Affairs, budding love stories and divorces are an integral part of B-town. It feels as if without all these interesting elements, there’s a hollow in Bollywood and in the life of our favourite stars. While some divorces make headlines, some ‘second time lucky’ in love couple grab paparazzi’s attention too! Such is the story of the multitalented star, Farhan Akhtar and his rumoured girlfriend-cum-host, Shibani Dandekar.

A few days back, a picture posted by Shibani stormed the internet. Shibani was holding the hands of a man who’s back was turned towards the camera, with only Shibani looking straight at it. The man had an uncanny resemblance with Farhan Akhtar and that is when all the dating speculations started buzzing in. Days later, the Rock On! star too, posted the same picture on his Instagram profile, which he captioned with a ‘heart’ emoji, thus confirming all speculations. Here’s the image:
Very recently, what was projected as an ‘accidental bumping’ by Farhan, the Kartik Calling Kartik star took to Instagram and posted a cosy picture with his rumoured lady-love. Sharing the picture, he captioned it as, “Look who I bumped into! So great seeing you @shibanidandekar”. Checkout the picture and drool!
Amazing, isn’t it? Looks like both Farhan and Shibani are finally coming out in the open about their rumoured relationship and posing pictures with each other. Months back, the alleged couple were enjoying their trek in Vancouver and were having a gala time. Both Farhan and Shibani took to Instagram to post amazing pictures of each other. In one such picture of Shibani, where she is looking all weary, Farhan posted the picture as his Instagram story and wrote, “Damn you @faroutakhtar” on behalf of Shibani, atop it.

It was Shibani’s 38th birthday on August 27, 2018, and Farhan made sure that he does something unique for her. Hence, he shared an Instagram story of the beautiful Shibani relishing a yummy dessert, where the Dil Dhadakne Do star wrote, “Happy birthday Shibani Dandekar", atop the picture which was backed by kiss emojis. Shibani too, shared the same picture as her Instagram story and replied with a “Thank you” on it. Take a look:
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.”
In a throwback interview with HT, Farhan had shared this about his relationship with Adhuna, “I believe that for any relationship or marriage to be successful, the couple has to be great friends. It is also important to keep reinventing your friendship. Besides being my wife, Adhuna is a great friend and I know I can share my deepest secrets with her.” (Don't Miss!

In an interview with Filmfare, Farhan’s half-mother, Shabana Azmi had opened about their split and stated, “Our family reacted with a lot of pain because I really love Adhuna and so does the family. What has been a matter of huge relief is that both have done it with so much dignity and they continue to enjoy cordial relations with each other.” She had further stated, “They didn’t throw muck at each other, they are responsible towards not only the children but to each other as well. And in no way has it changed my equation with Adhuna or Javed’s (Akhtar) relationship with her.”
While Farhan seems to be in a happy space with Shibani Dandekar, his ex-wife, Adhuna has also found love in Dino Morea’s elder brother, Nicolo Morea. Amazing right?
