Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh put an end to months of speculations on 21st October 2018. Both the actors took to their social media handles and posted an announcement wherein they mentioned that they will be getting married on 14th and 15th November.
Since their wedding is all set to take place in the picturesque Lake Como in Italy, the couple has already started with their pre-wedding rituals.
On 2nd November 2018, Deepika kicked off her pre-wedding festivities with a Nandi Puja in her hometown Bengaluru. For the first of her wedding functions, Deepika chose to go with a stunning saffron-coloured Sabyasachi suit.
Deepika’s outfit comprised of a silk bandhgala suit, white pants and an embroidered dupatta. The actress accessorized her outfit with gorgeous statement Sabyasachi jhumkis. Sabysachi Mukherjee is Deepika’s favorite designer and it is very likely that the acclaimed designer has designed Deepika’s entire wedding trousseau.
Deepika’s ‘au-natural glowing makeup’, complete with strong brows, kohl-lined eyes with a brownish hue and nude pink lips completed her look for this ritual.
The Nandi Puja is a ceremony that is performed on both the groom and the bride’s side. The puja is done to ensure that marriage ceremony goes through without any problems and hitches. The puja is performed by a family priest and is celebrated to bless the soon-to-be married couple with a life full of abundance, health, wisdom and longevity. In this ritual, the first wedding invitation is offered to God and the couple seeks blessings from the Almighty as well.
Groom-to-be Ranveer Singh, is busy wrapping up his film ‘Simmba’. Over the weekend, Ranveer had a small haldi ceremony at his home.
Dressed in an off-white kurta with his face smeared with haldi, Ranveer was seen clicking selfies in his balcony. The happiness on Ranveer Singh’s face was enough to tell us how much he was looking forward to starting his new life with Deepika Padukone.
