Farhan Akhtar took to his Instagram account to wish his ladylove Shibani Dandekar as she turns 39 today. Sharing a stunning picture of her, he wrote, “Happy birthday, sunshine. May you always have reason to smile. Love you loads, Shibani Dandekar.
The quirky hashtag grabbed the attention of netizens. It even sent the birthday girl into splits. “Hashtag,” she replied, followed by laughing emojis. “Love you Foo,” she added.
Just recently, Farhan and Shibani made their debut as a couple on the runway at the Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2019. The two, who were showstoppers for designer Payal Singhal, looked heavenly in pastel coloured ensembles at the fashion gala.
Shibani shared sneak-peeks of the show and said that it was “surreal” to walk the ramp with her “special man” Farhan. “Celebrating 20 years of Payal Singhal… So incredibly proud of her journey and so blessed to be a small part of it! Have watched her create MAGIC over the last 2 decades and to walk for her with this special man Farhan Akhtar was a surreal moment. Congratulations, my P,” she wrote.
Farhan and Shibani have been together for more than a year and a half now. On a chat show earlier this year, the filmmaker opened up about their relationship.
“She is very pretty and she is an amazing woman. It has been very special last year. We have been getting to know each other. I couldn’t be happier,” he said.
Farhan and Shibani’s adorable PDA on Instagram has been the talk of the town. Talking about declaring his love for her on social media, he said, “I have never felt comfortable to share personal stuff… But I don’t know why, I just feel that somehow, with the celebrating of this, it seems very natural to me. Obviously, you don’t want to go crazy and people are like, ‘Please, bas karo!'”
