Rani Mukerji is one lucky girl! Buzz is that beau Aditya Chopra gifted an Audi A8 W12 worth Rs 1.25 crore to his alleged girlfriend as a symbol of their love!
It is said that Aditya brought the luxury car on Tuesday evening near Rani’s bungalow and asked her to step in for a quick ride. Later he parked the car at her place and himself went home in his other car.
Much has been talked about the relationship between the original bubbly girl of Bollywood and the filmmaker but both have till now remained mum about the topic. Last year Rani’s father, Ram had once said publicly that the actress would get married within a year. But when asked Aditya and Rani about the news both maintained their ‘no comments’ stance.
Aditya was previously married to his childhood girlfriend Payal Malhotra. Their 8 year old marriage started showing cracks when rumours about Aditya and Rani’s affair started doing rounds in the industry. Many accused Rani for being the home breaker but people close to Adi said that it was because of the incompatibility between the two that had led to their break up. Aditya then moved out of his parents' house in Juhu to stay at the Grand Maratha Sheraton Hotel. The couple filed for divorce in 2009. A settlement, of Rs 20 crore was fixed for Payal, besides a five-bedroom penthouse in Juhu. Aditya Chopra then returned to his parents’ old villa where he still stays in a separate wing on the first floor.
Mean while, rumours about his affair with Rani were getting stronger. Rani who was at the peak of her stardom back then started working for projects only under Yashraj’s banner. It is said that because of this decision all of her earlier directors no longer rushed to her with scripts. Sooner as a result of being constrained to only one camp Rani’s luck turned the other way. With her films like Baabul, Laga Chunri Main Daag, Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic, Dil Bole Hadippa getting bombed at the box-office Rani Mukerji’s career as a top actress started fading.
She won the accolades for playing the character of Meera, a foul-mouthed television journalist in ‘Noone Killed Jessica’ but by that time more young & talented actresses like Kareena Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra were already reigning the industry.
Rani then kept her career at the back burner due to the lack of film roles and started concentrating on her personal life. It was said that Aditya’s broken marriage and his affair with the actress was also the reason of the rift between her and the Chopra’s. Aditya’s parents had always shown their displeasure towards their son getting divorced and marrying Rani. Months passed by and it was heard that the Chopras who had an objection regarding Rani and Aditya’s wedding finally gave their nod. Considering the developments, it was assumed that Rani would announce her wedding soon.
So the news of Aditya gifting an expensive luxurious car to his lady love made us wonder, are the wedding bells going to ring sooner or later?!
