According to an article in Filmfare, the Padmaavat (2018) co-stars will tie the knot in Lake Como on 20 November this year.
Ranveer and Deepika to follow Anushka-Virat by marrying in Italy?
Mumbai - 14 Aug 2018 16:01 IST
Last December there was a famous Indian wedding in Italy when actress Anushka Sharma tied the knot with India cricket captain Virat Kohli.
This year again the Mediterranean country is likely to witness another famous Indian wedding, with film stars Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone reportedly set to enter into wedlock.
According to an article in Filmfare magazine, the Padmaavat couple will get married in Italy on 20 November in Lake Como.
The magazine quoted a source close to Padukone as saying, “It’s a very special day for Ranveer and Deepika, which is why they just want the close ones to be present for their wedding ceremony. Mostly it will be their families and a few close friends."
According to the source, the guests will number just 30 people.
Italy has been a favourite holiday destination of both Ranveer Singh and Padukone. "They look forward to hosting grand receptions once they are back in India,” the source added.
So far there has been no word on the subject from the couple in question. Rumour of a Ranveer-Deepika marriage has been doing the rounds for the past few years, but it has gained steam in the past few months.
Padukone was to begin work on a Vishal Bhardwaj film this year after Padmaavat, but the shooting of the film was postponed after co-star Irrfan Khan was diagnosed with a tumour and needed to take a break to undergo treatment in London.
Padukone has been linked with a Sanjay Leela Bhansali film, reportedly titled Inshallah, that stars Salman Khan. Khan had earlier admitted having been offered a script by Bhansali.
As for Ranveer Singh, he is currently filming for Rohit Shetty’s Simmba. He is expected to finish that work in a couple of months. Then he will be on a break towards the yearend and begin filming for Kabir Khan’s 83 in early 2019.
The couple has been dating since they worked together in Bhansali’s Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-leela (2013).
While there is no official confirmation, there is no dearth of good wishes for the couple. Veteran actor Kabir Khan wasted no time in wishing them.
If Ranveer Singh and Padukone do tie the knot in Italy, it will be the third destination wedding by Indian celebrities in Italy. Before Kohli and Sharma, producer Aditya Chopra had married actress Rani Mukerji in a quiet ceremony in the Italian countryside.
