Actors Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh are all set to tie the knot in a grand ceremony at Lake Como in Northern Italy. The countdown for the wedding has begun as the couple kick-started their pre-wedding functions at Villa del Balbianello. After the couple was spotted at the airport in all-white while leaving for the wedding amid dhol beats, the guests have also reached Italy to join the two lovebirds in the celebrations. According to the reports, a sangeet function is lined up for tonight with singers like Harshdeep Kaur set to perform at the do.

Ranveer’s stylist Nitasha Gaurav is also among the excited lot who can’t keep calm over the biggest wedding of the year. As her latest tweet says, “No pictures but it was love personified to see them together today. Couldn’t stop my tears, but these were tears of happiness and so I hope they never do. #DeepVeerKiShaadi #ranveerkishaadi #foreverlove,” we can gasp in wonder that the pre-wedding celebrations have already begun in one of the most desired wedding destinations.  

While most of the guests have arrived for the big day, singer Harshdeep Kaur dropped major hints of attending the biggest wedding of the year by sharing her in-flight picture with the cryptic caption, “Off to a very special place for an even more special occasion. Arrivederci.” A picture of her fellow musicians including Sanjoy Das, Bobby Pathak and Firoz Khan has been going viral on the web as the team is reportedly set to perform at their sangeet and mehendi ceremony on November 13.  


Nitasha had accompanied the actor on his way to Italy and shared a few snaps with her girl gang from their wedding shopping which went with the tagline ‘The ladkey ke side ki ladies’. Among the expected guests are some of the very close friends of the couple like Shah Rukh Khan, Farah Khan and Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
