Vid-Sid mislead media about wedding at a Chembur temple. Instead they married at a shooting bungalow in Bandra
After giving the paparazzi a hard time with the venue of the wedding, Vidya Balan andSiddharth Roy Kapur tied the knot at Green Gift, a bungalow in Bandra. This bungalow is the same venue where Vidya has shot countless commercials with her mentor filmmaker Pradeep Sarkar.
Amidst reports that a traditional South Indianwedding was to take place at a temple in Chembur, Vidya and Siddharth chose this bungalow in Bandra which they felt was more suited for the occasion and more private.
A source close to the duo says, “Nobody, not even close family friendsand relatives were told about the venue. They were just instructed to sit in the vehicle that comes to pick them up and proceed to the venue. All the guests arrived at around 7 am. A vadhiyar (priest) was summoned to carry out the wedding rituals and contrary to reports that it was a traditional South Indian wedding, it was a mix of Tamil and Punjabi rituals. Vidya wore a saree designed by Sabyasachi.”
The entire bungalow had been sealed for security reasons. Nearby buildings too had been sealed so that no images of the ceremony are leaked. Relatives had been requested to remain tight-lipped and asked to click no pictures of the bride and groom. Only immediate members of both the families were present.
There are also reports that a reception was being planned for their friends from the industry in the evening.
