Vidya Balan, Siddharth Roy Kapur to have wedding reception in Chennai


By Hindustan Times

Rumours about Vidya Balan and her impending wedding with UTV Motion Pictures head honcho, Siddharth Roy Kapur, in the city on December 14 have been doing the rounds for a while. Since the two have remained extremely tight-lipped about their relationship from the start, curiosity about their marriage is at an all-time high. Now the latest news is that the duo will not host their reception in the city. Instead, they will be flying off to Chennai for the event.

A source close to Vidya reveals, “Vidya is from Chennai. That’s why after the Mumbai ceremony, the couple, along with their families, will head there.

Like the wedding, the reception is also expected to be a quiet affair and not something grand. Apart from a few close friends, only their family members will be present for it.”

Currently, Vidya is busy preparing her designer trousseau for the big day. “Wedding preparations are in full-swing. Vidya is very particular about what she wants to wear and how she wants the whole ceremony to take place. She is personally instructing everyone working on the wedding,” adds the source.

Apparently, the soon-to-be married couple has also decided to maintain an exclusive guest list for their wedding. Rumour has it that not too many big names from the industry will be seen making appearances. The source adds, “Vidya is a family-oriented person, which is also why she has decided to host a quiet reception in Chennai.”

More on the couple

Vidya Balan came close to Siddharth Roy Kapur in 2010 during the shooting of his studio's film, No One Killed Jessica. She admitted dating the UTV honcho in an interview in May 2012.

Since then, the two have been spotted together at private parties and vacations.

Siddharth Roy Kapur had also bought a sea-facing apartment in Juhu, Mumbai for his ladylove which reportedly cost him approx. Rs. 14 crore. The two are rumoured to be living-in together also.

The actress described her relationship as tasty. "Undhiyu is the word that describes our relationship - tasty, sweet, spicy and salty. It has everything," she had said earlier in an interview.
