Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh Get Married In Italy, Konkani Style


Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone got married in Lake Como, Italy yesterday in a highly publicised by secret ceremony that was attended by close friends and family. Though a few paparazzi managed to brave the security and clicked a few photographs of what could be best described as the venue, the world at large is still waiting for the photographs of the wedding to emerge.

What just got over is only the first of a two-part wedding. While Lake Como played host to the Konkani version, a Punjabi ceremony is awaited today. Two reception parties – one in Padukone’s hometown of Bengaluru on November 21 and another one in Mumbai on November 28 have been scheduled.

Karan Johar showered his wishes on the couple for the event.

Union Minister Smriti Irani echoed the public sentiments pertaining to the wait for the wedding photographs.

Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone, who’ve been in a relationship for 6 years, have worked together only in 3 movies (barring Finding Fanny where Singh had a brief cameo) –all of them Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s who first cast the pair in his 2013 movie Ram Leela.

Ram Leela is based on William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. Bhansali adapted the story and planted it in a fictional Gujarati village, with the couple playing lovers who hail from warring clans. Their relationship starts off in classic ‘love at first sight’ manner, but turns progressively intense and culminates in a dramatic high. A chance encounter, followed by a mad-senseless love between them which then gives way to a highly intense love that’s both physical and emotional only for the characters to be driven apart by circumstances in the end.

Bajirao Mastani took the actors back in history, gave them royal lineages and responsibilities. Ranveer Singh played the Peshwa warrior Bajirao who falls for the Muslim princess Mastani. While in Ram Leela, the two played teenage lovers, here they were grown up royals. Each had their own care and responsibility. In the film, Bajirao was already married, and he had to deal with the loss of goodwill to his royalty that comes with loving another woman, that too of a Muslim lineage.

In Padmaavat, the tables are turned. Deepika Padukone, who plays Rani Padmavati, is already married but the “evil” Muslim king Khilji, played by Ranveen Singh, is lusting after her. The film courted controversy right from the start, with members of the Rajput clan claiming that it distorted history, never mind Rani Padmini herself was a figment of some writer’s imagination.

Despite the combinations that Bhansali tried out in his three movies, perhaps even he didn’t foresee the characters walking off into the sunset together; probably because of the director’s affinity to kill one if not more of his characters in the end.

In real life however, the two are now married and will henceforth be known as #DeepVeer.
