Veteran actress Simi Garewal was recently part of the jury of the third National Yash Chopra Memorial Award, which will be presented to Rekha this year. The actress, who always dresses in white, shares a special relationship with the Chopras, which very few know about. Her deep connection with the filmmaker, in fact, renders her a grandmother to the newest member of the Chopra family, baby Adira!
Well, yes, Simi isn’t married herself, but she is Yash Chopra's wife Pamela’s first cousin! Simi's mother Darshi and Pamela's father Mohinder Singh were siblings, reported an article in Mid Day. Incidentally, it was Simi who had introduced Pamela to Yash at a wedding!
So she does get to wear the honoured mantle of a grandmother to Rani Mukerji and Aditya Chopra’s baby daughter, wouldn’t you say?
