Security has been beefed up at the Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur for Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’ wedding.
As the pre-nuptial ceremonies started from today, most of the hotel staff members have been sent on leave, and their place has been taken up by employees of the event management and security firms hired by the hosts.
Only the key management — including the general manager — will continue to work over the next five days, but won’t be allowed to use their smartphones.
The staff will be handed over basic phones, while even the guests cannot carry their mobiles for any of the ceremonies.
Stringent measures are being taken in order to prevent any leakage of photographs or videos since the couple has already struck a $2.5-million deal with an international magazine for the pictures’ rights.
