A while back, a mystery man, whose silhouette looked almost like Farhan Akhtar in host-cum-singer, Shibani Dandekar's post, made her fans go crazy with the guessing game going on just right! And a few days later, Farhan Akhtar too, took to his Instagram handle and posted the same picture which finally confirmed that all-red love bubbles are brewing between the duo!

And ever since, there has been no looking back for the couple, when it comes to public declaration of love for each other. A few days back, Farhan wrote a beautiful poem for his lady-love, while posting a couple picture. The same could be read as, “Tum muskuraado zaraa…Chiraag jalaado zaraa…andhera hataado zaraa…roshni phailaado zaraa @shibanidandekar.” And in reply to the Gully Boy producer’s post, sharing the same picture, Shibani wrote, “I’m not good with the poetry so imma go with ... wedding vibes with my Foo..my sister’s wedding just to be clear!@faroutakhtar.” So adorable, aren’t they?
After Shibani’s sister’s wedding, Apeksha Dandekar, and the humongous success of Farhan-produced, Gully Boy, the couple is off to an exotic beach vacay! From “Four feet from paradise” pictures, to boomerangs of Farhan’s ‘yapping’, dreamy swing pictures, walking along the shore together, the following set of pictures will make you want to leave your work desk, pack your bags and head off for a vacay with your sweetheart! Here you go:
In September, Shibani and Farhan had enjoyed a quiet trek to Vancouver. Both Farhan and Shibani had taken to Instagram to post amazing pictures of each other. In one such picture of Shibani, where she is looking all weary, Farhan posted it as his Instagram story and wrote, “Damn you @faroutakhtar” atop it.

Amazing, right? Things are pacing steadily for Farhan and Shibani and looks like there are high chances that the couple might tie the knot this year! Sounds exciting, right? A source close to the couple had shared with DNA sometime back, “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." Another Instagram conversation with singer-actor, Meiyang Chang gave us a subtle hint that Shibani and Farhan might get hitched this summer! Take a look at their conversation here:
It was not long when 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.” 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.”
For the uninitiated, Farhan was earlier married to Adhuna Bhabani for over 15 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.”
Post their divorce, Farhan was claimed to be in a relationship with actress Shraddha Kapoor. However, Shraddha herself denied all such reports and stated, “I got a message from someone telling me about this article, and initially, I was amused. While it doesn’t make a difference to me because I know it’s not true, it’s sad that these false stories go so far that people forget we are human, too. Of course, we are actors and there will be people who would probably want to read something gossipy about us, but when it involves my father, my aunt and my co-star, it’s taking it too far.” (Must Read: Taimur Ali Khan's Laughter Proves He's Enjoying Pataudi Time With Saif Ali Khan-Kareena Kapoor Khan)
