Television’s one of the most adorable lovebirds, Dipika Kakar and Shoaib Ibrahim, who met on the sets of Sasural Simar Ka seven years back and shot to fame with characters Simar and Prem respectively in one of the longest running Star Plus’ shows Sasural Simar Ka, are all set to exchange wedding vows. Yes, the actors are all set to tie the knot and their wedding will likely be a low-key affair.
In a statement to indianexpress.com, a source close to the actors, said, “Shoaib and Dipika, both wanted a very personalised affair. Being quite private people, they chose to have the ceremonies in Bhopal to avoid the constant media attention. Also, with Shoaib’s family residing there, it helped them in organising a grand yet a close-knit wedding. Only the closest of the friends have been invited but the rest would get to wish the newlyweds in a reception in Mumbai, the dates of which haven’t been fixed yet.”
Dipika and Shoaib, who were last seen shaking a leg in Nach Baliye 8, were planning to enter marital bliss by this month end but it turns out that the couple will be taking the plunge this week itself. They have already left for their wedding. Yes, the couple will have a destination wedding and the two are already on their way to their hometowns Bhopal and Lucknow (where the wedding rituals will take place) on February 26.
For the uninitiated, the TV actress had a troubled married life in the past. Now, (after she divorced her ex-husband Raunak Mehta) she is in a happy space as she found again found love in (her longtime beau) Shoaib Ibrahim. But the couple had a few issues in their marriage and the major hindrance in their lives was that the two belong to different religions but fortunately their strong friendship and love towards each other defy all such problems.
The ceremonies have already begun and the nikaah is on Monday; the wedding will happen following the traditional Muslim customs. The couple, who is taking their relationship to the next level and is all set to walk down the aisle, was seen recreating Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol’s Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (DDLJ) iconic moment as they travel to their wedding destination.
