Rani Mukerji lost her father yesterday morning. Although not much has been revealed about the cause of death but from what we hear, he passed away in sleep around 4 am today. It’s unfortunate that his demise has hit the family right after the grand Diwali celebrations that took place at the Chopra mansion, a couple of days back. Hubby Aditya Chopra has just arrived at Rani’s residence along with Aamir Khan, Ranveer Singh, to pay their last respect. Many other Bollywood celebrities too are expected to attend the funeral. Our deepest condolences to the entire family.
For all the uninitiated, Rani’s father was a famous screen writer, director and producer in Hindi and Bengali cinema. He is one of the founders of the famous Filmalaya Studios situated in the Mumbai city. Speaking of which, he had also launched Rani in a Bengali romantic comedy film titled Biyer Phool alongside Prosenjit Chatterjee in the year 1996. He also went on to produce her Bollywood debut film Raja Ki Aayegi Baraat in 1997.
