So it’s official. Priyanka Chopra’s brother Siddharth Chopra's engagement has gone kaput again, for the second time. The wedding has been called off and it was confirmed by none other than Priyanka’s mother Madhu Chopra. Hindustan Times reports that Priyanka Chopra’s to be sister-in-law Ishita Kumar has deleted every wedding-related picture from her Instagram account, after it was rumoured that her wedding to Siddharth had been called off. Priyanka had recently come to India for the celebrations, which were supposed to have taken place at the end of April. Her cousin Parineeti Chopra, too, joined the family in Mumbai. But the actors flew back without any vows having been exchanged between Siddharth and Ishita.
Earlier, it was reported that the bride-to-be had undergone an emergency surgery just days before the wedding, which was thought to be the reason for the postponement. But there were doubts raised right from the beginning. HT also confirms that Ishita had earlier deleted pictures from her and Siddharth’s roka ceremony and had shared fresh pictures of herself, hinting at ‘new beginnings and beautiful endings’. According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, Ishita has now deleted her solo pictures from the roka ceremony as well as the bridal shower that took place in London.
Siddharth Chopra was in a relationship with another lady named Kanika Mathur. After getting engaged in an intimate roka ceremony in October 2014, Siddharth and Kanika were speculated to marry in February 2015 in Goa, and the preparations had also begun in full swing, according to a report in BollywoodShaadi.com. In fact, Priyanka Chopra herself was taking a personal interest in the wedding preparations, ensuring everything was perfect. But soon enough, Siddharth and Kanika's relationship went kaput.
BollywoodShaadi.com also reports that while sharing an update about the same on his Facebook page in December 2014, Siddharth had written, "Wedding plans. Early Morning flight to Goa." However, a few weeks later, another post from his account, which had left everyone confused said, "Single. Ready to mingle. Go Goa Gone. Wish everyone a very happy 2015."
Meanwhile, Ishita has received support from her parents and friends. In a reply to her Instagram post, one girl had written, ‘I think he was shit. You deserve better than him any day. You are strong and you will rise as you know how to live.’
Hope Siddharth will be third time lucky.
