Rani Mukherjee and Aditya Chopra

Mumbai: 19. jun. 2007. It's been only two months since the Abhishek Bachchan-Aishwarya Rai wedding, and now comes news of another Bollywood leading lady who will soon be tying the knot. 

Industry insiders are saying that Rani Mukherjee is engaged to be married to producer-director Aditya Chopra, son of veteran filmmaker Yash Chopra.

Sources say that the couple got engaged in a quiet ceremony at Chopra's Juhu bungalow, attended by close friends and family. No date has been set for the wedding, since Aditya is in the middle of a divorce from his estranged wife Payal Khanna.

The rumour mills say that Aditya's family is unhappy about Aditya's decision. Tabloids also say that Yash Chopra has threatened to disinherit Aditya from the Rs 1,000 crore Yash Raj Film empire if he does marry Rani.

It's believed that Aditya and Rani have been seeing each other for two years, and that Aditya took to Rani after working with her on his home production Saathiya. He subsequenetly cast Rani in many films produced under the Yash Raj banner, including Mujhse Dosti Karoge, Hum Tum, Veer-Zaara, Bunty Aur Babli, Tara Rum Pum and the forthcoming Laaga Chunari Mein Daag. 

Rani has reduced her workload in the last one year. The 29-year-old actress is currently working on only three films. Rani Mukerji (formerly Rani Mukherjee) comes from a film-oriented family of Bengali origin. Her father Ram Mukherjee is a retired director and one of the founders of Filmalaya Studios. Her mother Krishna was a playback singer. Her brother Raja Mukherjee is a film producer, now turned director. Her maternal aunt, Debashree Roy, was a Bengali-film actress and her cousin Kajol is a Bollywood actress.

The couple has never been spotted together. In fact, Aditya Chopra is known to be a recluse. He has given only one print interview in his life, and has never appeared on television. Aditya is the mastermind behind transforming Yash Raj studios from a modest film company into Bollywood’s biggest film conglomerate.

Old Story...........
Aditya Chopra to leave his wife and home for Rani Mukherjee. Shocked??? Read on for more on this unbelievably true saga.

Adi Chopra and Rani have reportedly been involved for a little over a year now, from the time Veer Zaara was on the floors. And yes, it now seems like the Abhishek-Rani link up was just hogwash to cover up on the true story behind closed doors. Things have not been all hunky dory ever since Adi broke the news at home. Apparently Adi’s wife and childhood girlfriend Payal has been extremely close to the family and her entire life revolves round her husband. On the other hand it seems Rani is worried if Adi will actually be able to go through with the separation as he might get
emotionally blackmailed into continuing with his marriage. As per sources Rani also relies on Adi for professional and personal guidance in her life and rarely takes a decision without consulting him.

Well it seems like Adi has quite a love story at his hands, but this usually happens when reel life changes into real life, you lose some you win some.
