  1. A bit too much for a temple visit. Looks like left over saree/jewels from wedding that never had a chance to be worn.

    The saree is rich and given the blouse design she should have skipped the choker. Well, I would skip both the necklaces and only keep the earring.

    • Not Loud for Tirupati visit. You should see the non famous couples seeking blessing at Tirupati. The Reddys and others from Andrea/Trlnagana willput Bollywood to shame with amount of jewelry.
      Nevertheless congratulations to the couple. They are always loud but look sweet together and seem to have a good bond and respect for each other.

      • You had me at “good bond and respect for each other”… Bang on! While we are no one to comment on what they share with each other simply because we don’t know them personally but the mutual respect between them naturally exudes. I don’t care how overwhelming the look is; I think they look drop-dead gorgeous together here. More love to them!!

  2. They both look so good. but I am still not sure..is the above look also curated? if it is then I do wish that actors/celebrities dont make everything a photo opportunity and promotion opportunity. All the time from events to airports they promote stuff. For this beautiful family event they could’ve worn anything they wanted.

      • Both smiling for photos check. Call unison of media, check.
        The outfits are great but if you wana seek blessings, just do it without any publicity, the media had their itinerary of what they doing for anniversary. They act like they are the only one married in India

  3. Thanks P&P for not “reviewing” these looks. It’s their anniversary and she chose to wear a saree that she got at the wedding, which i think is great! How many of us have worn our sarees from the wedding? I think it is best to refrain from critiquing even an anniversary look worn at a temple. This is taking it too far as far as fashion policing is concerned.

  4. I love it! I know its too much but so what… Its their anniversary i.e. a private/personal occasion. Colors are festive and they look happy. What’s not to like :)

  5. It’s a beautiful sari and the jewelry is stunning. Lot of uninformed commentary about how this is a bit much for a temple. It’s very common for women in India to be decked up for a temple visit especially if it is for a special occasion.

    • Agree. It might be too much for our personal tastes, but it does not shock me like it shocks some of the others in the forum. My mother, for example, always saves her best sarees and heaviest jewelry for temple visits. And she keeps it simple for weddings. So, this is not really out of place.

  6. Usually people wear their best to temples. Best clothes and most of the jewellery they own. Like a celebration. And this being Tirupati and Lord Venkateshwara being a rich God owing to revenue generated by gifts offered by devotees, you can imagine the wealth of devotees. And they usually come to temple this way. These two maybe relatively low key in comparison

    • So if it’s the ‘norm’ does that mean we can’t question it? Does God(if he/she/they exist) care about the splendor of the clothes and jewelry you own, or the purity of your actions and heart?
      I can understand that it’s a sign of respect when you wear your best, but there is a line between being presentable in the eyes of God, and then just being plain ostentatious.
      If this is a ‘norm’ then we need to question why it is the norm.
      Are we dressing up for bhagwanji or the people in bhagwanji’s temple? God made no such demands of us, it’s we who keep using God as an excuse for our own ego.

  7. I know a lot of non-celebrity people (especially the women) dress up wedding-like for Karva Chauth or big family pooja. So they get a pass for being OTT tho I would take out the choker for Deepika and shawl for Ranveer. What bothers me more is the photo-op part of it. They won’t even try to keep it under the radar – quite the opposite in fact.

    • You know that the shawl is given from the temple during the visit , right?Even Abisekh Bachan and others when visiting Tirupathi were seen with that trademark red silk shawl. Check old pics. Also It is customary for women to wear heavy jewellery and ornate sarees while visiting Tirupathi temple. Have seen a lot of them do it. Not all south indian temples may have visitors decked with gold, but it is considered apt to be dressed in your best when you go to the temple.

      • Why so much hate… OTT or not, they look fabulous. Considering Celebs now share insta posts for fans, why single out these 2 for the PR. ? What abt airport looks, paps covering them while lunch lunching/dining out??

  8. I loove the saree..looks so beautiful. I wish I had taken my wedding sarees out for a spin post-wedding…but again, commoners cannot wear such heavy stuff to Tirupati for darshan given the crowd, sweat, pushing-pulling and security concerns.
    They look amazing…we can critique all we want, but she looks smashing. Saree is well worn. Just the earrings look strange on Ranveer.

  9. I am surprised by the backlash they are getting in the comments here. They look happily married in love, and I actually thought they looked quite normal, – as in, how many non-celeb couples also celebrate their first anniversary all decked up in traditional attire. There’s also a photo-op criticism going around, but they were at a public place with their parents/siblings from both sides, and of course these are well-known people so why is it a shock they were photographed? Wouldn’t even non-celeb couples themselves photograph a milestone event?

    I, for one, did love both their looks from head to toe. More than anything, their radiance overshadows everything else. I am not sure if Deepika is wearing any jewelry or the saree from any of her wedding ceremonies, but regardless, she gives off a very traditional newly-wed happy Indian bride look here, so I didn’t think the look was curated or that she was showing off her celebrity status in any way.

