Farhan Akhtar and Shibani Dandekar were seen together yesterday enjoying the Holi party hosted by none other than Farhan’s stepmom, Shabana Azmi and his father, Javed Akhtar. B-town celebrities like Divya Dutta, Rahul Bose, Rohit Roy and others were also present at the bash. Pictures and videos from the same have been going viral on social media. While Farhan donned a kurta-pyjama, Shibani put on the bohemian look by donning a tie-and-dye slip dress in monochrome. Take a look at Farhan and Shibani enjoying Holi with Javed Akhtar and Shabana Azmi:
Today, on March 22, 2019, a day after Holi, Farhan has posted a picture with his father, Javed Akhtar and adorably captioned it as, “Daddy love. #happyholi #celebration #festivalfun #jankikutir.”
Farhan and Shibani started seeing each other, a couple of years ago and it was only last year, in 2018, when reports of them dating each other started doing the rounds. A source close to the couple had recently shared with DNA, “They are extremely serious about each other and Farhan’s kids have also warmed up to Shibani, so this looks like the most obvious step for the two."
Recently, Shibani finally spoke to Mid-Day about her relationship with Farhan Akhtar. Therein, she was quoted as saying, “We are public figures, so people are entitled to say what they want to. But I don't care about their opinion. I'm aware of who I am and I'm comfortable with who I choose to date.” (Suggested Read: Tahira Kashyap Pens An Emotional Note For Daughter, Varushka Khurrana, Calls Her 'Bathroom Stalker')
She had further added, “I am not secretive, but I don't feel the need to say things out loud. It's up to me to decide when and what I want to share about my personal life, and it is up to the audience to decide how they look at it. How much information I want to put out in the public domain is my prerogative.”
Shibani's sister, Anusha Dandekar and Karan Kundra are hosting a show currently called, Love School Season 4. When contacted by SpotboyE and asked about Shibani's relationship with Farhan, Anusha replied, "Not that I know of. Maybe! But I don't know, I am an ouster (laughs)." Karan then jumped in here and said, "With Shibani, you never know. She might just turn up one day and say, “listen I am getting married." Anusha also shared that there was no one point when her sister confessed to her, her love about Farhan. She was quoted as saying, "I never asked her upfront as it's weird to question your elder sister who is she dating. You just have to figure it out. But when she informed me, I was like, "Ok, that's normal."
Farhan was earlier married to Adhuna Bhabani for over years before they decided to call it quits. The estranged couple shared an official statement on social media and the same could be read as, “This is to announce that we, Adhuna and Farhan, have mutually and amicably decided to separate. Our children remain our priority and it is immensely important to us, as responsible parents, that they be protected from unwarranted speculation and public glare. We sincerely request that we are given the privacy that is required at this time to move forward in a dignified manner.” (You May Like: Hina Khan And Rocky Jaiswal Drenched In Each Other's Love On Holi Make Us Sing 'Mohe Rang Do Laal')
