During the star-studded event of the Yash Chopra statue unveiling that took place yesterday afternoon,during which Shatrughan Sinha was heardreferring toRani Mukerji with the ‘Chopra’ surname, Yash Raj Films issued an emergency statement.
In what can only be described as a very panicky action, the production house’s PR department must have gone on overdrive. The statement read, “While paying his respects to the memory of Mr Yash Chopraduring the unveiling of the statue, he (Shatrughan Sinha) inadvertently made a comment which was completely unintended and a slip of the tongue. We should request you to treat it as such. There is nothing more to it”.
Mukerji is rumoured to be dating the late Chopra’s eldest son, Aditya. However, this blunder by Sinha seems to put nothing short of a spanner in the works because neither one of the alleged couple have openly admitted to their relationship. One wonders whether this obviousunease about the slip of the tongue could suggest that there really ismore to thecomment than meets the eye.
