  • '90s Bollywood songs, filter kaapi for guests at Ranveer-Deepika's Anand Karaj marriage ceremony

    A curated playlist of Bollywood songs from the 1990s also greeted the baraatis

  • Visuals from Lake Como:

  • Colour theme for Anand Karaj nuptials is red

    While the Konkani marriage ceremony saw the bride, groom and the wedding party wear cream and gold outfits, the theme of the Anand Karaj nuptials is predominantly red. Hindustan Time reports that male guests are sporting bright red pagris, while the female guests have been seen in red and pink saris and lehengas.

  • Ranveer-Deepika's first post-wedding portrait expected at 6 pm 

    While fans eagerly await (and media houses fretfully count down to) the moment when Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone will share their first photo as newlyweds, reports indicate that a post-nuptials portrait will only be shared at 6 pm India time.

    Aka space filler #343 for this live blog.

  • Vintage boat ferried Ranveer to wedding venue, say reports. 

    Contrary to speculation that he would arrive in a sea-plane, Singh took a more understated vintage boat ride to reach the venue in time for his Anand Karaj ceremony.

  • Trivia:

    From Wikipedia — 'Anand Karaj' is the Sikh marriage ceremony, meaning blissful or joyful union, introduced by Guru Amar Das. The four 'laavaan' (or hymns sung during the ceremony) were composed by his successor, Guru Ram Das.

  • Another ad inspired by Ranveer-Deepika:

  • Meanwhile: 

  • Sweets sent to media houses, well-wishers by newlyweds

    Entertainment journalists and media portals have received sweets from Deepika and Ranveer's PR teams. Apparently, the boxes contain Mysore Pak and a message from the couple. 

    Full disclosure: We haven't received any.

  • News flash: The bride and groom have reportedly entered the venue, shielded by black umbrellas, while their guests too have taken their places inside the mandap.

  • Throwback post from Deepika's pre-wedding rituals in Mumbai. 

    Mood: Sombre.

  • Deepika and Ranveer to perform Sindhi wedding rituals in rose-covered mandap

    The Bollywood stars are expected to begin the ritual for their Anand Karaj marriage ceremony at any moment now. Times Now reports that the pavilion has been decorated with fresh red roses, and water taxis are ferrying the guests to the venue. 

  • Recap: Deepika walked down the aisle to Shubha Mudgal singing south Indian melodies

    The bride, Deepika Padukone (Bhavnani-Singh- ...), walked up to the altar of her mandap to the tunes of traditional south Indian wedding songs like 'Kanya Aagman' which were sung by veteran singer Shubha Mudgal. 

  • Lowdown on the Sindhi rituals to follow

    According to entertainment portals, during the Sindhi wedding ceremony today, the couple will take part in rituals such as haldi, garo dhaago, baraat, jaimala, palli pallo, hathialo, kanyadaan, phere and saptapadi. We, though, wait for the menu of the lavish Sindhi buffet.

  • Jitesh Pillai feels Deepika-Ranveer's Mumbai reception will be a 'Kumbh Mela'!

    Filmfare editor Jitesh Pillai surely can't wait to join in the wedding revelry. All the little updates from the much-loved couple's wedding festivities in Italy are keeping gossip mills in India buzzing.

  • Rs 1 crore spent on security arrangements at Lake Como?

    While you may have not got CCTV cameras in your society, even after multiple 'resident welfare meetings', Ranveer and Deepika made sure that all the security arrangements were in place in and around Lake Como to ward off gate-crashers and keep the paparazzi at bay (literally!).  

  • #DeepVeerKiShaadi trends in Pakistan

    While the India-Pakistan cricket matches do little to help calm the tension between the two nation, Ranveer and Deepika's wedding has finally given the warring neighbours a shared reason of joy. #DeepVeerKiShaadi was reportedly trending in Pakistan also on Wednesday. After all, 'love conquers all'.

