Prior to dating Ishita Kumar, 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. Reports also had it, that Siddharth's superstar sister, Priyanka Chopra herself was taking a personal interest in the wedding preparations, ensuring everything to be perfect.
After dating each other for 3 years, Kanika and Siddharth had decided to settle down. Apparently, the now ex-couple were to tie the knot in Goa and Siddharth had also gone to oversee the wedding preparations. 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." But looks like all’s well that ends well!
Speaking about the sibling relationship that she and Siddharth Chopra share, Priyanka Chopra Jonas had stated in a throwback interview with the Hindustan Times, “We have grown up squabbling and fighting as most siblings do. He is the younger one technically, and so, I did my duty as the older sibling and bullied him mercilessly. But no matter what I did, he would be there for me, with a smile on his face and love in his eyes. I think the strength of the bond that we share is tremendous. A lot is unsaid between us, but we know that no matter what, we’ll always be there for each other. We used to do a lot of masti (fun). I was the ‘general in command’, and Siddharth was my willing sidekick.”
Further recalling their growing-up phase, Priyanka Chopra Jonas had revealed, “I bullied him a lot, but I made sure he knew that no matter what, I would always have his back. He had the freedom to be himself, because I was there to protect him.” (Must Read: Kareena And Karisma With Kids, Samaira, Kiaan And Taimur Jet Off To Celebrate Babita's 72nd Birthday)
