Pre-wedding rituals Nandi Puja: Bride-to-be Deepika Padukone glows in saffron


Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh’s wedding kick-starts with Nandi puja at the actress’s residence in Bengaluru. A picture from the pre-wedding rituals was shared on social media. Deepika Padukone shines in a stunning saffron Sabyasachi ensemble.

The diva wore a saffron bandhgala silk suit with white pants paired with embroidered dupatta.

She is accessorised with gorgeous statement Sabyasachi jhumkis. Her make-up was natural. She donned a nude pink lipstick. Deepika’s puja look is a total hit and we can take our eyes off the actress.

Deepika was styled by her long-time friend and stylist Shaleena for the ceremony. Gabriel Georgiou has done her hair. He too was present at the pooja ceremony.

It was reported in August that Deepika’s mom Ujjala Padukone wanted a Nandi Puja and she has contacted the officials of famous Nandi Temple in Bangalore regarding the booking of pundits who will perform this grand Puja for the would-be bride and groom.

After this puja, Deepika will be seen sporting glass bangles, through the wedding festivities. The Nandi Puja is generally performed 10 days before the wedding. 

The lovebirds will be wedded on November 14th and 15th at the eye-catching Lake Como, Italy. “It’s a very special day for both Ranveer and Deepika which is why they just want the close ones to be present for their wedding ceremony. Mostly it will be their families and a few close friends. The guest list consists of merely 30 people and that’s exactly how these two want it. Italy is a favourite destination of both Ranveer and Deepika so they want to keep their big day more of a private affair. They are looking forward to hosting grand receptions once they’re back in India post the wedding,” a source told the magazine.

“It will be an extremely private, traditional Hindu ceremony with the couple tying the knot in the presence of only close friends and family. The couple is still deciding if they want a reception to follow,” a source further informed. 

For more than five years, the couple is going strong. Their love story started on the set of ‘Ram Leela’ and since then going great guns.
