explained as they all started laughing.

The couple had two ceremonies. A white wedding to honour Nick's family and his religion and a Hindu ceremony - for Priyanka's faith. 

Nick, in fact, had performed all the Hindu rituals diligently. His sister-in-law, actress Parineeti Chopra had earlier revealed that Nick was the ideal brother-in-law who indulged his sisters-in-law with expensive gifts at the wedding. 

The couple's wedding was closely observed and celebrated world over.
