Deepika, Ranveer leave India for their destination wedding


With only a few days left to the wedding , Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh were spotted at the Mumbai airport, early on Saturday morning, as they reportedly leave for their wedding in Italy, expected to take place on November 14 and 15.

Pictures and videos of the beaming couple were circulated on social media. Both Ranveer and Deepika were looking absolutely beautiful in white outfits.

According to reports, Deepika and Ranveer will tie the knot in the scenic Italian town of Como, by the side of its famous lake which also goes by the same name. The duo has reportedly booked the iconic Villa del Balbianello for the occasion. The marriage ceremonies will have only family members and close friends including Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Arjun Kapoor and Karan Johar in attendance.

Sources shared that the wedding ceremony will take place in the south Indian tradition as well as in the north Indian way. The four-day affair will begin with a sangeet function on November 13, followed by a Kannadiga style wedding on November 14 and a North Indian style function on November 15. A wedding party will also be thrown on November 15 while a grand Mumbai reception will take place on December 1 at the Grand Hyatt.

The source said, “Since Deepika is a south Indian and Ranveer is of Sindhi-Punjabi origin, the two families decided to follow customs practised by both communities. A south Indian wedding has been planned for November 14, complete with Kannadiga rituals. The next day will see the couple solemnise their relationship as per the customs of a north Indian wedding (Anand Karaj).”

Ranveer and Deepika’s pre-wedding functions were held in Mumbai and Bengaluru respectively. While Ranveer’s family had a private haldi ceremony on November 4, Deepika’s family held a puja in Bengaluru.
