Deepika Padukone on why ex-boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor skipped her wedding reception

It is over a month since Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh got married in Italy’s Lake Como and then went ahead and hosted multiple wedding receptions in India but people’s fascination with the nuptials is far from over. Deepika, in a new interview, has answered all questions around her wedding. One of the most important, of course, being why did her ex Ranbir Kapoor didn’t attend the wedding reception.

Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone’s wedding reception wasn’t attended by Ranbir Kapoor.
Deepika and Ranveer’s wedding reception had everyone from Amitabh Bachchan with family, to Katrina Kaif, Anushka Sharma and Shah Rukh Khan among others. Conspicuous by their absence were Ranbir as well as girlfriend Alia Bhatt.

While an online portal later reported that the two actors were busy with shooting of their upcoming film Brahmastra, Deepika has now said, “We’ve not spoken. I mean, we spoke before the reception but we have not spoken after. But, that’s him. I’m not surprised at all. But, that’s the relationship we share and that’s the beauty of that relationship; so much is said without saying much at all.”
Deepika and Ranveer’s wedding took place in Lake Como amid security that is usually reserved for state heads. Deepika said the choice of venue was due to privacy. “We announced everything, we announced (wedding dates) a month before we got married and I’d anyway taken this year off as I needed to replenish emotionally, so it all just worked out. Why outside of India, because privacy was very important for us and somehow when we went around, that place just felt correct.”

Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh’s wedding in lake Como was ‘magical’, says actor.
In the interview, Deepika called the wedding ceremonies – in accordance with Konkani and north Indian rituals – as a magical affair. “More than fairytale, I’d say it was magical. It was lovely- the weather was perfect, the sun was beautiful, I think magical is the one word to sum it up.”
