Farhan Akhtar and Shibani Dandekar will marry later this month, according to Javed Akhtar. They’ve been dating for nearly four years.
Farhan Akhtar‘s father, Javed Akhtar, confirmed his son’s engagement to Shibani Dandekar, his girlfriend of nearly four years, on February 21. The wedding of Farhan and Shibani would be a’very simple ceremony’ held at Javed’s family house in Khandala.
Only a few people will be able to attend the wedding due to the Covid-19 pandemic’s restrictions. The invitations have yet to be sent out, according to Farhan Akhtar Father Javed.
In an interview with Bombay Times, Javed said, “Yes, the wedding is taking place. Rest, shaadi ki jo taiyyariyan hain (the rest of the preparations for the wedding) that is being taken care of by the wedding planners.”

Javed said that it will be an intimate ceremony. “Taking the situation into consideration it is obvious that we cannot host anything on a large scale. So, we are only calling a few people. It will be a very simple affair. Khair abhi tak toh invitations bhi nahi bheje gaye hai (We are yet to send out the invitations).” He also called Shibani a ‘very nice girl’ and said that the family likes her a lot.
Last month, Shibani wished Farhan on his birthday with a bunch of pictures of them twinning in black formal outfits. “My Foo, to what will be your best year yet. Love you FOREVER Happy birthday x,” she captioned her Instagram post. On her own birthday last year, Shibani got Farhan’s name tattooed on her neck.
Farhan was previously married to hairstylist Adhuna Bhabani. The former couple, who got divorced in 2017, has two daughters – Shakya and Akira – together.
Farhan is set to make his directorial comeback after more than a decade with Jee Le Zaraa, starring Priyanka Chopra, Alia Bhatt and Katrina Kaif. The film will release next year.
