We're a couple of hours away from the biggest wedding of 2018, as Bollywood's favourite couple Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone are all set to get hitched at the Villa del Balbianello, Lake Como, Italy.
The two lovebirds had left on Saturday (November 10) for Italy. They exchanged rings after a Phool Muddi ceremony (a Konkani tradition) yesterday. Ranveer and Deepika will have two wedding ceremonies, one Sindhi, and the other Konkani style.
Ranveer and Deepika's love story is nothing less than a fairy tale. Their romance bloomed on the sets of their first film together Goliyon Ke Rasleela Ram Leela (2013). Their magnetic chemistry was so powerful that their fans couldn't help but feel weak in the knees, just watching them on screen.
"We knew they were kind of a thing, but Ang Laga De (song from Ram Leela) confirmed it. That kiss was so intensely passionate, nobody uttered a word. I still can't forget that sight. It was new love, euphoric and maddening," said a crew member in a recent interview.
Ranveer and Deepika made no effort to hide their flourishing romance from crew members. "They'd call each other baby, eat together and disappear into their vanity vans when not shooting, it was adorable," the member added.
In 2015, Ranveer and Deepika set the screens on fire with Bajirao Mastani. By this time, it was clear that the two were dating, even though they had not publicly admitted to it.
"When I saw them during Baijrao Mastani, that's when I knew that it was going to last. It's their body language, the way they talk and about each other, and a general sign that's a telling sign," said Baijrao Mastani crew member.
Another source, who hung out with the couple, said that the two would have eyes only for each other.
Ranveer and Deepika's relationship went from strength to strength over the past six years. Their fans were elated when they announced their upcoming nuptials on Twitter on October 21.
Their grand Lake Como wedding will be a close-knit affair, with only close friends and family members in attendance. Only a select few from the film fraternity have been invited, including Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Farah Khan.
Once they return to the country, Ranveer and Deepika will host two lavish receptions. One will be in Bengalaru at the Leela for Padukone's friends on November 21, and the other will be on November 28, for their friends from the Bollywood fraternity.
