Revealed! Facts about Aditya Chopra's first wife Payal Khanna

For people who don't know who is Aditya Chopra's first wife, here's a blast from the past-

Payal Khanna is the first wife of Indian movie director, producer and chairman of Yash Raj Films, Mr Aditya Chopra popularly known as Adi. Payal was Aditya's high school girlfriend and married him in 2001, in a private ceremony attended by only some close friends and family members of Aditya. Interestingly, Payal, who studied with Aditya in Bombay Scottish School went onto to do a course in interior designing from London and it was she, who designed the famous Yash Raj Studios. Payal comes from a business family and she too prefers to stay away from the glam world. Payal is considered as a very private and career oriented person. Payal's family is an old friend of Chopra's family and Adi's mother Pamela and Payal's mother have been best friends for many years. However the couple filed for divorce in 2009. After their marriage Adi became friends with Rani Mukerji a famous bollywood actress. It is said that Rani is the reason of divorce between Payal and Adi. Though Rani and Aditya maintained dignified silence about their relationship, the duo couple of times clicked at the airport returning from a vacation. Now her ex-husband Aditya Chopra has married Bollywood actress Rani Mukerji in a private ceremony at Italy on April 21, 2014.

The divorce settlement became the talking point a few years back, when rumours started suggesting that Payal demanded a hefty amount as alimony to end their marriage. While there's no clarity about the amount of money Payal pocketed post the settlement, industry insiders are pretty sure that the amount was more than what one can imagine, some even say that she got a palatial house in Juhu as part of alimony, but then, it was the price Aditya gave for his freedom.
