The last big wedding of this year has taken place with Bollywood actor Vidya Balan getting married to UTV CEO Siddharth Roy Kapur in South Indian and Punjabi traditions. The wedding took place at the well-decorated Green Mile bungalow in Bandra, contrary to earlier reports of a temple wedding in Chembur.
The wedding rituals went on for over an hour at Green Mile Bungalow in the presence of family members of the bride and groom.
Pretty bride Vidya wore a bright red south Indian silk saree with heavy gold ornaments while posing for photographers after the wedding. She was also wearing Punjabi-style chooda (wedding bangles) in her hands. Siddharth wore a yellow embroidered kurta. The food served was South Indian.
The 34-year-old Bollywood actor underwent three changes in costume during the wedding ceremony, one of them being a mustard saree with a pink blouse, matching the groom’s yellow kurta and pink turban.

Madhur Bhandarkar tweeted: “My heart filled wishes to buddy Siddharth Roy Kapoor & Vidya Balan for the new phase of their lives together. Congratulations to the beautiful couple.”
Since this is quite a private and low-key affair, early reports suggested that the marriage had taken place at 4.45 am at the Sri Subramania temple in Chembur. However, it now seems that preparations for the ceremony were happening at a bungalow in Bandra.
