Is the Ranveer Singh-Deeepika Padukone marriage really happening at Italy’s Lake Como? Close friends of the couple say the venue is “undecided”.
“I haven’t heard anything about Lake Como, though they are definitely getting married in November-December. From what I gather the wedding is likely to take place in India, either Mumbai or Bengaluru,” says a filmmaker-friend of couple.
At the heart of the wedding-venue debate is the question of how geo-political nationalism. Apparently after Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli came into serious flak for their exotic NRI wedding, Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja changed their mind about a foreign wedding and opted for amchi Mumbai. Earlier Sonam was rumoured to have planned an exotic Switzerland wedding. But the late Sridevi's death as well as the logistical issues in organising such a huge ceremony allegedly led the family to shift the venue entirely to Mumbai.
Says a source in the know, “Italy was discussed by Ranveer and Deepika as a possible venue for their wedding. But it seems they may opt for a desi wedding to avoid being labeled un-Indian or whatever. However the wedding will be lowkey and the invitees restricted to close family and friends of the couple.”
The couple has so far kept mum about their wedding plans. Recently Deepika was asked about it at an event on depression and she didn't take too kindly to it.
