Their love story is not less than a fairy tale, and they made us believe that true love can be conquered with patience and respect. Shoaib and Dipika first met on the sets of Sasural Simar Ka and instantly felt the connection. However, it was Dipika, who had resisted acknowledging her feelings as she was already in an unhappy marriage with Raunak Mehta.
But Shoaib had an immense amount of patience as he waited for his muse, Dipika to sort her life out. And the rest, as we say, is all history!. Currently, the duo has been fasting as the Islamic holy month of Ramzan has already begun. On May 11, 2019, Dipika took to her Instagram handle to share an adorable picture with Shoaib from the Iftari meal. She captioned the picture as, “Iftaari together @shoaib2087”, followed by heart emojis. Take a look at the picture below:
Coming back to their love story, in an interview, Dipika had spilled beans of her relationship. She 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.” (Also Read: Kareena Kapoor Khan Reveals First Question She Asked Doctor When Taimur Ali Khan Was Born)
She had further added, “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 an interview with The Times of India, Shoaib had talked about the post-marriage changes, and had said, “I really can’t express it in words but there's a constant happy feeling. Now when you get late at work, you feel bad and want to rush home.” Dipika had also revealed the changes that came after the wedding, and had stated, “I can't put the feelings in words. I have noticed the change from the day I have got married. I initially thought it's ok Shoaib and I have been in a relationship for so long, but nothing has changed. Maybe the way I look at him, the respect towards him has grown. It's a priceless feeling.”
Before her wedding to Shoaib, Dipika got converted to Islam to get married to the love of her life. After a lot of speculations, the actress had confirmed the news to The Times of India, and had revealed, “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.” (Don't Miss: Erica Fernandes And Parth Samthaan's Vacation Pics Prove They're Made For Each Other)
