17 August 2023, Mumbai: Priyanka Chopra Jonas, the versatile actor, has taken a significant stride in her hospitality journey by concluding her collaboration with the celebrated New York eatery, Sona. Founded and unveiled amidst the challenges of 2021, Sona showcased a fusion of ornate allure inspired by India’s art deco heritage alongside a medley of culinary treasures from the Indian subcontinent.
Priyanka Chopra Jonas was hailed as the prime architect behind Sona’s essence
Amid the flurry of attention it garnered, Sona embraced an eclectic array of patrons drawn to its immersive ambience and a diverse tapestry of dishes, encompassing classics like paneer tikka and the flavorsome Goan fish curry. At its inception, Chopra Jonas was hailed as the prime architect behind Sona’s essence, adulated for shaping key facets including its aesthetics, menu curation, and the harmonious auditory backdrop that enveloped the dining experience. However, recent reports unveil a change in Chopra Jonas’ trajectory within the realm of hospitality. While Sona will persist in its gastronomic endeavors, she will no longer wield her creative brushstrokes as an active partner. Emanating from this transformation is the potential for her to propel her aspirations to a global scale, unshackled by the confines of a single venture.
Priyanka’s Spokesperson addresses her Exit
A spokesperson from her camp affirmed that Sona’s development was a monumental highlight in Chopra Jonas’ journey, a reflection of her steadfast commitment to amplify Indian culture through multifaceted narratives. Notwithstanding the pride associated with this milestone, the canvas of her culinary and hospitality expedition appears to stretch far beyond this chapter. “The act of stepping away from Sona has unfurled a panorama of prospects on a broader canvas, igniting her enthusiasm for the journeys yet to unfold,” the spokesperson emphasized.
Fans Reaction to Priyanka’s Farewell to Sona
The reins of Sona’s continuation have been entrusted to Maneesh K. Goyal, a collaborator who stands as a cornerstone in Chopra Jonas’ orbit. However, the web of reactions that has entangled the digital landscape underscores the indelible mark she etched on the establishment. The news stirred a spectrum of sentiments, with some lamenting her departure, pondering the whys and wherefores that led to this juncture. “Such an unexpected twist! This is truly a shocker,” one enthusiast exclaimed, while another pondered the influence of her spouse with a whimsical touch, “Seems like Nick’s touch was golden for the restaurant.” Disappointment mingled with hope as a supporter bemoaned the missed opportunity, yearning for authenticity, “I’m kind of glad. The authenticity of the cuisine was diluted. Hoping for a more genuine venture.”
In the wake of this transformation, Chopra Jonas embarks on an expedition with a story woven from myriad ambitions. Her trajectory unfurls towards the expanse of global horizons, as she embraces the canvas of hospitality, coloring it with her vibrant narrative and culinary craftsmanship. The culmination of her journey with Sona, while a chapter closed, ushers in a symphony of new possibilities and uncharted experiences
