(you have been officially warned) God bless @shanelleirani #newbeginnings (sic)," Irani wrote on Instagram. She also shared a picture of Bhalla proposing to Shanelle, along with their selfie.
The pictures depict a serene location where Irani's daughter is getting proposed to by Bhalla. It looks like a perfect setting for a proposal with sunset and sand dunes in the background. Also, a table is set with wine glasses on it and a bottle of champagne on the side. You could also see rose petals and lanterns on the floor.
Shanelle is the Union Minister's husband Zubin Irani's daughter from his first marriage to Mona Irani. She studied LLM from Georgetown University Law Center in the US. She is enrolled with the Bar Council of Maharashtra and Goa and currently works for an international law firm. Interestingly she was named by Shah Rukh Khan, Zubin's childhood friend. However, not much is known about Bhalla.
As soon as Irani posted pictures from Shanelle's engagement on Instagram, the comments section was flooded with congratulatory messages from well-wishers. "U prayed so hard for this, so happy (sic)," wrote producer Ekta Kapoor, who worked with Irani in Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi. Actor Mouni Roy wrote, "Heartiest Congratulations." Meanwhile, a follower commented, "Congratulations, Smriti Didi. You have finally become a mother-in-law."
