Tej Pratap Yadav, former health minister of Bihar, bumping into his would-be-wife Aishwarya Rai at the Patna airport on Sunday (April 8) have been speculated for quite some time on social media. And as was anticipated, photos of the young couple soon went viral on the Internet, with people sharing the pictures (one in particular), on several social media platforms such as Twitter and WhatsApp. It featured Yadav with Rai and her family members.
According to reports, Yadav was travelling back from New Delhi after visiting his father and former Bihar chief minister Lalu Prasad Yadav, who has been undergoing treatment at AIIMS. Rai and her relatives, on the other hand, were at the airport as they were travelling to Delhi to get some shopping done for the upcoming engagement and wedding.

Like Yadav, Rai too hails from a political family and her grandfather Daroga Prasad Rai was also a former chief minister of the state. Her father Chandrika Prasad Rai, a six-time MLA, had served as a minister in many governments headed by the RJD supremo and there is good camaraderie between the two families.
Rai, an MBA graduate from Amity University, was chosen as Yadav’s bride by his mother Rabri Devi. The engagement ceremony is scheduled to take place on April 18 at a hotel in Patna and the marriage is scheduled to take place on May 12 also in Patna.
