The couple had thrown a reception in Bangalore on November 21 and another in Mumbai on November 28 for family and friends.
Deepika and Ranveer dated for six years before they got married at the picturesque Lake Como in Italy. They first got married as per Konkani rituals on November 14 and then again on the 15th in an Anand Karaj ceremony.
Cupid struck them on the sets of Sanjay Leela Bhansali-directed “Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela” (2013). The two were later seen together in “Bajirao Mastani” (2015) and “Padmaavat” (2018).
