Deepika Padukone And Ranveer Singh share their wedding photos

Deepika and Ranveer exchanged rings on Monday evening in Italy. A more ‘desi’ touch to the celebrations came in with the ‘Mehendi’ function on Tuesday afternoon, followed by a music-filled ‘sangeet’ the same evening.

Nov 16: Bollywood stars Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh unveiled their first look as a married couple to the public on Thursday, immensely pleasing their army of fans.

Both Ranveer and Deepika shared sets of two pictures on their respective Instagram accounts from the two wedding ceremonies they had in two days of wedding ceremonies in the far and dreamy Lake Como setting in Italy.

Both Deepika and Ranveer shared two images — one each from their four-hour-long ceremony according to Konkani traditions on Wednesday and a North Indian style nuptial on Thursday.

In one picture, the two are laughing away, sharing a jovial moment during the Konkani wedding, and in another photograph from the celebration on Thursday, they are all ears for each other.

Deepika looked resplendent on both occasions, dressed in Sabyasachi Mukherjee ensembles rooted in tradition as she chose red and gold as her primary colours. For the North Indian style wedding, Deepika’s head was covered with an ornate dupatta with the words ‘Sada Saubhagyavati Bhavah’ embroidered on it, while Ranveer matched up in a colour co-ordinated sherwani.

Ranveer wore pristine white for the Konkani wedding, which marked the culmination of a six year-long love story that began on the sets of the 2013 film “Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela”.

Interestingly, Thursday marked the fifth anniversary of the film’s release.

In a matter of 10 minutes of sharing the first pictures at around 8 p.m. on Thursday India time on Instagram, they jointly garnered over 4 lakh ‘likes’ as social media users were pining for a glimpse into the very private celebrations.

The couple’s film fraternity friends Farah Khan, Katrina Kaif, Farhan Akhtar, Priyanka Chopra, Alia Bhatt, Hrithik Roshan and Parineeti Chopra were among several others to extend congratulatory messages.

Unlike most celebrity weddings which keep fans engrossed with social media updates, the ‘no pictures, no phones, no drones policy’ of the actors’ grand destination wedding left the media and fans yearn for a glimpse of the couple or the celebrations.

Amit, a cousin of Deepika, a daughter of badminton ace Prakash Padukone, said it has been a “magical week, steeped purely in love” for the family.

“Fairytale union of the two most kind, beautiful souls. Ranveer, welcome to the family! You’ve dethroned me as filmiest, but I’ll cope. Deepika, never seen you happier; you deserve no less,” Amit tweeted.

That, apart from some long, wide-angle shots and some hazy videos from the wedding revelry, is all that people could get their eyes on.

The celebrations were as private as it could get. With a guest list of around 40, Deepika and Ranveer chose Northern Italy’s Lombardy region, a resort area known for its spectacular scenery as the backdrop for their wedding.

They were successful in hiding themselves from onlookers, using their umbrellas.

Mobile phones were not allowed outside people’s rooms and there were boats patrolling the lake for drones as part of the three-level security plan for the wedding.

Fondly called as DeepVeer by their fans, the star couple has also worked together in “Bajirao Mastani” and “Padmaavat” although they didn’t share screen space in the latter.

Before the two left for the wedding revelry to Italy last week, Deepika had a traditional puja at her Bengaluru residence while Ranveer had a ‘haldi’ ceremony at his Mumbai home.

Deepika and Ranveer exchanged rings on Monday evening in Italy. A more ‘desi’ touch to the celebrations came in with the ‘Mehendi’ function on Tuesday afternoon, followed by a music-filled ‘sangeet’ the same evening.

Singer Harshdeep Kaur, along with Sanjoy Das, Bobby Pathak and Firoz Khan, added a musical touch to the ceremony.

Poles apart from each other in personality, Deepika and Ranveer never confirmed their relationship until recently when they announced their wedding dates in October.

“We thank you for all the love you have showered upon us over the years and seek your blessings as we embark on this incredible journey of love, loyalty friendship and togetherness,” they said.

Over the years, Deepika has been a bit more reserved than Ranveer in expressing her love openly, but the “Band Baaja Baaraat” actor has been uninhabited.

