Rumours about Vidya Balan and her impending wedding with UTV Motion Pictures head honcho, Siddharth Roy Kapur, in the city on December 14 have been doing the rounds for a while. Since the two have remained extremely tight-lipped about their relationship from the start, curiosity about their marriage is at an all-time high. Now the latest news is that the duo will not host their reception in the city. Instead, they will be flying off to Chennai for the event.
A source close to Vidya reveals, “Vidya is from Chennai. That’s why after the Mumbai ceremony, the couple, along with their families, will head there.
Like the wedding, the reception is also expected to be a quiet affair and not something grand. Apart from a few close friends, only their family members will be present for it.”
Currently, Vidya is busy preparing her designer trousseau for the big day. “Wedding preparations are in full-swing. Vidya is very particular about what she wants to wear and how she wants the whole ceremony to take place. She is personally instructing everyone working on the wedding,” adds the source.
This is probably the only pic where paparazzi managed to click the couple together.
Apparently, the soon-to-be married couple has also decided to maintain an exclusive guest list for their wedding. Rumour has it that not too many big names from the industry will be seen making appearances. The source adds, “Vidya is a family-oriented person, which is also why she has decided to host a quiet reception in Chennai.”
