The entire schedule of romantic comedy "Ghanchakkar" is said to have been planned in accordance to its lead actress Vidya Balan's real life wedding plans.

In fact, her work in "Ghanchakkar" is being rush-completed in time for her wedding preparations. She is reportedly tying the knot with Siddharth Roy Kapur, managing director - Studios, Disney UTV, this month.

"It seems Vidya and Mr.Kapoor had chalked out the wedding plans long in advance. The only film that Vidya is currently shooting is 'Ghanchakkar'. And since it is produced by UTV, it was convenient to co-ordinate her shooting schedule with her wedding date," said a source.

After this, Vidya would take a longish sabbatical before returning to work, the source added.

Vidya's work in "Ghanchakkar" will be over after the three-day shooting.

"It was all planned well in advance. The director Rajkumar Gupta, who is a very dear friend of Vidya and Emraan Hashmi, whom Vidya gets along with like a house on fire, has fully co-operated in ensuring Vidya completes her work in 'Ghanchakkar' before she takes time off," said the source.

When contacted, Gupta was in the middle of his brother's wedding festivities.

He admitted he had to rush back to Mumbai for the final three days' shooting.

"Yes, we've to shoot from Dec 12-15. After that I've one week-long schedule in January. But Vidya is not required for that," he said.

Asked if the schedules had to be worked out in-sync with Vidya's wedding plans, he got evasive, and said: "The schedules were worked out well in advance, so that Vidya's work was completed by the middle of December. Vidya has been with the project all through, giving a hundred percent of herself."
