Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh set to tie the knot in Italy

New Delhi, Nov 14: A six-year-long love story will culminate with a wedding on Wednesday when actors Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh tie the knot in a dreamy Lake Como setting in Italy amidst a tight circle of family and friends.

The actors, adored for their on-screen chemistry in movies like “Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela” and “Bajirao Mastani”, as much as for their off-screen chemistry, left for the wedding revelry to Italy last week.

There are only about 40 guests for the celebrations, and fans of the couple on social media have been pining to get a glimpse of the pre-wedding galas.

But their appetite is not being satiated not just due to strict security instructions, but because mobile phones are not allowed outside people’s rooms, those in the know of developments told IANS.

They are in Northern Italy’s Lombardy region, an upscale resort area known for its spectacular scenery.

Deepika and Ranveer exchanged rings on Monday evening, and 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.

For the mehendi, Deepika wore a Sabyasachi Mukherjee creation and the couple was colour co-ordinated. Singer Harshdeep Kaur, along with Sanjoy Das, Bobby Pathak and Firoz Khan performed at the ceremony.

The wedding spans two days of ceremonies. On Wednesday, they will marry according to Konkani customs, while on the following day, they will have a traditional Anand Karaj ceremony.

Deepika, daughter of badminton ace Prakash Padukone, is likely to wear a Sabyasachi ensemble for the Anand Karaj.

Bollywood buffs are curious what the couple will wear, and hashtags to the tune of #DeepVeer and #DeepVeerKiShaadi have been trending on social media.

Poles apart from each other in personality, Deepika and Ranveer’s love story began on the sets of “… Ram-Leela”. Their off-screen camaraderie gave enough hints to their fans, the media and the film fraternity that love was brewing.

But they never confirmed their relationship until recently. They put to rest months of speculation about their nuptials with a social media announcement in October of their wedding dates.

“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 in the announcement.

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 uninhibited.

While they spoke a bit about their likes and dislikes about each other at a summit in the capital in October, it is only on “Koffee With Karan” that Deepika was a little more open about her relationship with Ranveer.

After their very private wedding ceremonies, the couple will have a reception each in Bengaluru and Mumbai on November 21 and 28, respectively.

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.

Kangana slammed the series, calling it “Hindu phobic, atrocious and objectionable”.

“The problem isn’t just the Hindu phobic content, it’s also creatively poor and deprived, atrocious and objectionable on every level hence deliberately placed controversial scenes. Put them in jail not just for criminal intentions but also for torturing the viewer #tandavwebseries,” the actress tweeted from her verified account on Monday.

Kangana’s tweet comes at a time when a criminal complaint has been filed before a Delhi court seeking action against OTT platform Amazon Prime and the makers of the web series.

Los Angeles, Jan 19 : Actor Jared Leto says he enjoyed working with director Zack Snyder on his version of Justice League, known as the Snyder cut.

The actor will reprise the role of the Joker in the Snyder Cut of Justice League.

“He’s (Snyder) a warrior. He’s a madman. I really love him,” said Leto, reports contactmusic.com.

“With every character I play – I don’t know if it’s because I work so intently and I tend to dig really deep and put a lot of time and energy into it – but when I’m done playing with them, done playing the parts, I do miss them a little bit,” he added.

Leto had played the Joker in the 2016 release, Suicide Squad. He loves the chance to play the part of the DC Comics villain again.

“You do all this work and then you’re done, so it is nice to revisit things. You know, parts like the Joker, like Sparma (his role in ‘The Little Things’), what’s really great about those roles is they can be intense and dark, but there’s also a lot of freedom and abandon there,” said Leto.

“And that’s really fun for me, it’s fun for the other actors, it’s fun for the crew. With both of those roles, there was lots of laughter on the set and a lot of joy because you would improvise and say something really funny. So it’s always quite a lot of fun when you can hear people cracking up on the other side of the camera, and I like that quite a bit,” he added.

Elizabeth Olsen

Los Angeles, Jan 19 : Hollywood star Elizabeth Olsen says she once thought of changing her surname and distance herself from the success of her family because it was insanity growing up in the spotlight.

“It was insanity. There were times when my sisters would always be spotted and I would be in the car with them and it would really freak me out. It has helped me navigate how I want to approach my career,” said the actress, whose older sisters are Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen.

The actress added that she “always had this need to prove myself to everyone around me that I work really hard”, adding: “I couldn’t walk in a room without everyone already having an opinion.”

Elizabeth opened up om the fears of nepotism.

“The thing about nepotism is the fear that you don’t earn or deserve the work. There was even a part of me when I was a little girl that thought if I’m gonna be an actress I’m going to go by Elizabeth Chase, which is my middle name. And then, once I started working, I was like, ‘I love my family, I like my name, I love my sisters. Why would I be so ashamed of that?’ It’s fine now,” she said.

The actress said fame has made her more of a homebody.

“Fame has also made me someone who is more of a homebody than maybe I would like to be but I know where not to go. If I could do whatever I wanted for the day, I’d start with the gym, then I’d go to the grocery store, because it’s my favourite thing,” Elizabeth told The Sun.
