We have always said that if we look at the brighter side, the lockdown was a blessing in disguise as it had given us a chance to do what we didn't have time for earlier. Some have pursued their hobbies of dancing, painting, reading, gardening, learning something new, some who live alone have struggled to cook a meal rather than just a packet of Maggi. Some, who live with their family, have channelled their inner chefs and treated their clan with culinary adventures. From crispy samosas, mouth-watering gol gappe, fuss-free pancake, never-disappointing dosa, staple dal to cheesy pasta, we have realised that everything can be made at home. Even the celebs are no different when it comes to cooking at home. (Also Read: Genelia Deshmukh Shares The Importance Of Her Sons Riaan And Rahyl Experiencing The Life Amid Nature)
Dipika Kakar Ibrahim has been enjoying her bahu role at home and feels blessed to have her dream come true of living like a perfect housewife. Dipika had married her Sasural Simar Ka co-star, Shoaib Ibrahim in a nikaah ceremony in February 2018 and since then, the lovebirds have made their fans believe in the importance of family and the essence of respect in love. Dipika and Shoaib's journey of happily ever after is not just about them, but their entire family, including their respective families.
Dipika Kakar Ibrahim has channelled her inner chef and has baked cakes for her hubby, Shoaib Ibrahim's birthday, her parents-in-law's birthdays and her siblings-in-law's birthdays. Dipika had also cooked Eid meals, biryani, daal baat choorma and a lot more for her family. On her parents-in-law's anniversary on June 24, 2020, Dipika baked a yummylicious cake for them and her sister-in-law, Saba is all praises for her bhabhi. Posting a picture of the cake, Saba wrote, "Ammi papa ki shaadi ki anniversary. Our itna acha cake kaun bana sakta hai... Sirf aur sirf bhabhi @ms.dipika" atop it. Saba also posted a picture of Shoaib clicking the photo of the cake as their ammi and papa are all set to cut it.

To wish Shoaib, his sister, Saba had written, "Happy birthday bhai.. @shoaib2087 Bas aur iske aage kuch nai kehna.. kyuki aap jante ho aap kya mayne rakhte ho humare liye, hum sab ke liye. Main apne sare instagram ke dosto se yeh request karna chahugi ke aap sab bhai se yuhi pyar karte rahein. (because your love and support means a lot to him, he feels so happy when you send him wishes and appreciate his hardwork, Wo aap sabke messages padhte hain khush hote hain aur hum sab ko bhi sunate hain khushi se) humesha apni dua mein bhai ko yaad rakhein. Allah unhe acha rakhein ,unko kamyab karein.. ( kyuki wo aaj jo bhi hain aap sabki duaayen usme shamil hain) Please please please always remember him in you prayers Because a person like him deserves all the happiness. Love, Saba."
A few days ago, Shoaib Ibrahim’s sister and Dipika Kakar Ibrahim’s sister-in-law, Saba Ibrahim had posted a video on her YouTube page, where her bhaiya and bhabhi had answered some questions sent by their fans. Narrating an incident from her lockdown diaries, Dipika had revealed that she had made a dupatta for her ammi and while she hadn’t expected her mother-in-law to wear it on Eid, she was touched by her sweet gesture. Calling herself blessed, Dipika had recalled, "Ammi ke liye maine ek dupatta banaya tha lockdown ke period me and much bilkul nahi laga tha ki ammi vo Eid pe pehenengi. Kyunki amma ke paas usse bohot better suits naye rakhe hue hai jo unko pehenne ka mauka nahi mila. But she took that effort of wearing that with an old kurta kyunki maine bana ke diya tha. Toh unhone meri feeling ki respect ki. Bilkul isi tarah ek family aage badhri hai. I'm just blessed." Watch the video and you’ll understand how Dipika and Shoaib find themselves blessed to have each other and their family by their side.
A couple of days after Eid, Dipika Kakar Ibrahim had reposted a picture with her sister-in-law, who is more like a sister to her, Saba Ibrahim. Dressed in beautiful traditional outfits for Eid celebrations, Dipika had captioned her post with why every girl deserves a nanad like Saba. Dipika had written, “Mai har baar yahi kehti hun aur aaj bhi yahi kahungi ki Tujh Jaisi Nanad har ladki ko milni chahiye. I didn't have a younger sister and you've come in my life & filled up that space unconditionally. Aur jo bhi aata hai wo karne ka maza aur bhi zyaada hota hota hai jab sabke chehre par khushi aur appreciation dikhe. You all dont leave a chance to appreciate. #blessedbeyondmeasure #allhamdulillah Repost @saba_ka_jahaan with @make_repost Koi aisa kaam hai jo apko nai aata hai?? Sirf main hi nai har koi aapke jaisa banna chahta hai. @ms.dipika #bhabhijaan #familyfirst #familylove #eidpics #pyaribhabhi #india #mumbai #instagram #eid #eid2020 #love #truelove #bestfreindsforever.” (Also Read: Chahatt Khanna Finally Removes Her Ex-Husband, Farhan's Name Tattoo, Revamps And Flaunts The New One)
