Reports emanating from Mumbai indicate that close on the heels of top actress Kareena Kapur getting married to her long-time beau Saif Ali Khan a few weeks back in Mumbai, it might be the turn of the Palakkad-born national award-winning actress Vidya Balan’s turn to enter into matrimonial bliss.
Vidya has an open affair with Siddharth Roy Kapoor( Vidya’s SRK ) of UTV. The couple has been going around for the past few years and it seems that Vidya has decided to take their relationship to its logical conclusion: getting married. Despite her Southern backdrop and with no godfathers to prop her up, Vidya has made it to the top in Bollywood thanks to her sheer talent and class.
Sources close to the actress, who has had back-to-back super-hit films in The Dirty Picture and Kahaani, say that the arrangements for a grand wedding have already been kick-started by Vidya’s family. Vidya would be clad in her favourite Kancheepuram silk saree at the time of her marriage. The actress, who is a known lover of putting on sarees at public events, is said to have ordered popular costume designer Sabyasachi to design 18 sarees on the eve of her marriage.
Sabyasachi would soon be in Chennai to select the silk sarees . Vidya’s marriage is to be held according to Tamil customs and would be held in a popular temple. The couple’s parents have reportedly decided to keep the marriage as simple an affair as possible. The marriage, however, would be followed by a grand reception to be held in Mumbai for the benefit of the Bollywood fraternity.
It remains to be seen as to what brand of jewellery Vidya opts for. For the record, she is the brand ambassadror of Ranka Jewellers.
Let’s wish Vidya and her SRK in advance a very happy and prosperous marriage!
