Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh, who tied the knot on November 14 and 15 at Villa del Balbianello, Lake Como in Italy, have landed in a controversy over their Anand Karaj ceremony.
Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone are now officially married. The two got married in two ceremonies – Konkani and Sindhi.
The two make for a perfect couple and we cannot stop looking at their pictures. Fans were overjoyed when the couple shared the official photos from their fairytale wedding in Italy. For the Anand Karaj, the theme was red. Controversy has come down knocking at the doors of DeepVeer as according to Italian Sikh Organisation, the ceremony wasn’t held according to the rituals.
So what is the Anand Karaj ceremony? Anand Karaj literally means ‘Blissful Union’.
The ceremony takes place at the Gurudwara prayer hall during the daytime or during afternoons. The bride and the groom sit side-by-side with bride sitting on the left side of the groom, facing the Guru Granth Sahib. In the case of DeepVeer, the rituals weren’t done at the Gurudwara. This hasn’t gone down too well with the organisation.
According to Sukhdev Singh Kang, Indian Sikh Community Italy President, the Akal Takht ‘hukumnama’ sternly prohibits taking Guru Granth Sahib to a place other than a gurdwara. According to The Tribune, Kang also said that he would be writing to Akal Takht Jathedar for necessary action.
He told the Tribune, “It was a major lapse on the part of the gurudwara management.” Bhai Narinder Singh, a “hazoori raagi” of the Golden Temple, flew from Amritsar to perform the wedding ceremony in Italy.
