There may be a Bollywood wedding this weekend as there are reports that actor Farhan Akhtar and singer Shibani Dandekar will be tying the knot. The events are reportedly set to kickoff from Feb 19.

In an exclusive comment to the Hindustan Times, sources close to the family revealed that that the couple will be having a traditional and intimate Mahrashtrian wedding ceremony at Javed Akhtar and Shabana Azmi's farmhouse in Khandala, Mahrashtra.

An insider told the publication, "The family has been extremely discreet about this wedding as they don’t want the media to turn up at the venue. Only family members have been invited. It is still unclear how things are planned, as everything is under wraps. But in most probability, it will be a Maharashtrian wedding."

The report also added that the family will leave for the hill station on Feb 18 evening as the ceremony the next day will be held in the daytime. The publication also reported that the bride's sisters are in charge of the pre-wedding festivities, including a bachelorette party that will be held today (Feb 17) and tomorrow.

Previous reports had claimed that the couple would be tying the knot on Feb 21.

Two weeks ago his father, Javed, spoke about the wedding to the Times of India and said, "Yes, the wedding is taking place. Rest, shaadi ki jo taiyyariyan hain [the wedding preparation] that is being taken care of by the wedding planners."

He also told the publication that due to Covid-19 the event is going to be intimate with just close friends and family. “Taking the situation into consideration, it is obvious that we cannot host anything on a large scale. So, we are only calling a few people,” he said.

Judging by this Instagram post made by Akhtar two days ago, it looks like the actor and his friends are already feeling the wedding spirit! His friends posed with cutout pictures of Akhtar and Dandekar's faces and he hashtagged the post stag day night fever.

Dandekar and Farhan started dating in 2018. The actor was previously married to celebrity hairstylist Adhuna Bhabani, with whom he has two daughters — Shakya and Akira.

Leave aside a gorgeous and talented lady like Shibani Dandekar, why any girl would agree to marry Farhan Akhtar is beyond my comprehension.

Farhan’s mother was Parsi (Honey Irani) & his father is a secular Muslim. Despite negative propaganda, most Indians are truly secular at heart !
