Ending years of speculation, Bollywood actress Rani Mukherji and leading film producer Aditya Chopra, the head of Yash Raj Films, got married in Italy on Monday night, the production company announced today.
"We are happy to announce that Mr. Aditya Chopra and Ms. Rani Mukherji got married last night on 21st April in Italy. The wedding was a very small intimate affair with very close family and friends," said a press release from Yash Raj Films.
Rumours about Rani, star of films like “Black”, “Kuch Kuch Hota Hai' and “No One Killed Jessica”, and Aditya Chopra, 42, had started swirling way back in 2008. And the two tying the knot came as a surprise to many in Bollywood. Chopra is divorced.
Chopra has directed Bollywood blockbusters like “Dilwaley Dulhaniya Le Jayyengey”, “Mohabbatein” and “Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi”.
Bollywood trade analysts Taran Adarsh tweeted Rani Mukherji's statement: "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”.
