Bollywood’s most-followed couples are tying the knot year after year. Virat-Anushka’s and Deepika-Ranveer’s serene Italy wedding ceremonies and Priyanka-Nick’s royal Jodhpur wedding still are still a topic of discussion. And just recently, Ranbir revealed in an interview that he and Alia would have been married had the pandemic not hit their lives. “It would have been sealed had the pandemic not hit our lives. I don’t want to jinx it by saying anything. I want to tick-mark that goal very soon in my life,” said Ranbir in an interview with Rajeev Masand.
(The part where he talks about Alia is at 27:00 and 29:00 minutes. You can thank us later.)
And if rumors are to be believed, another fan-favorite couple Varun Dhawan & Natasha Dalal also postponed their marriage because of the pandemic. The duo was supposed to be married in the first half of 2020, that’s when Covid-19 hit our lives. Since Varun is a Punjabi, a small intimate wedding wouldn’t have sufficed for him and his family. It’s going to be a big fat Punjabi wedding, whenever it happens, which according to tabloids and strong sources is January 24.
David Dhawan and Karuna Dhawan, Varun’s parents have sent out e-invites to guests and family members to block the dates between 22nd and 25th January. Apparently, the 22nd and 23rd are going to be mehendi and sangeet ceremonies, followed by a wedding on 24th and reception on the 25th.
“I just received an e-invite and I am happy that finally, it’s happening. You might see many b-towners heading to Alibaug to attend David Dhawan’s son Varun Dhawan’s wedding. It’s going to be a big fat Punjabi wedding with all the wedding festivities,” revealed a close source to Dhawan’s family.
Rumors of Varun Dhawan and Natasha Dalal have been swirling for two years. The speculation of marriage is on the cards further caught fire when Natasha was seen celebrating Karva Chauth with Varun’s mother in November last year. The couple has made several public appearances over the years, with Natasha being the spotlight in many of Varun’s stories on celebratory days of the year like New Year’s or Diwali.
Varun & Natasha Are High-School Sweethearts
Varun & Natasha have known each other since school days, and have been close friends since. It was only later when she moved away that they realized what they had is more than just friendship. They kept their relationship hushed in the start but started opening up in the last few years. Here are some sweet words Varun said about his lady love on Koffee With Karan,” “I’m with her [Natasha] because she has her own individuality, she has her own voice which is super strong, with things she wants to do and things she wants to achieve in life. And, as her partner, that is something I want to support, you know. And, she has been so supportive where my career is concerned, always, from day one actually.”
On the work front, Dhawan’s comedy-drama Coolie No.1 just released in December 2019, and he is now shooting for a multi-starer movie Jug Jugg Jeeyo, scheduled to release in 2021. His lady love, Natasha, is a renowned fashion designer and runs her Mumbai-based eponymous label. Their marriage would certainly be a pleasant surprise for us all. Right now, all we can do is wait and see what happens in the next ten days.
Other celebrity weddings we can look forward to in 2021:
Ranbir Kapoor & Alia Bhatt:
Ranbir has already confirmed he is waiting to marry his ‘overachiever girlfriend’ Alia soon. This New Year’s, the power couple headed to Rajasthan with their families, which could also be a wedding-venue hunting trip. The state is host to many royal palaces, and it wouldn’t be a surprise if they chose one of them as the hub for their nuptials.
Arjun Rampal & Gabriella Demtriades:
Arjun Rampal has been dating South-African model Gabriella for over two years now. They welcomed their first child, a boy, in 2019. The couple hasn’t spoken about each other in public but have been vocal on social media. Considering they have been going strong and even have a baby together, marriage could be on the cards soon.
Farhan Akhtar & Shibani Dandekar:
Bollywood’s do-it-all Farhan Akhtar has been dating the 40-year old singer for around 2 years now. The latter was the one who made their relationship public by posting a picture of herself and Akhtar on Instagram. They’ve been quite vocal about them dating since, but have denied the marriage rumors strongly. Guess fans will have to just wait and watch.
Sushmita Sen & Rohman Shawl:
Sushmita is a true beauty, inside and out. Who wouldn’t want to have this woman in her life? Model Rohman Shawl messaged her on Instagram to try his luck and woo Sen and she replied. Rest is history. The charming couple has been together since and the model also shares a close bond with her daughters. We’d love to see our diva as a bride, let’s hope 2021 is the year.
Malaika Arora & Arjun Kapoor:
Their age-gap has sparked some nasty gossip already. As we move towards a fair-minded and acceptable society in 2021, the media and fans have gone slow on these headlines and embraced their beautiful love story with an open mind. Both Kapoor and Arora are quite fond of each other and even spoke about marriage on different chat shows. May God bless us with a stunning Malaika walking down the aisle this year.
