Early Life And Education
Aditya Chopra is the eldest son of known filmmaker Yash Chopra and was born on 21 May 1971. As a child, Aditya was very shy and preferred to keep to himself and developed a keen interest in watching films and writing stories. Aditya Chopra was also known as an avid dancer among his select group of friends and would often try to outshine others during his childhood days.
Aditya started his film-making career at the age of 18 as an assistant director, working with his father for films like Chandni, Lamhe and Darr. Aditya, after gaining a respectable amount of experience, started independently at the age of 23, with the all-time blockbuster Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge, for which he was the director and writer.
Aditya Chopra married his high school girlfriend, Payal Khanna, at the age of 30, in a private ceremony attended by a few of the couple’s close friends. The couple, however, filed for divorce, on 20 April 2009, after 8 years of marriage for reasons best known to the couple. Rumours circulating around the media claim that the couple separated because of Aditya Chopra’s addiction to bring the Yash Raj dynasty to greater heights and thus leaving no room for a relationship to prosper between the two.
