Indian actor, director, producer, Farhan Akhtar tied the knot with Indian-Australian singer and model, Shibani Dandekar on Saturday in a private ceremony in Khandala. The wedding ceremony was held the Christian way. Farhan looked amazingly handsome as he wore a black tuxedo suit with a black bow around his neck and his ethereal-looking bride, Shibani wore a grand red gown with a floral lace veil.
The wedding ceremony was an intimate one attended by some close friends and family including a few celebrities- Hrithik Roshan with his parents, Rakesh Roshan and Pinkie Roshan, Rhea Chakroborty, and Farah Khan. Farhan’s daughters, from his first marriage with Adhuna Akhtar, Shakya Akhtar, and Akira Akhtar attended the wedding as well. All-in-all it was a love-soaked event.
The couple waited for a few days before treating their fans with the official photos of their wedding through their respective Instagram handles.
Farhan posted a bunch of photos captioning, “A few days ago, @shibanidandekar & I celebrated our union and we are deeply grateful to all those who did respect our need for privacy on that day. The celebration, however, is incomplete without sharing some precious moments with you and seeking your blessings as we begin our journey across the skies with time, together with love from us to you.”
Shibani also shared some adorable moments through her Instagram post that wrote, “Mera Gown mera lace (My gown, My lace) while another one wrote,” Hey there husband.”
Zoya Akhtar, Farhan’s sister not only congratulated the couple through a heartwarming Instagram post but also threw a ‘WEDDING BASH’ for her newlywed brother and sister-in-law at her place. The post wrote a lovely message, “May you never stop laughing #congratulations #only @faroutakhtar @shibanidandekar” along with some pics from the wedding to which the dear sister-in-law, Shibani reciprocated with the same affection stating,” Thank you Zo, mad love for you”. Sonali Bendre, Maheep Kapoor, Shweta Bachchan, and many others showered blessings and congratulated the couple through their comments.
‘Mrs. Akhtar’ as Shibani mentioned in her Instagram Bio recently, looked like a real-life angel in a purplish-blue gown as shared several clips from the bash in her Instagram stories.
This dreamy chemistry started when Farhan and Shibani meet on the set of ‘I can do That”, a television show in 2015. Although the couple has been officially dating only since 2018 after they made an appearance together at the wedding reception of Deepika Padukone and Ranvir Singh. Following this, the world has witnessed their fantastic love story through their lovely Instagram posts. Now that they have become the ‘United Souls’ following their Wedding Union, there are surely more such blessings to come their way as they set themselves on the euphoric new journey together.
