Pamela Chopra hosts party for shy Aditya and bride Rani

YRF head honcho Aditya Chopra is a very private person. He doesn’t like socializing and always shy away from public appearances. He is hardly spotted at events, parties, award shows or public events but he can’t deny his mother Pamela Chopra when she insisted on throwing a private bash for the newly married, her son Aditya and his bride Rani Mukherjee.

Pamela thought it was important to formally introduced the newly married to the close friends and relatives after the married couple returned from Italy after a private wedding and honeymoon. Adi objected the idea at first but he had to bow before his mom’s wish and agreed for the private dinner.

On Sunday evening, few close friends of Pamela Chopra and late Yash Chopra dropped at the Chopra’s bungalow for the private wedding bash. Says one of the guests who was present, “The dinner was Pam’s idea. True to his nature, Adi was totally opposed to the idea of a wedding reception. But he can never say no to his mother. Like any mother with a newly-married son, Mrs Chopra was keen to call friends and relatives over after Adi returned with Rani from Italy as an official couple. Especially because close relatives and friends were not invited to be part of the wedding celebrations in Italy.”

Adi agreed to host the party only for his mother’s sake. The guest list included Anupam and Kirron Kher, singer Nitin Mukesh with his wife, Siddharth Kak and his wife Geeta Siddharth  Yash Chopra’s brother BR Chopra’s two grandsons Abhay and Kapil were also present.

BR Chopra’s son Ravi Chopra is unwell and therefore he did not turn up for the dinner party. Rani played a perfect host to the guests. She personally looked after the invitees. Says an invitee, “It was a very warm, pleasant and sober evening. Adi made an effort to be sociable with all the guests. Rani and Adi looked extremely happy together. Rani looked after every guest personally.”
