Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone, who are in Italy for their two-day wedding festivities, were married in a traditional Konkani ceremony today at Villa del Balbianello in Lake Como. An Anand Karaj ceremony, held in the Sikh tradition, will be held on Thursday. The Ranveer-Deepika wedding will be attended by their close friends and family.

Security measures at the event locations have been compared to that provided for world leaders, with drone interceptors in the sky and guests being made to wear special wrist bands and scan unique QR codes on their phones to gain entry. Of course, pictures have been hard to come by.

 

While photos may be elusive, a few details from Deepika and Ranveer’s sangeet and mehendi ceremonies have begun to trickle out. For instance, Deepika teared up at the sangeet ceremony during a Shubha Mudgal performance, while Ranveer made a grand entry to his Gunday song, Tune Maari Entriyaan.

With two important ceremonies to be conducted on Wednesday and Thursday, get all Deepika-Ranveer wedding highlights here.

Deepika, Ranveer Singh’s wedding security at par with that for world leaders

The catchy beats of ‘London Thumakda’ and ‘Dama Dum Mast Kalandar’ reverberated around the idyllic surrounds of Lake Como on Tuesday as Bollywood super-couple Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone held their mehendi and sangeet ahead of their wedding on Wednesday. Security at both venues is on a par with that provided for a meeting of world leaders.

Ranveer’s event took place at the ultra-luxurious CastaDiva Resort overlooking Lake Como while Deepika’s ceremony took place at the even more glamorous Villa d’ Este about 5 kilometers away.

At the CastaDiva resort for instance, any and all guests or visitors have to present a special wrist band while security guards cover up the camera lenses on mobile phones with stickers. The e-invite also bears a QR code to be scanned at the entry. On the lake itself, numerous security boats patrol just outside the perimeter of the property to deter snooping photographers or gossip hunters.
