Rani Mukherjee not engaged to Aditya Chopra
Rumours were rife on Tuesday about the engagement of producer-director Aditya Chopra to actress Rani Mukherjee.
According to industry sources, the two got engaged on Monday with only close friends attending the engagement. Rani reportedly wore an outfit designed by designer Pallavi Jaikishen.
However, while Rani and Aditya were not available for comment, Yash Raj Films spokesperson Monika Bhattacharya denied any such event. “It is not true,’’ she said.
Actor Anupam Kher, who was supposed to be on the guest list of the engagement, also rubbished the rumour.
Aditya, who got married to Payal Malhotra in 2001, filed for divorce early this year. However, his family was not happy with the separation which even led to reports of a showdown between Yash Chopra and his son.
Yash Raj Films denied these reports as well, saying the father-son duo shared a cordial relationship.
