Pop star Katy Perry and comedian Russell Brand will wed in a Hindu ceremony at a luxury hotel in Jaipur, India next weekend, according to the latest U.S. report.

They will return to the country where they became engaged on New Year’s Eve in 2009 to exchange vows in front of 85 family and friends at the Taj Rambagh Palace resort on 23 October.

Perry’s pal Rihanna let slip earlier this year the loved-up pair would marry in India, but the comments were swiftly dismissed by the I Kissed A Girl hitmaker.

However, the New York Post’s gossip column Page Six has backed up Rihanna’s claims and allege the wedding party will be treated to a tiger safari at the Aman-i-Khas, near the Ranthambore National Park in Rajasthan, for a three-day adventure before the nuptials take place.

Brand recently admitted the wedding would be taking place “soon”, although he refused to name an exact date.
