Talking about how they did not allow phones at their wedding Priyanka revealed, “Literally at my wedding, we had to take people’s phones and deposit them. So Serena Williams did this amazing thing which is like a little bag that you have. So you give people the bags, they put their phones inside and you lock it. You can keep the phone but if you ever want to use it, you have to come back to get it unlocked. We had a mobile police stand”.

Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh tied the knot on November 14, 2018, and they too maintained secrecy. Deepika had earlier stated the same and said, “The reason we asked our guests not to have cell phones was because we wanted them to be present in the moment. Usually, everyone is on their cell phones, capturing the moment. These moments should be in your mind and heart as they’re never going to come back. Every single guest, I kid you not, is so thankful. People who’ve never danced in their lives were on the dance floor. People who’ve never tasted alcohol were tasting wine. That’s how free people were. They were emotionally present there and they didn’t have any choice but to talk to each other. Since we were a small group of just uncles, aunties, cousins and friends we could ask them to leave their phones behind. Everyone who has meant something to us in our life was there. They understood where we were coming from”.
