There was a time when Rani Mukerji and Abhishek Bachchan were making headlines due to their relationship. Back in the day, they were too serious about everything, however, soon the couple decided to part ways. There were a lot of rumours around their breakup and many said that it was Jaya Bachchan who didn't like son Abhishek being in a relationship with Rani Mukerji.
Was Jaya Bachchan The Reason?
Abhishek Bachchan and Rani Mukerji became a popular pair after the release of movies like Yuva and Bunty Aur Babli. Their on-screen pairing was loved by the audience. Rani and Abhishek's next movie, Laga Chunari Mein Daag changed their equation.
The movie didn't do well at the box office but that's not all. According to a lot of media reports, it also negatively affected the relationship between the two. Jaya Bachchan and Rani Mukerji had a fight on the sets of the movie. Earlier, Jaya Bachchan had accepted the relationship because Rani was Bengali but after the alleged fight, things changed. When Rani Mukerji's family went to the Bachchan's house to discuss marriage, Jaya Bachchan said a lot of things which were unacceptable to Rani and her family.
Abhishek Bachchan Not Calling Rani On His Wedding
Even though the two had parted ways, knowing the kind of relationship they had, off-screen and on-screen, many thought that they would keep it cordial. However, when Abhishek Bachchan didn't invite Rani to his wedding, it cleared that it had all ended on a bitter note.
Abhishek Bachchan didn't invite Rani to his wedding with Aishwarya Rai. When Rani Mukerji was asked about the same, she said, "Only Abhishek can throw light on that. The truth is that if a person chooses not to invite you to their wedding, you realise where you stand with the person. You may be deluded and think you are friends but maybe the friendship was only restricted to being co-stars on the sets."
She added, "It doesn't matter. It became very clear and evident that we were only co-actors and not friends. Moreover inviting someone to a wedding is a personal choice. Tomorrow when I decide to get married, I will choose the handful of people I want to invite. A lot has been blown out of proportion. Poor guy has been married for many years, we should all move on. I will always have fond memories of working with him."
Abhishek Bachchan On Equation With Rani Mukerji
Abhishek Bachchan in all his interviews stated that he has no problems with Rani. He also shared that she has always been a great friend and co-actor. Abhishek also said that if they get a good script, he would love to work with her.
Rani Mukerji's Equation With Aishwarya Rai
Though Rani Mukerji has always praised Aishwarya Rai and called her a great actor, there have been always rumours that they were never in good terms. One reason behind this was Rani Mukerji replacing Aishwarya Rai in Shahrukh Khan starrer, Chalte Chalte.
Coming back to Rani Mukerji and Abhishek Bachchan, it has always been a treat to watch the duo on-screen with movies like Yuva, Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna, and Bunty Aur Babli among others. We really wish the two work again and share the screen. Last year, there were rumours that the two may come back with Bunty Aur Babli Sequel. Rani Mukerji in her statement shared that both her and Abhishek were approached by YRF for the sequel but things didn't work out for him and that the team will miss him dearly.
