Wedding is not just about two people decking up like never before, she making her bridal entry with a romantic number and he waiting with star-studded eyes looking intently at the most beautiful girl on this planet, all ready to have the most of the day. It is about love, care, compassion, sharing responsibilities, trust and living a life of happiness and laughter. But what if things were fine and all set for your wedding, but suddenly life takes a steep turn and you end up cancelling your wedding, a few days prior to your ‘big day’? Well, something similar happened with international sensation, Priyanka Chopra Jonas’ brother, Siddharth Chopra and his now estranged fiancée, Ishita Kumar.

While everything was in place for Siddharth Chopra and Ishita Kumar’s wedding, looks like destiny has some other plans for the now estranged couple. It was on May 03, 2019, when we all were surprised when Ishita Kumar had deleted all her lovey-dovey pictures with Siddharth Chopra, with the latter and Priyanka Chopra Jonas, unfollowing Ishita from their Instagram handles. Ishita had even deleted her Instagram account for some time, which she had later recovered. While we were already speculating a possible wedding cancellation, bang came Ishita’s post which had served as a much-needed answer to all speculations.
Ishita Kumar had taken to Instagram and posting an all-happy picture of herself, sipping a drink, wrote, “Cheers to new beginnings. With a goodbye kiss to beautiful endings.” While this cryptic caption had provided all possible evidences about their cancelled wedding, Ishita’s parents’ comments on her post definitely added to the fire. While her mom wrote, “Close old book and write”, her dad reacted, “We are with you; Feel the expanse of the universe and be the star you were born to be.” Here is the screenshot of the same:
While we all have been yearning to see what the Chopra family has to say about the wedding, Siddharth Chopra’s mommy, Dr Madhu Chopra who had finally confirmed that their wedding stands cancelled, has now cited the real reason behind it in an interview with SpotBoyE. The star mommy shared, “My son Siddharth said he was not ready for marriage yet. He explained he needed more time." Another source close to the family has shared with the same portal, “This arranged marriage was being pushed a bit in haste.” Earlier, confirming Siddharth and Ishita’s cancelled wedding, Madhu ji had shared with Pinkvilla, “The wedding had been mutually called off.” (Also Read: Sussanne Khan Recalls The Time When She First Met Ex-Husband, Hrithik Roshan Back In The 90's)
It was on May 02, 2019, when the Bombay Times had contacted Madhu Chopra for details about the ‘postponed/cancelled’ wedding, after the then bride-to-be Ishita Kumar had posted pictures of herself from a hospital bed a few days before their rumoured wedding. Sharing pictures of blood bottles and bandages on her tummy, Ishita had written, “Recovering from surgery. Very painful but glad it's over.” The star mommy had shared with the portal, “We are disappointed but what can you do when a person is unwell? We wish Ishita a speedy recovery.”
It was on February 2019, hardly two months after Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Nick Jonas’ wedding, came about the first-ever pictures from her little brother, Siddharth Chopra’s roka ceremony. Priyanka had shared a heartfelt post, congratulating Siddharth Chopra and his ‘then’ soon-to-be-missus, Ishita Kumar on their roka. Sharing a picture of the then just-rokafied couple, PeeCee had written, “So proud of my baby brother. Ishita welcome to the family...you are so beautiful together...I wish you both the best for the future! Happy Roka!! @ishittaakumar @siddharthchopra89.”
For the uninitiated, this is the second time when Siddharth Chopra’s wedding has been called off. Prior to getting rokafied to 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. But soon enough, Siddharth and Kanika's relationship went kaput and a source close to the family had then revealed, “Siddharth wants to concentrate on his career and his new venture (a pub-lounge in Pune). Pushing it ahead was a big decision for both the families. Priyanka is also not in the country at the moment and the wedding cannot take place without her."

After dating each other for 3 years, Kanika Mathur and Siddharth Chopra had decided to settle down. 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 had said, "Single. Ready to mingle. Go Goa Gone. Wish everyone a very happy 2015."
We hope Siddharth Chopra finds his one true love, just like his star sister, Priyanka Chopra Jonas (and so does Ishita Kumar)!
