Tagging Nick, the 36-year-old actor wrote, "A heartfelt thank you to our Hon'ble Prime Minister Shri @narendramodi ji for gracing us with your presence. Touched by your kind words and blessings."

Similar to the two-part nuptials, the reception was also a fiercely guarded event.

There was tight security around the luxury hotel and since the prime minister attended the event, policemen were also on their toes.Priyanka and Nick, 26, exchanged wedding vows on December 1 at Jodhpur's majestic Umaid Bhawan Palace in a Catholic ceremony officiated by the groom's father Kevin Jonas Sr. It was followed by an equally grand wedding as per Hindu traditions on December 2.

Congratulations have been pouring in - both from within the fraternity and outside - since the couple first exchanged vows.
