It was a royal affair for Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh as they made their first official appearance as a married couple at their Bengaluru wedding reception on 21 November. While their lovely looks, stylish traditional attires and heartwarming chemistry obviously made headlines, there were many celebrities who arrived to bless the couple and convey their good wishes.

Badminton sensation PV Sindhu was also present at the reception in shimmering ethnic wear. Deepika’s father Prakash Padukone is also one of the most famous names in the world of badminton and Sindhu had made an appearance at a felicitation ceremony of the senior Padukone a few months ago. The Olympic silver medalist had also bonded with Ranveer recently sharing pictures and sweet words for each other after they met for the first time some months back.
Her mentor and another badminton legend Pullela Gopichand and his wife, also a badminton ace, PVV Lakshmi also arrived to celebrate along with the couple.
