Farhan Akhtar-Shibani Dandekar share wedding photos: Check them out
Four days after their dreamy wedding, actor/director/producer Farhan Akhtar and his wife, singer/actor Shibani Dandekar have finally shared photos of the ceremony on Instagram. For the event, Farhan had worn a black tuxedo, while Dandekar had donned a body-hugging red wedding dress with a red veil. They exchanged vows on Saturday at Farhan's father-lyricist Javed Akhtar and the latter's wife-actor Shabana Azmi's Khandala farmhouse.
Sharing the collection of photos, Farhan wrote, "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 the 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 of time, together."
Meanwhile, Dandekar wrote, "The most magical day of my life!" in one carousel, "Mr & Mrs," and "Hey there husband!" in the other two posts. She also has changed her surname and bio on Instagram. Her surname now reads 'Shibani Dandekar-Akhtar,' while her bio has a capitalized 'Mrs Akhtar.' A dancing emoticon completes the latter. This is Dandekar's first marriage, while Farhan's second.
Previously, Farhan was married to Bollywood hairstylist Adhuna Bhabani. They got divorced in 2017 after 17 years of marriage. They are parents to daughters, Shakya (21) and Akira (who turned 15 on February 12). His daughters attended the wedding as well. Farhan and Dandekar had met in 2015 on the sets of a reality show, but made their relationship public only after three years.
Notably, their wedding was attended by family members including Javed Akhtar, his ex-wife Honey Irani, Azmi, his daughter-director Zoya Akhtar, and Dandekar's sisters Anusha and Apeksha, among others. Friends like Shankar Mahadevan, Ehsaan Noorani, Farah Khan, and Hrithik Roshan, were spotted, too. Filmmakers Ashutosh Gowariker and Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and actors Satish Shah, Rhea Chakraborty, Amrita Arora, and Saqib Saleem also graced the event.
