After years of secret meetings, avoiding media questions over their affair and remaining elusive about their relationship, Bollywood’s so called mysterious couple – Rani Mukherjee and Aditya Chopra finally walked the aisles. Though Rani has always dreamt of fairy tale weddings, it was far from it. Both secretly tied knot in Italy.
In a statement issued to media, Rani Mukerji was quoted as 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,” it further added.
Welcoming is sister-in-law to the family, actor Uday Chopra tweeted, “We welcome Rani Chopra to the family….lots of love to the newly weds.”
The couple was earlier scheduled to get married in February this year at Umaid Bhawan in Udaipur. However, the wedding got postponed due to Rani’s work commitments.
Rani and Aditya have always remained tightlipped about their relationship and have been rarely spotted together on cam. One such occasion was Diwali 2013, where Rani Mukerji along with her entire family was seen celebrating Diwali with the Chopras at their Mumbai residence.

Aditya Chopra was earlier married to Payal Khanna, which according to reports was one of the reasons why Aditya’s mother Pamela did not give her consent to the relationship. But reports suggest that after Yash Chopra’s death, Rani grew close to Pamela and this when she gave a nod to Rani and Aditya’s relationship.
At Yash Chopra’s funeral in 2012, Rani Mukherji was seen taking care of all the arrangements. At an opening of a clinic in Mumbai in 2013, we also spotted a rock on Rani’s ring finger, which was assumed to be her engagement ring.
Last year at the unveiling of Yash Chopra’s statue, Rani Mukherji was in tears.
In January 2012, the couple was spotted together at Mumbai airport returning from one of their trip abroad.
