MUMBAI: Rani Mukerji, who is close to Aditya Chopra, celebrated this Diwali at the Chopra residence.
Rani joined many other celebrities in celebrating the festival at Aditya Chopra’s residence.
Dressed in a maroon-coloured saree, Rani could be seen enjoying the festival and participating in fireworks with members of the Chopra family.
Though Rani and Aditya Chopra have never spoken about their relationship, there is no denying that they have been romantically involved for some time. Often, there have been rumours that the couple will tie the knot, but it has never materialized.
So, what is the hitch?
Aditya’s mother Pamela Chopra has not been very happy about the relationship after her son’s divorce from Payal Khanna to whom Aditya was married from 2001 to 2009. Payal was the favourite of both Pamela and Yash Chopra, but the marriage didn’t last. Many blamed Rani for Aditya’s divorce from Payal.
Rani and Aditya have known each other for almost a decade. Over the years, two got very close as Rani became the favourite heroine of Yash Raj Films. Their closeness slowly turned into romantic involvement.
But now Aditya’s mother has reportedly reconciled to their relationship. So is Rani’s participation in Diwali celebrations at the Chopra household a hint of things to come? Hopefully, it could be time for wedding bells.
