The most hilarious thing happened at an event I attended today and I had to tell you guys. So the folks behind the UTV Stars Walk of Fame held an event to unveil the late Yash Chopra‘s statue today, and in attendance were several celebrities, including Shatrughan Sinha and Rani Mukerji. Now, of course, the rumors of Rani being wed to Aditya Chopra have been doing the rounds for quite some time now, but is it possible that Shatrughan inadvertently confirmed them today? Here’s what happened!
When Shatrughan Sinha was asked to say a few words at the event, he decided to speak about the Chopra family and those close to them. He mentioned Pamela Chopra, Uday Chopra, Parineeti Chopra and Rani Mukerji, but somehow missed out Aditya’s name. His wife prompted him to mention Aditya, which Shatrughan brought to the notice of the audience. He then went on to say that since he has just taken “Rani Chopra’s” name, it’s obvious he has to take Adi’s name soon after. The entire audience burst out laughing and Rani was left with a dropped jaw (which she quickly covered up with her hand) and wide eyes.
What’s even more interesting is that later when Pamela was asked to pose with Rani next to the Yash Chopra statue, she refused and insisted on a solo picture. Rani, who had already taken her round of solo pics, left the stage.
What do you think is the deal here? Are the two secretly married and Shatrughan accidentally outed them? Or was it just a casual mistake because he was naming a long line of Chopras?
