Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh hosted their first reception in Bengaluru on November 21. While several names from the sports fraternity made it to the gala event, the event too was a close knit affair.
The Padmaavat actors dated for six long years, before tying the knot in Italy on November 14 and 15. The two returned to Mumbai on November 18 and left for Bengaluru on Tuesday. A day before their first reception, Deepika and Ranveer had flooded their social media accounts with candid photos from their Italian wedding ceremonies, the mehendi and the two nuptials – the Konkani and the north Indian wedding.
