Mar­riages seem to be trending in B-town, and how! With Anushka Sharma and Vi­rat Kohli kick start­ing the shaadi sea­son, things just seem to be get­ting more in­ter­est­ing. While Sonam ki doli is ex­pected to take-off any­time this sum­mer, there’s one more wedding which has been writ­ten and spo­ken about Z num­ber of times with­out any of­fi­cial con­fir­ma­tion about the same. While the ru­mor mills have been churn­ing in­ces­santly about the im­pend­ing mar­riage of the fave cou­ple of Tin­sel Town, Deepika Padukone and Ran­veer Singh, the ac­tors just don’t seem to be giv­ing it away just yet. The In­dian junta has heard umpteen num­ber of sto­ries about how the cou­ple have se­cretly tied the knot in the pres­ence of close fam­ily and friends. While nei­ther of them have come out in the open and ad­mit­ted about their re­la­tion­ship, they haven’t de­nied it ei­ther. Some­time back when the gor­geous Ms Padukone was asked about her re­la­tion­ship with Ran­veer, she had re­port­edly said, “For me, he is a friend. He is a con­fi­dante. He’s some­one I can talk to. There is de­bate, there is con­ver­sa­tion. Some­times we agree, some­times we dis­agree, but I guess that’s what makes the friend­ship beau­ti­ful.” Ear­lier, the cou­ple re­turned from Deepika’s birth­day va­cay. Since then the gos­sips es­ca­lated about the Ram Leela cou­ple hav­ing had se­cret nup­tial. The par­ents of the ac­tors also seem to have met to dis­cuss the mar­riage and have ap­par­ently ex­changed gifts and jew­ellery which in­cluded a Sabyasachi sari and a di­a­mond set. They have al­legedly short­listed four aus­pi­cious dates be­tween Septem­ber and De­cem­ber for the wedding as well. The Padukones’ and Bhav­na­nis’ have al­legedly also started venue­hunt­ing be­fore they fix a date. And it seems the ajab si adaaon wali Deepu has al­ready started shop­ping with her mother and sis­ter for her bridal trousseau and jew­ellery. It also sug­gested that the wedding is ex­pected to be a pri­vate af­fair with only close friends and fam­ily in at­ten­dance. There were also re­ports about Ran­veer, who hap­pens to be the brand am­bas­sador of the Swiss tourism, get­ting an of­fer to tie the knot with his lady love amidst the snow-capped moun­tains. But, there’s been no con­fir­ma­tion on that! As they say there’s no smoke with­out fire, let’s give you some food for thought and probe deeper. Firstly, post de­liv­er­ing noth­ing but stel­lar per­for­mances in SLB’s Pad­maa­vat, the al­leged cou­ple has upped their PDA level, and how! Right from en­ter­ing the film premier hand in hand to ap­par­ently ac­cept­ing Mr Singh to be her “boyfriend”, they’ve fi­nally let the cat out of the bag. In a re­cent in­ter­view, Deepika re­port­edly said,“It is what it is and I wouldn’t chal­lenge it.” That com­ing from the leggy lass is in­deed ‘huge’ as she’s of­ten shied away from speak­ing about ‘her man’. Ran­veer has also said that he has a lot of things on his plate but has con­fessed that mar­riage is def­i­nitely on his mind. Se­condly, our very own Mas­tani, who’s known to be work­ing around the clock, hasn’t signed a sin­gle film post Pad­maa­vat (con­sid­er­ing the fact that the film Sap­naDidi, in which she was to fea­ture with the cur­rently ailing Ir­rfan Khan, has been put on hold) and is cur­rently nurs­ing a neck in­jury. Thirdly, both the ac­tors have ap­par­ently made sure that they are free from pro­fes­sional com­mit­ments and have ap­par­ently kept their cal­en­dars clear for the end of the year. And fi­nally, when the Piku ac­tor was asked about her views on mar­riage, she re­port­edly said, “Work is too much a part of my life to say that I can walk away from it. But I also be­lieve that home, fam­ily, par­ents and mar­riage are also very im­por­tant to me. To­day, I can see my­self as a work­ing wife or mother. I think I’d drive every­body around me mad if I didn’t work.” But the Cock­tail ac­tor also con­fused peo­ple when she said, “Mar­riage is def­i­nitely part of my life. It’s def­i­nitely some­thing that I want for my­self. But when that hap­pens, how it hap­pens, I think it’s just in­stinct. I think it’s im­por­tant to know when it’s right.” Will we see Deepika as a bride this win­ter? Will Ran­veer fi­nally make Deepika his Mis­sus? Will this be the year of ‘Deep­Veer’? Time will tell whether wedding bells will be ring­ing for this cou­ple or will it just be a false alarm. So will they or won’t they? Only ‘Deep­veer’ can tell!
