Rani and Aditya got married in April 2014 after a whirlwind of a courtship, in a hush-hush marriage ceremony, and unlike other grand Bollywood celebrity weddings, there were only 12 people present.
Rani and Aditya’s relationship had always been an open secret. Even though the two of them chose to keep mum about it, various media sources confirmed their relationship. While some called them a cute couple, others accused Rani of being a home breaker. But, Rani and Aditya never came out to speak about their relationship, thus making the rumour mills run overtime.
However, Rani has finally revealed on the wat she met Aditya Chopra and when they fell in love. She said, "After having faced failure for a couple of my films, luckily Mujhse Dosti Karoge happened and that's when I met Adi first time professionally. He told me that I'm doing a couple of crap films and that people have pressured him not to take me because they think that I didn't have the equity for a Yash Raj film, but Adi had belief in my talent and me and thought that I was good for the part. My mother and I have been very forthright people always and I like frankness and openness, so I like the fact that he was on my face."
Despite being one of the most influential filmmakers in the industry, Aditya Chopra keeps away from the media glare. "It's not as if he is paranoid about the media. He just doesn't want to be photographed. He had told me after our marriage, 'God when I fell in love with you, I didn't stop to think that I was in love with an actress. Because of you, people are attaching my pictures to yours as well,'" explained Rani.
She is all set to return to the big screen after four years, with Siddharth Malhotra's Hichki. In the film, she plays the role of a teacher that has Tourette syndrome. This results in nervous and involountary spasms, and hiccups.
