Singer Shalmali Kholgade, who made her debut in the film industry with Pareshaan (Ishaqzaade), and her long-time beau Farhan Shaikh are now married. The intimate ceremony of the two lovebirds took place in the presence of her close friends and family on November 22. The news of their wedding came to light after the crooner took to Instagram to share her wedding pictures.
'Had precisely the kind of wedding we hoped to have'
"22nd November 2021 is the most precious day in my life thus far! The day I got married to my perfect match @farhanfshaikh," said Kholgade, sharing pictures from her wedding. "We had precisely the kind of wedding we had hoped to have. In the living room of our home with our parents and siblings, a few aunts and cousins," the Mumbai-native added.
Kholgade and Shaikh dated for more than six years
From the photos, we could see the couple twinning in their attires. While Kholgade wore an orange saree, her partner donned an orange kurta. Kholgade and Shaikh have been in a relationship for more than six years before finally tying the knot last week.
