After a long time, we can finally, officially say that Rani Mukherjee set to tie the knot with Aditya Chopra and we all know now that a big fat wedding is all set to take place!
According to our sources, the date has been finalised and the duo will be excited to get married in January 2014. The couple was originally set to marry early last year but due to the untimely demise of Yash Chopra, their plan had to be postponed.
“Rani will get married in grand filmi style to Aditya Chopra in January 2014. The couple is finalising the date according to the shubh mahurat decided by Aditya’s mother Pamela in consultation with the family priest,” he said. “According to Punjabi customs, no festivities or celebrations take place for a year after the death of a family member,” he said.
The insider added: “Yashji fell sick during the making of the film (‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’) and the dutiful son (Aditya) took over the reigns. He was in London for the better part of the year, as was Rani. This being a big film as Chopra Sr was returning to the big screen after a long break. He wanted energies to be focused on the film and nothing else, so the wedding was put off till after the release of the film.”
“According to Punjabi customs, no festivities or celebrations take place till after a year of death of a family member. The 365 days following the demise of a close relative is called an impurity period,” the source continued.
We aren’t surprised with the news but the duo really did made us wait for quite a long time. They always maintained their silence on this private matter though they were spotted together several times. But when their families went on a vacation last year, things just got crystal clear.
