IndiaNewsNetwork.IN Bureau | 1st Sept 2015: The famously tight-lipped Rani Mukerji probably won’t confirm pregnancy rumours until after the stork has visited and she has delivered the baby, but her sister-in-law Jyoti Mukerji appears to have done the job for her, telling Mumbai Mirror that the actress is indeed expecting her first child with husband Aditya Chopra.
TV actress Jyoti Mukerji, who is married to Rani’s brother Raja, told Mumbai Mirror, “Yes, Rani is pregnant.”
The article also claims that Rani, 37, is in her second trimester and that the baby is due in January.
Mumbai Mirror also says that Rani and Aditya are currently abroad, quoting a source as saying. “They returned to India last week after travelling in the UK for over a month but have taken off again, no one knows where.”
Rani is believed to have been spotted having a pre-natal massage while in London.
Rani married Aditya Chopra in Italy last April. The report states that she is expecting her child in January 2016, and also adds that she is currently travelling with Chopra and was also spotted by a fan in London getting a pre-natal spa massage.
Rani had said in an interview in July this year, she saw herself doing “kick-ass films” and having “lovely babies beside me as I go to the set” in five years.
She also added that she was not interested in doing the roles she did earlier in her career, “It’s embarrassing for a 37-year-old to do the roles she did in her twenties,”said Rani to India Today, “I’m not delusional. I’m conscious of what the audience wants to see me in.”
Rani Mukherjee’s last film was Pradeep Sarkar’s Mardaani, which hit the theaters in August 2014.
