Aditya Chopra and Rani Mukerji: Ready to wed?

For a long time, rumourmongers were busy wondering are they together or are they not. Till January 2012, when Aditya Chopra and Rani Mukerji returned to Mumbai from a holiday abroad and tacitly agreed to be photographed together at the airport. The otherwise camera-shy Adi – who hadn’t been captured on film in the 17 years since Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge released – was suddenly nonchalant about it. It seems the two will make their relationship official soon.

A leading daily has reported that Rani celebrated her birthday (March 21) in London where Adi is currently busy with his father’s comeback directorial venture (the same one that’s NOT titled London Ishq!) The two spent some quality time together and even visited the film’s sets. That’s a huge step as the buzz was that Yash Chopra wasn’t too keen about the relationship. The fact that the two were on the sets together shows that the senior Chopra might just be mellowing a la Babuji (Amrish Puri) in DDLJ. If he is agreeable, there is nothing stopping Aditya and Rani from admitting to their relationship in public. Now the only thing left for them to overcome is Rani’s new film. She has agreed to do a film with Tigmanshu Dhulia that will start shooting by the end of the year. It that materialises, then the two lovebirds will have to push their wedding plans forward. Let’s see what they decide!
