Farhan Akhtar, Shibani Dandekar tie the knot

Bollywood actor-director Farhan Akhtar and actor-host Shibani Dandekar tied the knot on Saturday in an intimate ceremony in Khandala.

The lovebirds kick-started their wedding celebrations on Thursday, 17 February, and held a few other functions before tying the knot on 19 February. The couple’s wedding celebration is an extremely intimate affair with only close friends and family in attendance, report agencies.

In a picture, the Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara actor looked dapper as he wore a black tuxedo for his big day. Farhan opted for stubble and his classy sunglasses added to his charm. On the other hand, Shibani ditched the Indian attire for her D-Day. She wore a red off-shoulder fish-cut gown that flared out towards the hem. She completed her bridal look with a matching red veil and a centre-parted hairdo with soft waves.

Shibani took to Instagram on Saturday morning and shared a glimpse of her heels for the wedding day, with the caption, “let’s do this.” 

Before their registered marriage, Farhan and Shibani had a wedding at Javed Akhtar and Shabana Azmi's Khandala farmhouse.

Earlier, Farhan’s father and veteran writer Javed Akhtar had confirmed the wedding in an interview with ETimes. The lyricist-writer said that the wedding would be a simple affair due to the pandemic. Javed also shared that the family gets along really well with Shibani.

Farhan and Shibani posed as a couple for the first time in 2018 when they attended Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh’s reception in Mumbai. Since then, the couple has been quite open about their love for each other as they often share photos with each other on Instagram. In 2021, Shibani got a tattoo of Farhan’s name on her neck on her birthday.
