Bengaluru: Celebrities from the Kannada film industry, Sandalwood bigwigs and well-known sports personalities will reportedly attend the wedding reception of Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh.

The wedding reception is scheduled to be held today at Leela Palace Hotel. 


The menu for the event is touted to be the main reason why the hotel venue was chosen for the reception and features south Indian and Italian cuisines. A source close to the bride revealed, "The biggest reason why Deepika chose to have the reception at The Leela Palace, Bangaluru was because of the renowned Italian restaurant of New York Le Cirque, which goes by the name Le Cirque Signature. DP loves the restaurant in NYC and their franchise in Bengaluru drew Deepika to The Leela. Her mother has also gone for food tasting 2-3 times. The food will be pre-dominantly south Indian though." 


The guest list of the Bengaluru wedding reception includes actors Upendra, Kiccha Sudeep, Yash, Puneeth Rajkumar, filmmaker Indrajith Lankesh and others. Apart from celebs from Kannada film industry, sports personalities such as Anil Kumble, Rahul Dravid and many badminton players are reportedly gracing the wedding reception.

Reports also suggest that the celebs from other Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam film industries are also attending the wedding reception.


Deepika has her roots in Bengaluru. She did her schooling in the Garden City before opting for a career in modelling. She was spotted by filmmaker Indrajith Lankesh, who is now working on Shakeela's biopic where Richa Chaddha is playing the lead role. Indrajith introduced Deepika to the Kannada film industry in 2006 with the film Aishwarya in which she paired up with Upendra.


Later, she made her Bollywood debut in Farah Khan's Om Shanti Om in which Shah Rukh Khan played the lead role. And the rest is history. 

The couple tied the knot at the Villa del Balbianello at Lake Como, Italy on November 14 in the presence of family members and close friends.
