Priyanka Chopra, an Indian-origin actress in Bollywood and Hollywood, has been invited by Dubai’s Emaar to say her vows again with American musician Nick Jonas, at the world’s highest man-made point, the spire of Burj Khalifa.

In an Instagram post, Emaar Dubai invited Chopra and Jonas to say their vows “once again, at the highest man-made point in the world, Burj Khalifa spire”.

The post by Emaar continues: “We’ve planned it all, you just need to say yes! [Message] us if you are up for it.”

It is yet unclear whether Chopra or Jonas have responded to Emaar. Both artists recently married at Jodhpur’s Umaid Bhavan palace in Rajasthan, India.

Burj Khalifa’s spire is among the most high-profile features of the 828m-high world’s tallest building. The telescopic spire is comprised of more than 3,628 tonnes of structural steel. The spire was constructed from inside the building and jacked to its full height of over 200m (700ft) using a hydraulic pump.

In addition to securing the Burj Khalifa's place as the world's tallest structure, the spire is integral to the overall design, creating a sense of completion for the landmark. The spire also houses communications equipment.

Chopra and Jonas will join a long list of celebrities that have visited Burj Khalifa. Tom Cruise visited Burj Khalifa to film scenes for Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol, while French 'Spiderman' Alain Robert climbed the world's tallest tower in 2011. 

Robert began the climb at 6pm and reached the top of the spire of the building just after midnight. Known for climbing unassisted, Robert agreed to use a harness as stipulated by officials prior to the climb.

He also used climbing equipment to scramble up the tower's spire as there was nothing to grip on to on the sheer surface of the spire.
