Bollywood A-listers Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh have released the first pictures from their highly-anticipated wedding, much to the delight of adoring fans around the world.

The actors – two of the Indian film industry's biggest names – tied the knot in a private ceremony at Lake Como in Italy, according to media reports in their home country.

They released two photographs later on Thursday on their social media channels, captioned simply with heart emojis.

The stunning shots showed the celebrity couple beaming while wearing traditional Indian wedding attire by designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee.

Padukone and Singh caused a stir last month after announcing their engagement and ending months of speculation about their relationship.

Fans were unable to contain their excitement with the stars' names trending in India along with the hashtag #DeepveerKiShaadi – or "Deepveer's wedding".

Copenhagen-born Padukone, 32, is one of Bollywood's highest-paid stars and one of a select few to break into Hollywood after she starred in xXx: Return of Xander Cage with Vin Diesel. She has featured in 40 films since 2006.

She is also the daughter of Indian badminton player Prakash Padukone – a former world number one.

Singh, 33, rose to fame in the 2010 romantic comedy Band Baaja Baaraat and went on to appear in 14 films.

He has starred in several films alongside his new wife. They include 2013's Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela, 2014's Finding Fanny, and 2015's Bajirao Mastani. (more…)

Pete Doherty is accused of watching as his pet Huskies savaged a neighbours cat to death, reports claim.

Witnesses say they saw the Babyshambles singer with the Siberian dogs off their leads at around 9am on Monday when the attack is said to have happened.

The rockers neighbour, Penny Ward, says her eight-year-old cat Archie was dragged around like a rag doll for 10 minutes.

Penny, a retired nurse, also told The Sun: He hasnt even bothered to come around and say sorry. It is disgusting that he should be taking powerful and aggressive dogs like that for walks off their leads.

Petes Huskies were reportedly off their leash when the attack happened

He is responsible for Archies death. It could have been a child. I hope hes a better singer than a dog owner.

Sharing her grief over the loss of Archie, whom she rescued in 2010, the 70-year-old added: Archie used to follow me everywhere and sit on the dresser in the kitchen purring his head off.

It is awful. I feel so sad. I just have to keep busy to take my mind off him.

An anonymous witness says they saw the dogs running off their leads with what they initially thought to be a black bin liner in their mouths but, on closer look, realised it was a cat. (more…)
