The hide and seek got over as newly wed Bollywood couple Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh finally made their public appearance together as they arrived in India, Sunday morning. DeepVeer, as they are fondly called, were clicked at Mumbai airport. Deepika looked goregous as the new bride as she wore a cream suit paired with a silk red dupatta and heavy traditional jewellery.

Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh got married in the far and dreamy Lake Como setting in Italy on November 14 (as Konkani style) and November 15 (North Indian style). After two days of wedding ceremonies, the couple unveiled their first look as a married couple to the public on Thursday evening (November 15), immensely pleasing their army of fans.
Both Deepika and Ranveer shared two images - one each from their four-hour-long ceremony according to Konkani traditions on Wednesday and a North Indian style nuptial on Thursday. In one picture, the two are laughing away, sharing a jovial moment during the Konkani wedding, and in another photograph from the celebration on Thursday they are all ears for each other. Deepika looked resplendent on both occasions, dressed in Sabyasachi Mukherjee ensembles rooted in tradition as she chose red and gold as her primary colours.
For the North Indian style wedding, Deepika's head was covered with an ornate dupatta with the words 'Sada Saubhagyavati Bhavah' embroidered on it, while Ranveer matched up in a colour co-ordinated sherwani. Ranveer wore pristine white for the Konkani wedding, which marked the culmination of a six year-long love story that began on the sets of the 2013 film "Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela".
The couple's film fraternity friends Farah Khan, Katrina Kaif, Farhan Akhtar, Priyanka Chopra, Alia Bhatt, Hrithik Roshan and Parineeti Chopra were among several others to extend congratulatory messages. Unlike most celebrity weddings which keep fans engrossed with social media updates, the 'no pictures, no phones, no drones policy' of the actors' grand destination wedding left the media and fans yearn for a glimpse of the couple or the celebrations.
That, apart from some long, wide angle shots and some hazy videos from the wedding revelry, is all that people could get their eyes on. The celebrations were as private as it could get. With a guest list of around 40, Deepika and Ranveer chose Northern Italy's Lombardy region, a resort area known for its spectacular scenery as the backdrop for their wedding. They were successful in hiding themselves from onlookers, using their umbrellas. Mobile phones were not allowed outside people's rooms and there were boats patrolling the lake for drones as part of the three-level security plan for the wedding.
