Bollywood couple Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh hosted a wedding reception in Mumbai on Wednesday. The party began after 8 pm, and was attended by close family members and mediapersons. The couple hosted a reception in Bengaluru on November 21 and are scheduled to organise another on December 1, this time for their industry friends.

The reception was held at the Grand Hyatt, and was organised by Ranveer’s sister, Ritika Bhavnani. The Bengaluru reception was organised by Deepika’s parents, Ujjala and Prakash Padukone.

Deepika and Ranveer tied the knot in a secret ceremony in Italy’s Lake Como over a two-day affair on November 14 and 15. Two ceremonies - Konkani and Anand Karaj - were held, and official pictures from the festivities were shared by the couple on their social media upon their return to India. Deepika and Ranveer were given a heroes’ welcome when they touched down in Mumbai on November 17.
