Farhan Akhtar and Shibani Dandekar have been painting the town red since a long time. The couple keeps sharing mushy pictures on their respective Instagram handles, giving us an insight into their adorable relationship. Recently, rumours were abuzz that Farhan and Shibani are planning to get married this year. When Farhan’s father and lyricist Javed Akhtar was asked to comment on the same, he said that he was completely unaware of it.
''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 told The Times Of India in an interview. He showered praise on Shibani and said, “I have met her many times. She is a very sweet girl.''
A Mumbai Mirror report claimed that Farhan and Shibani plan to get married this year. ''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,'' it quoted a source as saying.
Farhan and Shibani have been in a relationship for almost two years now. Spilling beans about their relationship and flaunting it on social media, Farhan had recently said, "We've been getting to know each other and I couldn't be happier about it. But with the social media world again, we are constantly being told about the things we should be doing (laughs). But ya, I have never felt so comfortable to share my personal stuff but I don't know, I just feel like somehow with celebrating all this, it just feels very natural to me."
When Shibani was recently asked about her relationship with Farhan, she had said, "I think a picture speaks a thousand words. When I post something, it's there for the people to see. I don't think you need to write a caption or say something; it's there in the picture(s). Whatever is there is what you want to take and make from it... I don't think we are going out about to hide anything or announce anything. It is what it is."
Farhan and Shibani made their relationship official at Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh's Mumbai wedding reception by making an appearance together. They walked in holding hands and posed for the paps.
