Deepika Padukone reveals the reason behind no-phone policy at wedding with Ranveer Singh, says 'we wanted guests to be present in the moment'


Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone's wedding in 2018 was one of the most talked-about events. Away from media attention, the couple tied the knot in Italy’s Lake Como on November 14 and 15, 2018. The ceremony took place according to Konkani and Sindhi rituals with only close friends and family members in attendance. Ranveer and Deepika, for their big day, asked the guests to leave behind their phones. 

Now, in an interview with an entertainment magazine, Deepika revealed the reason behind their 'no-phone policy'. The actress said that privacy was secondary for the couple and they wanted the guests to be present in the moment rather than capturing the moment. "Privacy was secondary. The reason we asked our guests not to have cell phones was because we wanted them to be present in the moment. Usually, everyone is on their cell phones, capturing the moment," Deepika said.

Deepika further added that due to the no-phone policy, the guests lived the moment to the fullest and are thankful for it. "These moments should be in your mind and heart as they’re never going to come back. Every single guest, I kid you not, is so thankful. People who’ve never danced in their lives were on the dance floor. People who’ve never tasted alcohol were tasting wine. That’s how free people were," Deepika added. 

The actress shared that the guests at the wedding were emotionally present and didn’t have any choice but to talk to each other. "Since we were a small group of just uncles, aunties, cousins and friends we could ask them to leave their phones behind. Everyone who has meant something to us in our life was there. They understood where we were coming from," she told.

Deepika will share the screen space with Ranveer for the first time after marriage in Kabir Khan's '83. According to reports, the actress has a song in her husband's film Cirkus directed by Rohit Shetty.
