While we are aware of the fact that it often happens to be the case where celebrities get hitched in an intimate ceremony and only tell their fans later, we had to check if this news about Vicky Kaushal and Katrina Kaif's roka was true or not.

Here Is The Fact Check:

From what we have found out, Katrina had worn the red lehenga to a friend's Diwali party. It was the first time she was seen with Vicky, who was dressed in white traditional wear, and was also attending the mutual friend's party. This outing of their's sparked off dating rumours for the first time.

But it's completely up to me if I wish to share. I am not comfortable opening up my personal life for discussion. It’s important to me that I guard the good things,” he had told Mid-Day. Vicky Kaushal And Katrina Kaif's Dating Confirmation Leads To Twitterati Sharing Funny Memes and Jokes On Salman Khan And Ranbir Kapoor.
