Priyanka Chopra released her new book, Unfinished, this week, and her husband, Nick Jonas, wants a signed copy. Nick posted a photo of himself holding the book on his Instagram Story, and along with the pic, he asked Pri to sign it for him.
Priyanka Chopra re-posted the picture on her own page and added, “Hahahah babuuuuuu! I love you and yes yes yes!” Fans were quick to point out Priyanka’s use of the word ‘Babu’ in her post.
Babu is an Indian word that’s used as a “term of respect towards men.” One fan was so excited over Priyanka’s use of the word, that she even recorded a video about it. Priyanka shared the video on her own Twitter page and gushed, “What an amazing observation!”
In the video, the fan pointed out that using the word ‘Babu’ has seemingly become frowned upon, and she applauded Priyanka Chopra for sticking to her roots. Seems Nick Jonas’ nickname has a historical meaning.
