The actor, in an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, said it was unusual for an Indian wedding to have such a short guest-list and her mother found it hard not to invite the people she knew.

DeGeneres said it seemed the wedding went on forever.

"It was just three days! One Indian ceremony and one western Christian ceremony, and one day of pre-rituals which we have in the Hindu wedding. But it was not, like usually Indian weddings are a thousand people, at least. We only had 200, which was mostly family because both of us have giant families," Chopra told DeGeneres.

"For an Indian family and an Indian wedding, [it was small] for sure. My mother was so upset with me the whole time. She was like, I need to have another wedding for the other 150,000 people that I know! How can I not invite my jeweler? How can I not invite my hairdresser?' So it was a whole conversation," the 36-year-old actor joked.

She doesn't even respond anymore? Nick, you've had such a good relationship with her ' I was very offended for him, honestly. But I'm just the wife. I don't know anything
