Actor-filmmaker Farhan Akhtar opened up about marriage plans with Shibani Dandekar on a web show.
Akhtar spoke about it to actress Bhumi Pednekar in an episode of ‘Tape Cast’.
Pednekar’s show featured a pre-recorded question for Akhtar, that said: “Hey Farhan... Are we getting married in April or May? Can you please let me know because I am very confused”.
When Pednekar asked Akhtar to introduce the voice, he said: “That was Shibani, who I think has been having a lot of fun with a lot of news that’s going around currently about us looking for wedding planners, looking for venues.”
“Are you though?” prodded Bhumi.
In response, Akhtar said: “I don’t know. It may be April or April be ‘May’.”
Akhthar further added: “She is an amazing woman. It’s been very special, the last year... You know we’ve been getting to know each other and I couldn’t be happier about it. But with the social media world again, we are constantly being told about the things we should be doing.:
“But yeah, I have never felt so comfortable to share my personal stuff, but I don’t know, I just feel like somehow with celebrating all this, it just feels very natural to me,” he added.
Akhtar was married to celebrity hairstylist Adhuna Bhabani for 16 years, before announcing their separation in 2016. Together, they have two daughters, Shakya and Akira.
