True to her name, Rani Mukerji once ruled Bollywood, and her husband Aditya Chopra, or simply Adi, still rules the industry from behind the screen. They are happily married now and proud parents to baby girl Adira, and after her maternity break Rani went back to the silver screen with the immensely successful Hichki.
The Rani Mukerji -Aditya Chopra love story
For Aditya Chopra, this was his second marriage. The first time he married his childhood sweetheart Payal, but due to differences, they got divorced in 2009. According to the official story, Adi and Rani started dating after his divorce and got married in 2014. But as per the unofficial version of the story, they started their relationship when Aditya was still married to Payal.
Rani was a regular face in Aditya Chopra’s production house and doing a lot of films for them. They were practically living together during that time. Since Payal was the daughter of a close family friend, Aditya’s parents were totally against their divorce. As a consequence, he left home and started living in a hotel to put pressure on his parents. Eventually, his parents accepted his decision and the couple got divorced. However, his father, Yash Chopra, never agreed to him marrying Rani.
Rani and Aditya finally tied the knot
But after his demise, Rani and Adi waited for an appropriate amount of time and finally got married in 2014. They are happily married now, and it’s the only version of the story that is there.