  • Bauua Singh laments losing out on the chance to marry Deepika Padukone

    Bauua Singh (Shahrukh Khan's character in Zero) who has his own official Twitter handle, tweeted this:

  • Exactly five years ago today, Ranveer and Deepika's first film together had released 

    In what some are calling more than just a coincidence, the couple will on 15 November also celebrate five years of the release of 'Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela' — their first project together. Later, the world will know that the blockbuster movie actually formed the starting point of their romance. Intrestingly, the film's director Sanjay Leela Bhansali is often credited for bringing the two stars together and making their jodi a 'hit' by casting them as a couple again in Bajirao Mastani. 

     

  • Will they live happily ever after? Read Paul the Octopus' prediction to find out:

    As media houses sought comments from reputed numerologists, astrologers, tarot card experts, crystal ball-gazers, tea leaf-readers and fortune-telling parrots to predict Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh's chances of marital happiness, a seer par excellence also weighed in on the issue. 

    Paul the Octopus, who found instant fame for his spot-on predictions during the 2010 FIFA World Cup, also sent in his own foretelling of the newlyweds' chances of bliss. 

    "They'll be very happy," Paul predicted, or something very close to it as far as our correspondent could tell from his garbled octopus-like speech. 

    While this certainly bodes well for Deepika and Ranveer, reliable sources would have us believe that the octopus we were speaking with was not in fact Paul — said tentacled prophet having passed away most sadly in 2010 itself, at the tender age of two.

  • In case you are feeling left out having lost out on the invite

    Worry not, the hovering drone cameras of Indian media can beat hawk eyes anyday. The 'paps' have ensured you get all the leaks 'first and exclusive' served into your bedrooms at prime-time. Because, gossip with dinner anyone?

  • A timeline of the filmy love story

    Love which blossomed on the sets of Ram-Leela, has culminated into marital bliss after six years of (quite a low-key) courtship. Phew, that was solid guys.

  • Farah Khan gifts the couple handmade hands (well yes)

    Bollywood (and Deepika's debut) director Farah Khan gifted the young couple a cast of their hands (held together). She had called casting artist Bhavna Jasra at her residence when the couple went to her place to invite her to their wedding. 

  • ..... and more wishes

    Major congratulations are due for Bollywood's Ram-Leela, Bajirao-Mastani.

  • Bollywood wishes and blesses the couple

    Even though they weren't invited to the 'close and private' affair in Italy, Bollywood stars wished Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh a 'happy married life' on Twitter, Instagram (BB messengers) etc. 

  • Memes galore on the #WeddingOfTheYear

    Fans, who are clearly losing their patience waiting for 'clear' pictures of the bride and groom to emerge, have taken to social media to share memes and the pain with fellow members of the #DeepVeer army. 

  • It's Ladkiwale vs Ladkewale!

    Deepika's sister Anisha Padukone updated her social media usernames to #Ladkiwale with a bride emoji to tell the world she will indeed ask for money from Ranveer during the 'joote churai' ceremony. 

  • Couple's Wikipedia profiles get updated

    It ain't official till it's updated on Wikipedia, said every social media user ever. And thus, it should come as a pleasant surprise to both Ranveer and Deepika's fans that their profiles have indeed been updated in the spouse column and now they 'officially' each other's companions for life. Woohoo.

  • Spot the bride and groom: Leaked pictures from wedding ceremony keep the fans guessing

    While you may have played the spot the difference game many times on your computer or in weekend editions of newspapers, here is a new game for you to chew your brains on. Challenge your friends (and family, if you wish) to correctly guess who the bride and groom are in the below picture. Thank us later. 

  • Watch: Couple walk out from the wedding venue like undercover agents

    With the Indian paparazzi hounding them even on Italy's lakes, the poor couple had to hide beneath umbrellas to maintain their privacy. Watch this video to see how they were sheepishly escorted from the wedding venue. Sigh, celebrity life ain't easy guys!

  • Amul wishes the couple in its signature style

    Amul, keeping true to its quirky ad ideas, wished the famous couple with the tagline 'The Deepik-tion of taste!' and captioned it 'Ranveer not Singhle anymore!'

    #Amul Topical: Bollywood superstars tie the knot!

