Albeit a filmy affair, it's no brainer that the affair would be anything but private. Bound to be one of the biggest weddings of the year (unless Deepika and Ranveer decide to elope), the celebrations will take place at three different venues. The Sangeet will be held at The Leela while the Mehendi is going to be held at Sonam’s 35-crore luxurious duplex apartment in Sunteck Signature Island building at Bandra Kurla Complex. The apartment is spread over 7,000 square feet and while it is is spacious enough for the Mehendi, the ceremony will be conducted in a Ballroom-like banquet area of the building.

As for the D-Day, it will be conducted at the heritage mansion of Sonam’s aunt Kavita Singh (mother Sunita’s sister) at Bandra Bandstand near Shah Rukh Khan’s bungalow Mannat. The property is reportedly 55,000 square feet and is said to be not just one of Mumbai’s, but one of the world’s most beautiful homes with a spectacular pooja room that has Ganesha statues and jharokas from the South.
