Shibani Dandekar, the rumored girlfriend of the actor Farhan Akhtar, has finally reacted to the speculations that have been doing the rounds about their relationship. After keeping her fans on tenterhooks, in an interview with Mid Day, the model said, “I am not secretive, but I don’t feel the need to say things out loud. Audience might decide whatever they want to but what should be done by me is my prerogative.”
In the month of September, Dandekar posted a picture where she was seen walking hand-in-hand with a mystery man. Almost all the netizens recognized him to be actor-director-singer Farhan Akhtar and a few days later, Farhan shared the same picture.
In the on-going #MeToo allegations against Sajid Khan , Farhan took to his social media account and clarified that he was not aware of his cousin's behaviour. A person accused Sajid’s family of turning a blind eye, just to give the accuser perfect answer Shibani wrote, “turns a blind eye?? wow that’s hell of an accusation.. HE DIDNT KNOW plain and simple .. had no clue... the second he heard he spoke up.. that is his truth no matter how much we discuss it, it won’t change.”
Farhan and Adhuna Bhabani were married to each other for almost 16 years till they got divorced in 2016. In a joint statement, the duo said that they are separating as they have gone apart over the last couple of years.
“This is to announce that we, Adhuna and Farhan, have mutually and amicably decided to separate. Our children remain our priority and it is immensely important to us, as responsible parents, that they be protected from unwarranted speculation and public glare. We sincerely request that we are given the privacy that is required at this time to move forward in a dignified manner,” the statement read.
On the work front, Farhan will be seen next in Shonali Bose's The Sky Is Pink. The film features Farhan Akhtar, Priyanka Chopra and Zaira Wasim in pivotal roles. Farhan and Priyanka will be sharing the same screen space for the second time after Dil Dhadakne Do.
