When rumours of Katrina Kaif and Vicky Kaushal's upcoming wedding started swirling around, many were surprised to learn the two had been dating. The couple managed to keep their relationship under wraps for the longest time - they have rarely been spotted or photographed together, have never officially confirmed their relationship and have carefully avoided any mention of each other on their Instagram accounts - for the most part. A quick scroll through Vicky Kaushal's Instagram, in fact, confirms that the only time he shared a post for his soon-to-be-wife was when she launched her brand, Kay Beauty by Katrina, in 2019.
In October 2019, Vicky Kaushal had posted a congratulatory message for Katrina Kaif on Instagram. "Congratulations @katrinakaif and all the very best for @kaybykatrina... Shine On!" he had written while sharing the promotional video of Kay Beauty by Katrina.
Vicky Kaushal and Katrina Kaif will get married on December 9 at the Six Senses Resort in Sawai Madhopur, Rajasthan. Much like their dating life, very little is know about their upcoming wedding - but several reports suggest that the couple has a strict no-phones and no-photos policy in place. Vicky and Katrina have reportedly taken several measures to ensure privacy during wedding festivities - including secret codes with which guests can access the venue and security arrangements by Salman Khan's private bodyguard, Shera.
For her part, Katrina has rarely mentioned Vicky Kaushal on social media, aside from Instagram Stories to wish him on his birthday.
Back in May, Katrina had shared an Instagram Story wishing Vicky on his 33rd birthday. Screenshots of the now-expired Story are still floating around online:
Last year, Vicky Kaushal had also shared an Instagram Story for Katrina on her birthday. The actor posted a picture of Katrina Kaif on his Instagram Story and he wrote: "Happy birthday, Katrina Kaif".
Aside from this, their interactions on Instagram have been few and far between - although Katrina did share a post in support of Vicky's film Bhoot in January 2020, as well as an Instagram Story to promote Uri: The Surgical Strike when it was released.
Vicky Kaushal and Katrina Kaif flew from Mumbai to Rajasthan on Monday evening. The couple will reportedly get married tomorrow, and their mehendi ceremony is scheduled for today.
Guests at the wedding include Katrina Kaif's Ek Tha Tiger director Kabir Khan and his wife Mini Mathur, Neha Dhupia and Angad Bedi, as well as actress Sharvari Wagh, who is rumoured to be dating Vicky's brother Sunny.
