For her nikaah ceremony with Shoaib Ibrahim, Dipika Kakar had not only converted to Islam but had also added ‘Ibrahim’ to her name post-wedding. Shoaib and Dipika became an inspiration for not letting their cultural boundaries win over love. They came from different worlds to make a unique one of their own! And the fun part is that you not only get to enjoy the best of both worlds, but different culture and religion also means that you get to celebrate the festivals, which were only a holiday for you before.
Dipika Kakar Ibrahim has been celebrating Eid and similar festivals with immense fervour with her husband, Shoaib Ibrahim and in-laws. A while back, Dipika posted a picture with Shoaib, wherein she could be seen dressed in a printed red suit with traditional green bangles. She captioned her post as “Dressed in what I love for the evening of happiness!! Eid Mila-dun-Nabi Mubarak!!!” followed by hearts. Shoaib posted a solo picture of himself and wrote, “Chaaron taraf noor chhaya, Aaqa ka milad aaya. #eidmiladunnabi.”
On June 5, 2019, Shoaib Ibrahim had delighted his fans with an Eid special picture with his beautiful wife, Dipika Kakar Ibrahim and had wished their fans ‘Eid Mubarak’. While Shoaib had looked dapper in a blue kurta and bandhala jacket, Dipika had mesmerised us in her bright yellow coloured suit. Shoaib and Dipika in one frame were a treat to eyes.
Eid-ul-Fitr 2019 was very special for Dipika Kakar Ibrahim and Shoaib Ibrahim, courtesy they had welcomed a new member in their family. Shoaib had always wanted to own a Ducati, a luxury superbike and his dream had gotten fulfilled on Eid. Shoaib couldn’t take his eyes off his new bike, which costs not less than a whopping 54 lakh, and he had posed along with his wife, Dipika and sister, Saba with the new arrival. Sharing the good news, Shoaib had written, “The dream that every boy carries has turned into reality for me today!!!!!! Thank you Allah for everything #ducati #ducatiindia #panigalev4 #ducatiinfinitymumbai.” (Also Read: Janhvi Kapoor Wishes Dad, Boney Kapoor On 64th Birthday With Unseen Pictures And A Heartfelt Message)
It was in 2018 when Dipika Kakar Ibrahim had observed her first Ramzan and had celebrated her first Eid post-marriage with her in-laws and husband, Shoaib Ibrahim. Dipika had shared a video in which she was posing with Shoaib, flaunting her Eid mehendi and playfully teasing him with it. But her Eid celebrations didn’t go well with the netizens and soon, people started targeting her for converting her religion. Here’s the video that she had shared and screenshots of the comments:
In an interview with Hindustan Times, Dipika Kakar Ibrahim had reacted to the trolls and people who have targeted her for converting to Islam for marriage. Slamming the haters, Dipika had said, “Why do I owe an explanation to you for my personal decision? Why do you expect that I will live my life on your terms and conditions? How are you even related to me? Just because I’m an actor and you get to know about my personal life doesn’t give you the right to abuse me or slam me whenever you feel like. Shame on you.”
Confirming her conversion to Islam to the Times Of India, Dipika Kakar Ibrahim had then informed, “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.” (Also Read: Isha Ambani, Shloka Mehta, Radhika Merchant Were The Showstoppers At A Family Pre-Wedding Bash)
