Several unconfirmed reports claim that stars such as Shah Rukh Khan, Farah Khan and Sanjay Leela Bhansali, who were due to attend Deepika and Ranveer’s wedding, will skip the ceremony.
Strict policy of wedding photos
The security measures at the locations of the events have been compared with the measures provided by the world leaders, with interceptors of drones in the sky and the guests must wear special wristbands and scan unique QR codes on their phones to be able to enter. Of course, the photos have been hard to come by.
According to reports, the guests had to wear a special wristband and cover the lenses of the cameras of their mobile phones with decals. Boats were also made to patrol the lake to keep out eager photographers and gossip hunters.
