The actress was feeling a little homesick, but Fallon was quick to change that by celebrating the Hindu festival of Holi during their interview. The two painted each other’s faces while laughing. Fallon even seemed to be caught of guard by Chopra’s enthusiasm as he kept on saying, “You really went for it!”
Chopra who was born in Jharkhand explained to Fallon that the festival was all about welcoming spring and the triumph of good over evil. The festival was meant to be one huge party with paint powder and traditional drinks.
It’s great to the see Chopra so proud to speak about her culture and bring it to a North American stage for a wider audience to enjoy and learn more about.