The couple will have a reception each in Bengaluru and Mumbai on November 21 and 28 respectively. And on December 1, there will be a separate celebration with the film fraternity.

They have urged their guests to direct gifts in the form of a donation to Deepika’s The Live Love Laugh Foundation, which works towards spreading awareness on mental health.

After this wedding, all eyes are on Priyanka Chopra and her American singer beau Nick Jonas’ wedding, likely to happen next month.

‘Rangeela Raja’ passed with three cuts by FCAT

Published

govinda

Mumbai, Dec 13 : The battle of words with the Central Board Of Film Certification (CBFC) has ended for Pahlaj Nihalani. His film “Rangeela Raja”, which had been ordered 20 cuts by the Examining Committee, has now been passed with only three cuts by the Film Certificate Appellate Tribunal (FCAT), also known as the Tribunal.

But according to Nihalani, even those cuts are unjustified.

“They have objection on my using names from the Ramayan and the Mahabharat. Do they think they own these scriptures? The holy books belong to all of us. And we know how to respect them.

“They also feel I was disrespecting women in the film. I’ve never done that in my 40 years as a filmmaker. In our family, women run the show,” Nihalani said.

He feels the CBFC has practised a vendetta policy against him.

“Since I was the CBFC chairperson and I am no longer there, they decided to teach me a lesson. The 20 cuts that they originally ordered were all unwarranted, unjustified and grossly unfair.

“If I was the CBFC chairperson, I wouldn’t have ordered a single cut in my film. But then I don’t know where my successor is. I’ve never met him during my attempts to get my film out of the CBFC’s clutches,” he said, referring to current censor board chief Prasoon Joshi.

Now that the Govinda-starrer has been cleared, Nihalani will release it on January 11.

“I can’t release it in December with Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Zero’ or Ranveer Singh’s ‘Simmba’. Who will pay for the heavy losses I’ve suffered because of the delay?”

Web shows are more experimental: Purab

Directed by Danish Aslam, the second edition of Voot Original web series “It’s Not That Simple” also features Swara Bhasker and Sumeet Vyas.

purab kohli

New Delhi, Dec 13 : Actor Purab Kohli will soon be seen in the second season of web series “Its Not That Simple”. He says content and costing wise, web shows are more experimental than movies but he loves doing both.

“The good thing about web series is that it is the current trend. Many people like to watch it. It keeps you engaged for a longer period of time. You follow stories, it can be more fleshed out and told extensively,” Purab told IANS in an email interview.

“Web shows are more experimental in their content and costing wise. On the other hand, I love doing films. Both of them are very engaging,” he added.

Directed by Danish Aslam, the second edition of Voot Original web series “It’s Not That Simple” also features Swara Bhasker and Sumeet Vyas.

Swara plays Meera – confident, ambitious and a strong woman who becomes the mouthpiece of a modern woman who compels you to ask – Does the sex matter?

“The main pointers for me were that Meera’s character is moving forward so that straight away makes for a good second season and the show is moving in a direction. The character is growing and expanding itself. I mean finding more ground to head on so that itself is exciting,” said Purab.

“For me, the character Angad was very interesting. He is blatant, straightforward and at the same time very honest and he comes across as someone who you don’t like in the beginning but once you see how honest and straightforward he is of what he wants and what he says, I think. It’s quite refreshing to see someone like that,” added the “Rock On!!” actor.

On the show’s second season, he shared: “I think the first season dealt with breaking away and now the second season is where she (Meera) is finding new ground, she’s discovering new ground and finding a new self. Finding herself out of her marriage and traditional definitions of Meera, she is now trying to find new Meera.

“That Meera wants to achieve and be loved. I think that is the aspect people should look out for and of course, the introduction of mainly two known male characters played by Sumeet and me. Both are very interesting characters.”

Purab had also starred in the American science fiction drama web series “Sense8”.

Talking about the difference between shooting for an Indian web show and an American one, he pointed out: “Foreign productions function differently than Indian productions. The training is different. Outplay of the role is different, also the budgets are massively different so, it’s not fair to even compare.”