    A post shared by Amul (GCMMF) (@amul_india) on

Deepika Padukone Ranveer Singh wedding LATEST updates: Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh have completed their Anand Karaj marriage ceremony by taking the pheras and exchanging vows. They have also released their first official portraits — one each from their Konkani and Sindhi wedding ceremonies. Wishes poured in from their Bollywood peers in response.

During the Sindhi wedding ceremony today, the couple partook in rituals such as haldigaro dhaagobaraatjaimalapalli pallohathialokanyadaanphere and saptapadi.

In what some are calling more than just a coincidence, the couple will on 15 November also celebrate five years of the release of Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela — their first project together. Later, the world will know that the blockbuster movie actually formed the starting point of their romance. Interestingly, Sanjay Leela Bhansali is often credited for bringing the two stars together and making their jodi a 'hit' by casting them as a couple again in Bajirao-Mastani.

Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh will round-off their wedding celebrations today with a traditional Anand Karaj ceremony in Italy's Villa del Balbianello. The couple is expected to wear outfits designed by Sabyasachi for the occasion.

Deepika Padukone on Wednesday tied the knot as per Konkani traditions in a dreamy Lake Como setting in Italy amidst a tight circle of family and friends, culminating a six-year-long love story in a 'happily ever after'. The ceremony began at 8 am on Wednesday, and ended around 1.30 pm as per local time in Italy, those in the know of developments told IANS.

Deepika wore a cream and gold lehenga, and Ranveer was dressed in white, with most guests dressed in pastels, keeping with the subtle and classy vibe of the upscale wedding venue. Northern Italy's Lombardy region, a resort area known for its spectacular scenery, served as the perfect backdrop for Deepika and Ranveer's wedding.

While fans and the media yearned for pictures from the wedding celebrations on social media, only a few wide angle shots of the venue gave a hint of the elaborate set-up, decorated with the choicest of flowers. The Konkani style wedding will be followed by a traditional Anand Karaj ceremony on Thursday. Deepika, 32, daughter of badminton ace Prakash Padukone, is likely to wear a Sabyasachi ensemble for the Anand Karaj.

Fondly called as DeepVeer by their fans, the star couple has together worked in films such as 'Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela', 'Bajirao Mastani' and 'Padmaavat.'

There were only about 40 guests for the celebrations, but a no-pictures policy imposed on them, left the couple's fans pining to get a glimpse of the gala. Mobile phones were not allowed outside people's rooms, and there were boats patrolling the lake for drones as part of the three-level security plan for the wedding. The two left for the wedding revelry to Italy last week.

Deepika and Ranveer exchanged rings on Monday evening, and a more 'desi' touch to the celebrations came in with the 'mehendi' function on Tuesday afternoon, followed by a music-filled 'sangeet' the same evening.

For the mehendi cremony, Deepika wore a Sabyasachi Mukherjee creation and the couple was colour co-ordinated. Singer Harshdeep Kaur, along with Sanjoy Das, Bobby Pathak and Firoz Khan performed at the ceremony.

Poles apart from each other in personality, Deepika and Ranveer's love story began on the sets of filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali's '...Ram-Leela". Their off-screen camaraderie gave enough hints to their fans, the media and the film fraternity that love was brewing. But they never confirmed their relationship until recently. They put to rest months of speculation about their nuptials with a social media announcement in October of their wedding dates. "We thank you for all the love you have showered upon us over the years and seek your blessings as we embark on this incredible journey of love, loyalty friendship and togetherness," they said in the announcement.

Over the years, Deepika has been a bit more reserved than Ranveer in expressing her love openly, but the "Band Baaja Baaraat" actor has been uninhibited. While they spoke a bit about their likes and dislikes about each other at a summit in the capital in October, it is only on "Koffee With Karan" that Deepika was a little more open about her relationship with Ranveer.

After their very private wedding ceremonies, the couple will have a reception each in Bengaluru and Mumbai on 21 and 28 November, respectively. They have urged their guests to direct gifts in the form of a donation to Deepika's The Live Love Laugh Foundation, which works towards spreading awareness on mental health.
