And it turns out, there is no smoke without fire. In September, Shibani posted a loved-up picture of herself, holding someone’s hand, who is showing his back to the camera.

On August 27, 2018, i.e. Shibani’s 38th birthday, the doting boyfriend made sure to make it special for her. Sharing an Insta story of Shibani relishing a yummylicious dessert, Farhan wrote, “Happy birthday Shibani Dandekar" backed up by kiss emojis, atop the picture. Shibani shared the same on her Insta story, and wrote, “Thank you @faroutakhtar”.
As the #MeToo movement is spreading like wildfire in India, Farhan Akhtar’s cousin Sajid Khan has been accused of sexual harassment. Amidst this, Twitteratis started blaming Sajid’s family saying that they knew about his wrongdoings and did nothing about it. Even Aisha fame, Amrita Puri tagged Sajid as ‘creep’ and tweeted, “It was fairly well known that @SimplySajidK is a creep and is completely inappropriate as far as his conduct with women goes. I was warned to stay away from him if I ever came across him. I refuse to believe that it has come as a surprise to ppl from the industry or his family."
To which Farhan replied, “I deeply resent your insinuation that me or my family knew of his behaviour yet did nothing. Your anger is justified. Your conspiracy theories not. @_Amrita_Puri” In another tweet, Farhan condemned Sajid’s actions and wrote, "I cannot adequately stress how shocked, disappointed and heartbroken I am to read the stories about Sajid’s behaviour. I don’t know how but he will have to find a way to atone for his alleged actions." (Also Read: When Farhan Akhtar Commented On Ex-Wife Adhuna Bhabani's Instagram Pic With Her BF Nicolo Morea)
