MUMBAI - Maybe Priyanka Chopra should have had dinner with just her mother and beau Nick Jonas.

An intimate affair would have allowed the two to know more about each other at their first meeting.

But other family members turned up too.

No wonder the Indian actress' mother told the DNA lifestyle portal: "We just went out for dinner where Nick was present.

"But there were 10-odd people, so I didn't get the time to know him that well."

Asked what her impression of the 25-year-old American singer was, she added: "I've met him for the first time, so it's too early to form an opinion."

Chopra, 35, had brought Jonas to Mumbai to meet her family and join in a family vacation in Goa.

The trip to India also allowed the couple to attend a glitzy, high-profile event last week.

Chopra and Jonas - who have been inseparable in recent months - kept photographers busy at an engagement party thrown by Mr Akash Ambani, son of India's richest man, business magnate Mukesh Ambani.

Jonas' family have already met Chopra, who won Miss World in 2000, when the couple showed up at his cousin's wedding in New Jersey.

But while Chopra's mother may be less than effusive about Jonas for now, readers of Maxim India magazine have had no reservations expressing their love for the actress.

Chopra, who has forged a career in American movies and television, was ranked the "hottest woman on the planet" for the fifth year in a row.