    • Their PR informed the media in advance how they would be celebrating their first wedding anniversary, on what day and at what time they would be visiting Tirupati and the Golden Temple, and then their stylists sourced clothes from Sabya. Not just that, both their families are sporting Sabyas. So yeah, this is just a PR stunt to show what an ideal Indian couple they are and hence the backlash.

  10. Ranveer is wearing a very simple kurta-pajama. The shawl is given as a blessing after being offered to the deity. Deepika is wearing a saree which was a wedding gift and it’s a sweet gesture. They both look absolutely smashing, who cares if it’s Sabyasachi? Deepika has always had a preference for Sabyasachi for years prior to her wedding, so it’s natural she would look to him for special occasions. I have visited Tirupathi multiple times with my family and we dress our finest. Would you criticize people who wear their Sunday best to church? They are two good looking people and look very happy and in love.

    • Why do people here try so hard to make them normal or relate to them? Tired if the “why can’t they be just normal like me” comments. They are celebrities their life is anything but normal esp celebrities in India. They also walk around with body guards, and someone else to carry their handbags – so what’s this about getting make up and hair done all the time? It’s a service that they can buy on every occasion. Don’t understand why they have to be relatable to be likeable. Everyone in the comments section gets excited if celebs act simple and forego their celebrity-ness – it’s so pointless, bitter and redundant. Also there’s no stylist sourcing it, she got this saree in the gift thaali on her wedding day – it’s in the photos.

    • It’s actually quite normal amongst the richer set. And I’m talking about non-filmy people.

      I remember the first time I saw this was when my best friend was getting married and we friends went to her neighbor’s to get dressed between events.
      They had a girl come in to do hair, makeup and draping for the lady of the house and her daughters. They asked the girl to help us get dressed too. We were so excited and felt like princesses lol.

      So I would say ‘normal’ is very relative. This may not be normal for me or you but is very likely perfectly normal for a celebrity of her stature.

  11. Both look nice. The late legendary Sridevi is from Tirupati, Andhra Pradesh. She used to visit Tirupati temple every year for darshan. I miss seeing her visits.

  12. Although it’s lovely that they’re all dressed up for their anniversary, I wish they tone it down a notch. It sure is common in the south to wear grand sarees this is definitely in the OTT zone. Also, minus the necklaces plus a bindi would have been so much better.

  13. This is not loud or bit much. yes she could have skipped one of the two necklaces but its a red saree with jewelry. It’s their anniversary and they look happy and in love and visited a temple. I am schocked at the heart burn displayed in the comments. Someone said they are travelling with hair dressers. really? I am not sure they told you that. They travelled with their parents and these pics can come from anyone’s camera. I think people should just chill.

  14. In my opinion you guys shouldn’t be posting about how someone prefers to dress to a place of worship.
    Now don’t say that you post because they chose to pose, coz the Indian media is just shameless and has no respect for their privacy. You guys should at least draw the line.

  15. My thoughts match all the comments above. It’s all so confusing. They look cute together, but it is curated. It’s nice to take blessings from whomsoever is equipped to but then PR….media and shaadi ka bacha khucha kappa and where is the Bindi ! Bindi kahan hain ??? But then leave them alone. Let them be. But but … their golden temple looks. Anyway happy anniversary! Yawn. Who cares ? We certainly don’t seem to. Chalo ji let’s get back to our routine now. Tamasha over.

  16. This was the saree gifted to her during the wedding . In one of the wedding pictures you can see her holding it . It is her First Anniversary not like she dressed this way ( or dresses) when she went to temple after the wedding.
    Claws are out ??
    P&P must be happy that DeepVeer are being bashed.
    No wishes for them eh? ?

  17. I really don’t see the point of this post! You have chosen not to review it because well it is a private occasion and a temple visit, so why bother posting at all.

    • This, 100 % agreed! Why is this considered OTT but Rani wearing practically all her jewelry to a durga puja pandal gets a pass? I’m not dissing either, but to be clear, to each their own.

  18. Also to everyone cribbing about Deepika taking her entourage with her. Well, they are like family to her. Her driver has been with her since her first movie 2007 OSO and her bodyguard too.
    She also repeated (and repeat) her clothes a lot. For Golden Temple visit she wore the same sabya ensemble that she wore for her after party.

  20. These Bollywood stars have become PR machines sadly . This is such a private moment , their first anniversary but they made it into a spectacle . Every look is curated and hair & makeup is immaculate . I don’t blame p&p for not commenting lol

  21. Well as seen in other social media and Instagram posts, DP has chosen to wear one of her sarees from her wedding and the Kurta too from her wedding. Happy to see her repeat her clothes. Must be special and sentimental to her. Maybe it’s her personal choice. As a celebrity they get photographed whenever they step out of the house. No matter where they go the paps are behind them. So I guess they have to maintain a certain image, so they look curated

  22. Wow they sure get bashing over PR photos. While many get away. Ever read so much about Priyanka’s PR gimmicks. And how the press is ever ready to capture multiple cute videos of Taimur and his mom. The timing is perfect for them.
    PnP your passive aggressive bias is clearly visible. I think they are trying to please a certain Bollywood crowd with Deepveer hate and doing a good job.
