Rani Mukherjee to marry Aditya Chopra in January 2014
Another big fat Bollywood wedding is going to take place and this time it is of Yash Raj head honcho Aditya Chopra and Bollywood actress Rani Mukherjee. According to an insider, the date has been finalized and the duo will walk down the aisle in January 2014. The couple was supposed to marry early last year but due to the death of Yash Chopra the plan pushed behind.
"Rani will get married in grand filmi style to Aditya Chopra in January 2014. The couple is finalising the date according to the shubh mahurat decided by Aditya’s mother Pamela in consultation with the family priest," he said. "According to Punjabi customs, no festivities or celebrations take place for a year after the death of a family member," he said.
The insider added: “Yashji fell sick during the making of the film (‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’) and the dutiful son (Aditya) took over the reigns. He was in London for the better part of the year, as was Rani. This being a big film as Chopra Sr was returning to the big screen after a long break. He wanted energies to be focused on the film and nothing else, so the wedding was put off till after the release of the film.”
“According to Punjabi customs, no festivities or celebrations take place till after a year of death of a family member. The 365 days following the demise of a close relative is called an impurity period,” the source continued. And now, with the stipulated one year coming to an end, wedding preparations in the Chopra and Mukherjee's household are reportedly in full swing.
For quite a long time, rumor of Aditya Chopra and Rani Mukherjee’s impending wedding made the rounds but the duo maintained silence on this private matter. They couple were also spotted in many occasions spending quality time together.
Things were crystal clear only last
year when Rani and Aditya’s family went for a family vacation.
