Priyanka wrote a long caption and revealed how her husband Nick had come up with the name, Sona. “TODAY IS OPENING DAY @sonanewyork! What started as a simple craving for great Indian food has become this labor of love, and I can’t wait to welcome you all in, and for you to experience timeless India in the heart of NYC!” she wrote.
“This has been a team effort all the way... from the many many menu deliberations, food tastings, and decor decisions with @maneeshkgoyal, @davidrabin8, Chef @harinayak, and @mabowersinc, to landing on the perfect name, all thanks to @nickjonas - yes! Hubby came up with the name at an early tasting with the team, as Sona means ‘gold,’ and he had heard that word in India, well...A LOT, throughout our wedding!” she added, along with a laughing emoji.
Although the actress was feeling devastated as she was not there for its opening day. Due to her work commitments, Priyanka is currently in London. "I’m devastated I’m not there to celebrate, but I’m definitely there in heart and spirit...and on FaceTime," she added.
