2018 surely is the year of weddings. It began with Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli’s hush hush wedding late in 2017. Then Sonam Kapoor tied the knot with Anand Ahuja a few months later. Priyanka Chopra, Bollywood’s international celebrity, had a roka ceremony and made things official with Nick Jonas last week. Now, the focus has shifted to another high profile couple – Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone. Rumours are abuzz that the power-duo, who have been dating for the last five years or so, will tie the knot this November. The date is either November 18 or November 20. While sources close to the couple say it’s November 20, others say it could be either or neither. Close friends insist the dates being given out in the media have not come to them.
“The media seems to have information that we don’t. We’ve received no intimation of the wedding date, destination, let alone instructions about not carrying cell phones,” says a young actor who is close to both Ranveer and Deepika. A few media reports had suggested that guests had already been asked not to carry cell phones or capture pictures. Evidently, the couple wants to keep it very, very intimate.
However friends confirm the wedding will happen. Another thing that can be confirmed is that it will be a destination wedding, most likely in Italy. “Towards the end of the year, the wedding will happen. The couple is very sure of one another. If Ranveer had his way the wedding would’ve happened long back. Deepika wanted to take the plunge at the right time when all work commitments were cleared,” says a source.
