On Saturday, a report in Mirror read that Farhan Akhtar and Shibani Dandekar, who have been dating for nearly two years now, are all set to tie the knot later this year. The report suggested that the two have decided to take their relationship to the next level and can get hitched before or sometime after the actor’s upcoming film Toofan. And today, Bombay Times reached out to Farhan’s father, poet and lyricist Javed Akhtar.
Talking about the wedding, Javed said, “I have just heard it from you. I was with Farhan on his birthday, which was the day before yesterday. He didn’t tell me anything about this. But you never know, children can be very secretive.” Javed also spoke about Shibani and called her a sweet girl. He said, “I have met her many times. She is a very sweet girl.”
Coming to the wedding rumours, Mirror quoted a source, that said, “The plan is to get married towards the year-end, after the release of Farhan’s next, Toofan. But they might spring a surprise by tying the knot earlier than that. The final date is yet to be decided but Farhan and Shibani have begun preparations for the big day.”
Earlier on January 9, Farhan and Shibani rang in the Bhaag Milkha Bhaag actor’s 46th birthday. He shared his birthday with Shibani’s sister, Anusha Dandekar. Shibani reffered Farhan as her “better half’. “Thank you for all the magic, laughter and love you have brought to my life. You are one of the most beautiful souls I have ever met, and the world really needs more like you! I’ve never met anyone as kind, as attentive, as selfless, as brave and as focused as you, just being around you has taught me so much (mainly patience). You inspire me! Thank you for including me in every part of your life, for making me feel so special and for always making time for ‘us’!” Shibani wrote in a heartfelt note while sharing a picture with him.
