Rani Mukerji is reported to have had cancelled all her appointments at the weekend when she heard Yash Chopra was unwell and in hospital.
Mukerji who is very close to the legendary filmmaker apparently cancelled the film promotions of her latest release ‘Aiyyaa’ to be at the bedside of Chopra.
A friend of the actress told Times Of India, “Rani cancelled all media events and visits to theatres monitoring audiences’ reaction to Aiyyaa. She spent most of Saturday and Sunday in Lilavati hospital by Mrs Pam Chopra, Aditya and Uday Chopra’s side.”
She added, “Rani knows what it’s like to see your father ill in hospital. She has been through it herself. In her perception there was little difference between her own father and Yash Chopra’s hospitalisation.”
Mukerji’s father suffers from a heart condition and has been hospitalised on a number of occasions and hence the actress wanted to take charge. She had been asked to keep the news of the hospitalisation under wraps.
