While some amours were nothing more than baseless rumors (cough … Tom Hiddleston … cough), there were a few real relationships Priyanka Chopra had fully invested in. But after dating (or allegedly dating) some of the hottest Hollywood (and non-Hollywood) men, this exotic beauty has settled for one of the best—American singer-songwriter Nick Jonas!
Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas have been dating for just a couple of months now, but that didn’t stop the young heartthrob from putting a ring on it! However, there were others before Mr. Jonas who came along and stole her heart. Who are the other lucky few?
Here is Priyanka Chopra’s dating timeline and list of boyfriends she has had over the years.
List of Men Priyanka Chopra Has Dated (or Allegedly Dated):
- Nick Jonas – American Singer (2018)
- Gerard Butler – Scottish Actor (rumored between 2009 and 2010)
- Shahid Kapoor – Bollywood Actor (rumored in 2009)
- Harman Baweja – Bollywood Actor (2007 – 2009)
- Aseem Merchant – Bollywood Model and Actor (1999 – 2002)
Nick Jonas, Current Boyfriend (Now Fiancé)
Quantico’s Priyanka Chopra and singer Nick Jonas are in complete bliss. As if the two couldn’t look anymore in love after being a couple for only a couple months now, Jonas popped the big question and Chopra said, “Yes!”
They were first linked together when they walked hand-in-hand on the MET Gala red carpet back in 2017.
While both the stars wore Ralph Lauren and stunned everyone, it was their decision to go together that sparked more dating rumors than they both could have imagined.
“We were both wearing Ralph Lauren, and we decided to go together because it was fun,” the actress said while on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
So, it seemed the two were just friends.
Jonas, 25, and Chopra 35, laid low since the rumors sparked. They had also been dodging the golden question in interviews.
But then in May of this year, photos of the two out on what looked like “dates” began to emerge, until they both came out with it—they were officially dating!
So, you can understand why the announcement came as such a shock to fans, as it was one of the quickest celebrity proposals! (Take it easy, Biebs. We know.)
Gerard Butler, Rumored to Have Dated
Back in 2009, actor Gerard Butler visited India where he spent a lot of time with Bollywood stars. That’s when he got the chance to hang out with the Slumdog Millionaire children as well.
It was reported that his farewell party was hosted by none other than Chopra at her Versova home. At the time, reports of Butler being thoroughly smitten by Chopra created waves in the country and abroad.
But when a proposal came her way, Chopra, just like her fans, was taken by surprise!
Butler the Romantic
Butler got down on one knee and everything for Chopra, but it was all in good humor. It became an ongoing joke between the two, as Butler would get down on one knee every half hour, only to make Chopra laugh out loud!
She hilariously had no interest in being Gerard Butler’s wife. And in and interview in 2012, Butler called her out again!
He jokingly said, “I’m still single because I’m waiting for Priyanka Chopra.”
The Scottish actor seems to be in love with Morgan Brown now, but his admiration for Chopra had fans hoping for a romance!
Shahid Kapoor, Rumored Ex-Boyfriend
Priyanka Chopra is a mega Bollywood star. She has worked with the who’s who of the Indian film industry.

Shahid Kapoor has shared screen space with the global star in three movies.
When they were shooting for their first venture (Kaminey) together back in 2009, sparks seem to have flown!
The hit duo even went on India’s top talk show, Koffee with Karan. However, they stayed tight-lipped despite the coy host’s questions about their relationship.
The rumors soon dwindled, and it looks like the couple moved on sooner than later.
Kapoor is now married and has two children.
Harman Baweja, Ex-Boyfriend
Harman Baweja and Priyanka Chopra worked on the futuristic love story called 2050. And they appeared to have bonded well!
The two stars were the talk of the town in India between 2007 and 2008. They were also spotted in various locations together.
Did You Know?
Baweja, though not a famous star, was reportedly very invested in Chopra as a costar and as a woman he adored.
Reason for Breakup: The Couple Drifted Apart
Things went south for the duo soon after they reportedly started dating, and they were broken up by 2009. It is uncertain as to what caused the two to separate, but it looks like they parted ways with mutual understanding.
Aseem Merchant, Ex-Boyfriend
When Priyanka Chopra was a budding model and actress back in 1999, she was trying to make a mark in the industry. At the time, she was reportedly living in actor and model Aseem Merchant’s home in Mumbai.
The former Miss World (2004) and the actor were dating, but they apparently had a volatile relationship.
Chopra’s ex-manager revealed some inside news about the couple. He said that they would fight a lot, and Chopra would often be left in tears.
