Mumbai: As the buzz around Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt’s wedding gets louder, close friends Ayan Mukerji and Karan Johar Wednesday added grist to the rumour mills with their Instagram posts, one with a “gift” to the couple as they embark on a “sacred journey” and the other cheering “new beginnings”.
The gift by Mukerji was a teaser of a romantic track from his upcoming movie “Brahmastra”, which stars the couple and is produced by Johar.
Though the couple has maintained secrecy around their wedding date, the festivities will reportedly begin Wednesday with a ‘mehendi’ ceremony to be attended by family and close friends.
Ranbir and Alia began dating while filming “Brahmastra”, which has been in the making for eight years.
Mukerji took to Instagram to share a video of the song “Kesariya”, which features the stars romancing in the lanes of Varanasi.
“For Ranbir and for Alia! And… For this sacred journey they are going to embark on soon! Ranbir and Alia… My closest and dearest people in this world… My happy place, and my safe place… Who have added everything to my life… And given themselves completely and selflessly to our movie!
“We just had to share a piece of their union, from our movie, from our song Kesariya, to celebrate them… As a gift to them, and to everyone,” the filmmaker wrote.
The video ends with a message from the team of “Brahmastra” wishing the couple “all the love and light”.
“Wishing that the best of energies and all the blessings, all the joy and all the purity, surround them as they enter an amazing new chapter of life, together forever,” Mukerji wrote.
Filmmaker Johar shared the same teaser on his Instagram page and wrote, “Love is light and I know the amount of light you have brought into each other’s and our lives with your love. To new beginnings and more #RanbirKapoor @aliaabhatt #brahmastra”
Though the families of both the stars have remained tight-lipped about the wedding, preparations seem to be in full swing.
An apartment in the Bandra building “Vastu” where the couple lives on different floors was decorated with lights on Tuesday evening while the Kapoor family’s Chembur sprawling bungalow was also decked up with flowers and lights.
A battery of media persons have been camping outside the Vasu apartment complex.
Ranbir’s sister, Riddhima Kapoor Sahni, arrived with her family from Delhi on Tuesday where photographers and journalists flooded her with queries about when the wedding was actually taking place.
“We shall meet soon,” the designer said at the airport.
Adding to the speculation, Ranbir’s mother Neetu Kapoor on Wednesday went down memory lane about her own engagement to the late Rishi Kapoor in 1979.
“Fond memories of baisakhi day as we got engaged 43 years back on 13th April 1979,” the veteran actor wrote on Instagram.
