So as the saying goes, “Marriages are made in heaven.” This entire week has been buzzing with wedding news, beginning with Sonam Kapoor tying-the-knot with longtime boyfriend Anand Ahuja on Tuesday.
Today, we all were surprised to know that Neha Dhupia got hitched to actor Angad Bedi. Ironically, both were conducted via a traditional Sikh ceremony.
In Bollywood, there are two couples at the moment who have literally been talk-of-the-town for quite some time now. Yes, we are talking about Varun-Natasha and Ranveer-Deepika.
Whilst both jodis have kept mum about their relationships, from their photographs and public appearances, there seems to be some sort of compatibility and proximity with each other.
Varun Dhawan and Natasha Dalal
From statements made, it seems like Varun Dhawan believes in the institution of marriage. He feels that his relationships are his personal space. Though, he has claimed that he is not hiding anything and everything is out in the open.
With regards to his privacy, he opined: “I just ignore it. I believe you can’t do anything beyond that’ll you can do is make your work so powerful that people don’t have anything else to talk about but your work. Whenever my film releases, I hope people talk about it and not other things.”
However, Sonam’s reception was the first major public event where both of them appeared in front of the Paparazzi. Varun wore a kurta-pyjama with a jacket while Natasha was dressed in a light cream lehenga, which she paired with a maangteeka. Without saying anything, this itself says it all!
Another reason why this couple is trending is due to Varun’s Instagram story, featuring Natasha. It was her birthday and Varun posted a selfie of them posing together. When VD was quizzed by a leading daily about getting hitched this year, he answered:
“Honestly, I would love to do that, but I don’t know how my parents would react to it. Being Punjabis, they would want to do it the traditional way. The next step is something every individual wants to take at some point, but right now, it’s not on the agenda.” Well, never say never!
Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone
Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone’s relationship has been kept under wraps for quite some time and both have spoken about marriage – vaguely.
The two actors, whom we have loved for many years on-screen as Ram-Leela and Bajirao Mastani (to name a few), have always addressed one another as someone ‘special’ in their lives. Recently in a media interview, Deepika Padukone opened-up on her marriage plans and stated:
“When it is time, I’ll know that it is the right time. I think as an institution, it is extremely important. That’s the way I have been brought up. It is extremely important for me to see myself like that. It is every girl’s dream. I have always followed my instinct and I know that I will feel it when I am ready and when it’s meant to happen.”
Soon after, a close source had stated, “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 few weeks back, Ranveer Singh stated that there is no marriage on the cards as of yet. He cited:
“If there is an announcement in the future, you will be hearing me shouting from the rooftops. When it is time, I think I will know it.
But as an institution, I think it is extremely important because that’s the way I have been raised. It is extremely important for me to see myself like that. It is every girl’s dream. I have always followed my instincts and I think I will feel it when I am ready or when it has to happen.”
Despite this, there seems to be a buzz that both actors could tie-the-knot in November. But nothing is yet official.
So, how and when could these couples get married? Only time and fate will decide!
