Vidya Balan and Siddharth Roy Kapur’s wedding celebrations started on December 11, 2012 with a very intimate sangeet at La Mode banquet hall in Juhu. It was a family-only affair and the only celebrity present was veteran actress Rekha who looked gorgeous in a green saree. Vidya wore a burgundy red Kanjeevaram saree and Siddharth wore a white embroidered kurta. Vidya’s cousins and Siddharth’s actor brothers Aditya and Kunal performed to hit songs; Vidya danced to her super-hit dance track ‘Ooh La La’ from ‘Dirty Picture’.

Vidya’s Mehndi, at her residence was also a very private affair. According to reports, the actress didn’t invite a professional Mehndi artist or Bollywood’s favorite artists like Veena Nagda or Usha Shah to do her mehendi. Friends of the bride had fun applying Mehndi on each others hands. Vidya looked very happy and relaxed and wore a saree, Bengali style by her favorite designer- Sabyasachi, accessorised with floral ornaments. Later, Vidya obliged the waiting cameramen by stepping out with her family members for a photo-op.

The very private couple have kept their celebration venues a secret. Earlier it was reported that the traditional nuptials will be held on December 14th, at Siddharth’s parents home in Jolly Maker Towers, Cuffe Parade. Now it is reported that the ceremony will be solemnized at the Subramania Samaj Temple in Chedha Nagar, Chembur. Coincidentally, December 14th also happens to be the wedding anniversary of Priya, Vidya’s older sister, an ex advertising executive who is married to Kedar, a Marketing Manager with Unilever India.
The venue for the post wedding Reception is also not confirmed, though speculation is rife that it is in Chennai.
