The news of Farhan and Shibani's wedding was confirmed by Javed Akhtar. Speaking to Bombay Times, he said, "Yes, the wedding is taking place. Rest, shaadi ki jo taiyyariyan hain that is being taken care of by the wedding planners."
He further said, "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. It will be a very simple affair. Khair abhi tak toh invitations bhi nahi bheje gaye hai."
Talking about her daughter-in-law to be Shibani, Akhtar said, "She is a very nice girl. All of us like her very much. The most important thing is that Farhan and she get along very well, which is great."
Farhan and Shibani, who have been dating for a while now, will be registering their wedding in Mumbai on February 21. Reportedly, the wedding celebrations will take place at Javed Akhtar and Shabana Azmi's Khandala farmhouse on Saturday, February 19.
