Never in living memory have three of Bollywood ’s screen divas tied the knot during the same year. What was it about 2018 that made the year so eminently marriageable?
Sonam Kapoor Weds Anand Ahuja
May 8. What was planned as a small wedding became a BFW(big fat wedding) with almost a week of merry-making in Mumbai? It figures. Can you imagine anything associated with Anil Kapoor being anything but boisterous crowded and rumbustious. The Sonam-Anand marriage was definitely the most colourful event of the year. And probably the most ebullient wedding in decades.
Deepika Padukone Weds Ranveer Singh
November 14. Children’s Day would never be the same again. On 14 November, Deepika and Ranveer finally ended months and years of suspense about their relationship status. Just weeks after the Ambani heiress got engaged at Lake Como, Deepika said ‘I do’ to Ranveer in the scenic wilderness.
Priyanka Chopra Weds Nick Jonas
Unlike the Ranveer-Deepika relationship which grew over a period of time, Priyanka and Nick had a whirlwind courtship. They met at an awards event in LA and decided to spend the rest of their lives together.
It remains to be seen which among the three couples beats the others to parenthood. But the one amazing similarity among the three high-profile Bollywood weddings of 2018 is the exceedingly high volume of devotion that the male spouse showers on his wife. Look at Anand Ahuja, Ranveer Singh and Nick Jonas in any picture with their wives. These are guys madly in love with their beautiful wives. It’s in their eyes. All the three marriages are for keeps.
