Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt: Bollywood toasts star couple on wedding – BBC.com

Bollywood stars Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt have tied the knot in what is being dubbed one of the biggest weddings of the Indian film industry.
Many stars were among close family and friends at the low-key event, held at the couple's Mumbai home.
Their names are trending on Twitter and social media is brimming with good wishes for them.
The actors are among the most popular faces of Bollywood, with millions of fans the world over.
The wedding was confirmed by Kapoor's mother Neetu Singh – a famous Bollywood actor herself – on Wednesday. It took place at Kapoor's family home, a bungalow tucked away in the affluent Bandra neighbourhood of Mumbai.
"Today, surrounded by our family and friends, at home… in our favourite spot – the balcony we've spent the last five years of our relationship – we got married," Bhatt posted on social media.
Kapoor and Bhatt's first film together – Brahmastra – will release in theatres later this year.
Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan, their co-star in the film, took to Instagram to wish them "all the Love, Luck and Light as they gear up to embark on a very special journey in the coming days".
