But do you know the name ‘Sona’ has a hilarious connection to Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas wedding? Well, if you are wondering how then we have the answer right here.
Speaking to Vogue magazine, Maneesh opened up about how the team came up with the idea of naming the eatery as ‘Sona’. He said, “We were grappling with a list of names, none of which were speaking to us. And then from the corner of the table, from a small kind of voice, Nick Jonas said, ‘What about Sona?’ And we all kind of look at Nick, and Priyanka looks at Nick, and says, ‘First, amazing, how do you even know that word?’ And he remembers it from their wedding, because he remembers gold and Sona being said, because obviously he was thrown into the culture in a big way.”
