They have been an off and on couple for five years now. More off than on, since Nargis a self-confessed gypsy was unable to pin herself down to Bollywood and her relationship with the Chopras.
But now it’s all sorted. Nargis who has been away from Mumbai for many months and had, for all practical purposes, quit Bollywood after her dizzying spell of uncomfortable gyrating with Varun Dhawan in Main Tera Hero and her completely unsuccessful attempt to play theBanjo in Ritesh Deshmukh’s company in director Ravi Jadhav’s film is back in town.
And if sources close to the Chopra family are to be believed, Nargis is all set to become Rani Mukherjee’s sister-in-law.
Says a close family friend of the Chopras, “There is definitely a wedding on the cards.In fact, from what we’ve been told it may happen any time early next year. At least that’s where it stands at the moment.Uday is fully committed to marriage. He wants to make it legal with Nargis for the last two years. But she’s commitment-phobic, both professionally and personally. She keeps running off to her home in New York.But now this time we’re told she’s in Mumbai to make the relationship legal.”
In Nargis’ favour is the fact that Uday Chopra’s mother Mrs Pam Chopra dotes on her future Choti Bahu.
“They get along famously. Neither of Mrs Pam Chopra’s sons would marry a woman their mother doesn’t approve of. Luckily for Aditya and Uday, their mom gets along with Rani and Nargis,” says the family friend.
