Revealed: Reason behind Rani and Aditya’s secret wedding

Rani Mukherjee and Aditya Chopra’s wedding on April 21st in the foreign land did not come as a big shock for the fans rather they are more curious to know why the duo chose for a secret wedding. Rani always says she wants to have a big fat traditional Bengali wedding and would share the good news with all when time comes but we wonder what compelled the couple for a hush-hush wedding away from the country. So here comes the complete revelation behind the secret wedding of the season.  

Three weeks ago, Rani's father Ram Mukherjee, who is fitted with a pacemaker, suddenly collapsed and was hospitalised. The father whose only wish to see his daughter getting married kept repeating, "The only thing I want before anything untoward happens to me is to see my daughter married". And Adi in the true filmy style promised Ram Mukherjee that he would marry his daughter and also seek his blessing. He said Ram that he will witness their wedding through his eyes and give his blessing to them.

On looking at Ram’s deteriorating health, both the families decided Italy to be the wedding venue on Friday and on Saturday night the Mukerjees and the Chopras board a flight to Italy. Krishna, Ram, Raja Mukerjee, Pamela Chopra and Uday Chopra took the same flight. Karan Johar also accompanied them. A priest accompanied joined the bride and groom's families and the wedding took place according to Bengali tradition.

An insider says, "We knew that the marriage was taking place this weekend. Pam cancelled the usual Saturday film screening that she holds at Yash Raj Films (YRF) for the khandaan. No friends or relatives other than the immediate family were alerted about the wedding."

A statement issued by Aditya Chopra’s production house confirmed the news of the wedding, "We are happy to announce that Mr Aditya Chopra and Ms Rani Mukerji got married last night on 21st April in Italy. The wedding was a very small intimate affair with very close family and friends. We wish the couple a very happy married life."

After the wedding, Rani issued a statement saying, "I would like to share the happiest day of my life with all my fans all over the world whose love and blessings have been part of my journey all these years. I know that all my well-wishers who have waited for this day will be really happy for me. It was a beautiful wedding in the Italian countryside with just a few of our close family and friends with us. The one person I missed terribly was Yash uncle, but I know he was there with us in spirit and his love and blessings will always be with Adi and me. I have always believed in fairy tales and with God's grace, my life has been exactly like one, and now, as I enter the most important chapter of my life, the fairy tale continues."

If on one hand, Rani’s family is basking in the joy then on the other hand, Rani's uncle Rono Mukerji is in complete shock as he is not at all aware of his niece’s wedding. "I don't know anything, you are giving me news. How strange it is that an uncle doesn't know about his niece's wedding. I am not keeping well. Even Ram is on a pacemaker; so I don't know if he has gone for the wedding. They haven't informed me," he said.
