In the year 2011, when we first saw Shoaib Ibrahim and Dipika Kakar in hit Colours show, Sasural Simar Ka, little did we know that their on-screen romance will turn into a real-life love story. They had made headlines when they said 'qubool hai' in February 2018, but also raised quite a few eyebrows when Dipika chose Islam as her religion to marry Shoaib. But as we say, all is fair in love and war, and this was pure love. (Recommend Read: Soha Ali Khan's Daughter, Inaaya Is Already An Animal Lover And Her Latest Picture Will Prove It)
Shoaib and Dipika grew closer while working together, however, Dipika was already married back then. But in the year 2015, Dipika had a bitter divorce from her ex-husband, Raunak Mehta. And that's when she found love again in Shoaib and she decided to take the leap of faith and give marriage a second chance.
Currently, the couple is in a happy zone and keep their fans updated with snippets of their life. Yesterday, on July 27, 2019, Shoaib took Dipika for the first time on his bike and the weather got just amazing for a perfect chai. The actor took to his Instagram handle and shared a couple of pictures with his lady love, and wrote, "Perfect weather it was for her first ride on my bike and our perfect chai!" In the pictures, we can see Shoaib and Dipika twinning in white. Take a look at it below:
Coming back to their love story, in an interview with The Times of India, Dipika had talked about her budding love, and had shared, "I wanted to be sure that this relationship wasn’t on the rebound. Also, we were getting to know each other better. No matter how progressive we become, being a divorcee has some kind of a social stigma attached to it in our society. I had that stamp on me. But he gave me that space and despite being aware of my past, never complained about it. He has in fact always respected that. Coming from a small town, even his parents never let me feel that. I have always longed for family. Ammi sends dabba for me when my mother is not there. I feel I am more close to his mom than him. Everything is positive and we are more at peace now."

In another interview, Dipika had confirmed about changing her religion to marry the love of her life, and had stated, "Joh sach hai woh hai (Truth is the truth). It's true I have done it, but why and when I have done it, don't think it needs to be talked about. I think it is a very personal matter and I don't think I need to talk about it openly in front of the media. For the audience and media, we are actors have always shared everything. All our happy moments we have shared with you all, but this I think is a very personal space and I don't give anyone the permission to enter the space. Definitely, it is true and I am not denying it. I am very happy and proud that I have done it for myself and my happiness. My family was with me in this decision and my intentions were to hurt anyone. This is my decision."
