Vidya Balan will marry Siddharth Roy Kapur at the latter’s parental home in Cuffe Parade away from the fraternity’s prying eyes. The actress who has always acknowledged her traditional roots, will remain loyal to them for her big day as well. She’ll marry Siddharth at a small, traditional ceremony on December 14 in the presence of family and only the closest friends.
The one-day affair will take place, not at any five-star destination, but at the sprawling Cuffe Parade apartment in Jolly Maker Towers, which belongs to SRK’s parents. For the uninitiated, SRK is Vidya’s affectionate moniker for the UTV honcho.
Like everything she does, there is a little story behind the wedding date as well. And this was revealed by one of Vidya’s closest friends. “Vidya’s sister Priya also got married on December 14. The close-knit family considers this date to be extremely auspicious,” said the friend, adding, “From next year, this date will bring twice the happiness for the Balan family. Priya especially is on cloud nine.”
Vidya’s trousseau has been designed by Sabyasachi and she plans to wear sarees for the special day. The couple intend to take off on a Caribbean cruise two days after the wedding. This is the same cruise plan, which was earlier meant to be a family affair. Once back, the newly weds will walk straight into their Rs 14-crore Juhu apartment which Siddharth had bought last year as a gift for his fiancee. The house has already received his special, feminine touches thanks to the actress, who has been shopping for accessories and highlights for a while now.
