Mumbai: The reason for the cancellation of the wedding of Siddharth, the brother of Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra, with Ishita Kumar is out. Priyanka and Siddharth’s mother Madhu Chopra has confirmed that the wedding of Siddhartha Chopra and Ishita Kumar was called off with mutual consent.
Madhu Chopra told news website Spotboy that this happened because Siddharth was not yet ready for marriage. She said, “My son Siddharth told me he was not ready for marriage yet. He said that he needed more time.”
Madhu Chopra refused to give further information regarding this. Sources told Spotboy that, prior to the announcement that the wedding has been called off, the two sides were working on postponing the date.
Last week, there were reports in a section of the web media that the wedding was not happening because of Ishita Kumar’s emergency surgery. But the surgery did not turn out to be the reason for calling the proposed marriage off.
Some reports had claimed that the two families were looking for a new auspicious time for the marriage while some have attributed the delay to Ishita’s surgery. Ishita had shared some pictures of her while she was admitted to a hospital.
On Saturday, when the rumour mills shut up, news website Pinkvilla said, “They (Siddharth and Ishita) refused to marry.”
In the meantime, Ishita Kumar has removed pictures of the roka ceremony that happened in February this year from her Instagram photos. Her posts proclaim Ishita is heralding a “New Beginning” after a “Beautiful End”.
This is not the first glitch for Siddharth. In October 2014, his proposed marriage with the then girlfriend, which was supposed to happen in February 2015, was called off.
Priyanka Chopra’s film The Sky Is Pink is going to be released soon. Along with Priyanka, Farhan Akhtar and Zahira Wasim will be seen in the film. Priyanka Chopra is also producing the film with Siddharth Kapoor and Sonali Bose. Priyanka will soon be seen in other projects as well.
