Madhu Chopra has confirmed that her son Siddharth Chopra and Ishita Kumar have mutually called off their wedding, she said while speaking to an entertainment portal. Siddharth and Ishita’s roka was held in New Delhi in February while his sister, actress Priyanka Chopra was in Mumbai in April for their wedding.
While several quarters insisted at that point of time that their wedding was called off, sources told a leading daily that it was postponed since Ishita had to undergo an “emergency surgery”. Turns out that initial reports were true as Madhu Chopra told the portal, "They (Siddharth and Ishita) have mutually called it off."
Madhu Chopra, however, refrained from sharing further details. Reports of Siddharth and Ishita’s wedding being called off gathered momentum after Ishita posted a picture of herself at a restaurant with the caption: "Cheers to new beginnings. With a goodbye kiss to beautiful endings."
Her parents' comments on the image added fuel to the speculations. Ishita's mother Nidhi Kumar wrote: "Close old book and write", whereas her father wrote: "We are with you; Feel the expanse of the universe and be the star you were born to be."
Ishita had even shared pictures of her bridal shower last month, but has now taken them off her Instagram page.
However, it is true that Ishita underwent a surgery as this picture on her Instagram page served as proof:
Priyanka, in fact, had also shared pictures from Siddharth’s roka and congratulated them on Instagram:
Priyanka Chopra and her husband, American singer Nick Jonas had attended Siddharth’s roka in February.
