As per a report in Mumbai Mirror, Farhan and Shibani were expected to get married by the end of 2020. However, now, a source close to the couple has hinted that the two have begun their preparations and the wedding bells could ring sooner than expected.

The source also claims that the initial plans regarding the wedding were designed keeping in mind Farhan’s next release – Toofan that hits the screens on October 2. However, both the sides have decided to pull up the wedding date and the couple will be seen married before the end of the year. The source was quoted saying, “The plan is to get married towards the year-end, after the release of Farhan’s next, Toofan. But they might spring a surprise by tying the knot earlier than that. The final date is yet to be decided but Farhan and Shibani have begun preparations for the big day.”

On the professional front, Farhan Akhtar is currently shooting for his upcoming sports drama, Toofan, directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra.

The film also features Paresh Rawal in the role of Farhan’s coach. Actors Mrunal Thakur and Isha Talwar also play important roles in the film.
