Previously, she has also spoken out about the challenges of maintaining a long-distance relationship amid the ongoing pandemic — during lockdown, Chopra found herself shooting Amazon’s Citadel in London while Jonas remained in Los Angeles — following divorce rumors last year.
On InStyle’s Ladies First With Laura Brown podcast she shared,
“This year has been really tough. It was really, really tough to be away from home for an entire year, especially at a time when you can’t travel to see your family. I was just alone.”
