Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone have reportedly been together since 2013.

Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh’s rumoured wedding is on schedule, with a new report providing further details about their upcoming nuptials. It was previously reported that Deepika and Ranveer will tie the knot in a private ceremony in Italy’s Lake Como on November 20.

According to a SpotboyE report, a grand puja will be organised 10 days before the wedding in Deepika’s hometown, Bangalore, which will be followed by a lavish reception in Mumbai expected to be attended by the couple’s Bollywood friends. A source close to the Padukones has told SpotboyE that a Nandi Puja will be held at their Bangalore residence, and that Deepika’s mother Ujjala has spoken to a Nandi Temple about arranging priests for the puja.

A source had previously confirmed to Filmfare that the wedding date had been confirmed. “Both Ranveer and Deepika were keen on having a destination wedding in Italy and they have finalised Lake Como as their wedding destination. The place is dotted with exquisite villas along the shoreline, which is why both of them decided to wed in this beautiful place,” a source told the magazine.

Ranveer had downplayed wedding rumours in an earlier interview to India Today. “These are things I think about. I try to create a life and work balance. As much as I am consumed by my work at the moment, these things (marriage) are on my mind. But nothing decisive as of now,” he had said.

According to Filmfare’s June report, “The maximum time was taken to decide the date. Both Ranveer and Deepika want everything about their marriage to be perfect. November 10th suited their calendars as well as their parents. The roka was done long back and the wedding date was finalised just a few weeks ago.”

The families were toying with the idea of hosting the wedding in Udaipur, but that didn’t work out. Instead, there is a possibility that two ceremonies might be organised, much like what Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma did.

“Preparations are in full swing from both sides. Ladies have begun the wedding shopping. Ranveer is extremely excited about the wedding and is evidently on cloud nine with both his professional and personal life being on a high,” the source continued.

Recently, actor Kabir Bedi seemingly provided the first confirmation of the wedding in a cryptic tweet. Replying to a Filmfare tweet about wedding guest and other details, the actor wrote, “Great couple! Great locale in Italy! Great event! Wishing @RanveerOfficial and @deepikapadukone a wonderful wedding, and a lifetime of happiness.”

While Deepika and Ranveer have never announced their relationship publicly, they have been rumoured to be dating since 2013. They’ve starred in three films together — Ram Leela, Bajirao Mastani and the recent Padmaavat — and have been very affectionate towards each other on social media. Ranveer and Deepika frequently leave comments on each others’ pictures.
