Deepika’s parents Ujwala and Prakash Padukone and sister Anisha led the ladkiwale – Anisha even updated her Instagram bio to reflect this – and the baaraat included Ranveer Singh’s parents and sister Ritika.
It’s beautiful how the two have blended so well in each other’s customs and traditions.
While many pictures and videos have been leaked from outside the venue, nothing official made its way online until the couple took to their social media handles and released the first official pictures from their much-anticipated wedding. The couple looks extremely beautiful and completely in love.

Bengaluru reception on November 21
Before indulging their B-Town friends into the revelry with their Mumbai reception, the couple is planning to host a reception in Deepika’s hometown. They have booked the ballroom of The Leela Palace Hotel for the grand reception on November 21 that will have Deepika’s extended family and close friends in attendance. According to a report, Deepika has chosen The Leela for her reception for a very special reason.
“The biggest reason why Deepika chose to have the reception at the Leela, Bangalore was renowned Italian restaurant of New York, Le Cirque which goes by the name Le Cirque Signature. DP loves the restaurant in NYC and their franchise in Bengaluru drew Deepika to The Leela. Her mother has also gone food tasting 2-3 times. The food will be predominantly South Indian though. They will check into the hotel on 20th and check out on 22nd,” a source told an entertainment portal.
