Report is doing all the rounds that highly cherished couple Aditya Chopra and Rani Mukherjee will exchange wedding vows on 14th February, on the occasion of Valentine’s Day. The wedding venue is Umaid Palace in Jodhpur and Rani recently visited the palace to check the last every detail.   For quite sometime, Rani Mukherjee and Aditya Chopra’s wedding was doing all the rounds.

“Adi and Rani will get married at Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur on Valentine’s Day. Preparations for the wedding are on in full swing and it is going to be a private but nevertheless, a big fat wedding,” adds the source.

The wedding will take place in both Bengali and Punjabi style.

Ace designer Manish Malhotra will design the wedding outfit of Rani. A source was quoted saying, "They're an extremely religious family and Rani's parents won't let her get married in the sly. They have dreamt of a wedding complete with rituals, and that would happen anytime early next year. Officially, the families are yet to declare a date but it might be during the end of winter."

Rani celebrated last diwali with Aditya and her would be mother-in-law Pamela Chopra at Aditya’s place. Rani’s mother and her entire family celebrated diwali at Aditya’s bungalow.

For a long time, there has been a hush-hush about the upcoming wedding but nothing was confirmed. It was also reported that the couple was supposed to marry early 2013 but due to the death of Yash Chopra the plan pushed behind.

"Rani will get married in grand filmi style to Aditya Chopra in Febuary, 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," an insider said once.

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.

This will be Rani’s first marriage and Aditya’s second. Aditya Chopra was earlier married to his childhood friend Payal but they got divorced.
