I fell in love with Adi because he's extremely private, Rani Mukherji


Filmmaker Aditya Chopra is an extremely private person. He doesn’t like socializing and totally guarded about his personal life. This very nature of Aditya attracted his wife and actress Rani Mukherji towards him. Rani feels Adi is exactly like her who loves spending time with family after work. She added that she fell in love with Aditya Chopra because he is an extremely private person. 

"The reason why I fell in love with my husband was because he is extremely private. For me, after being in the industry for so many years, he was one person I really respected. It is very difficult to respect people in the fraternity as you know the inside out of everything. So, Adi was one of those rare people who I really respected, who I still respect, because of his ethos, work pattern and the way he is. Because I am private myself, it makes us a really good couple because we are very happy going nowhere," Rani told CNN News 18.

She went on to compare Aditya with Karan Johar who is everywhere. She added that Aditya is completely opposite to Karan Johar.

"For Adi, I feel if he was to be like Karan Johar, I don't think I'd have fallen in love with him. Karan is everywhere, he is so social and he is the life of a party. Every day he is doing something or the other. The thing with me is that I need my family at home. I am a very family-oriented person. I would go mad if my husband was working; as it is half the time he is in the studio. Imagine, him having a social life beyond his films. Half the time, I would not get to see him. I am very happy and content that he (Aditya Chopra) is not a social person. After his work, he comes back home to me," the actress added.

On the work front, Rani is gearing up for the release of ‘Hichki’ directed by Sidharth P Malhotra. In the film, she plays a teacher who suffers from Tourette syndrome.
