Dipika was quoted by TOI as saying, “It’s not mandatory that every love marriage should work; it can have its issues like compatibility too. Breaking off any relationship is difficult, almost traumatic. That’s exactly what happened with me. My parents supported me and Shoaib helped me pull through those difficult times. We were not dating then.” She further was quoted by a leading daily and said, “After he left, I distanced myself from everyone on the set for almost two years. I got anxiety attacks once when I couldn’t reach him when he was on a 40-day outdoor schedule of his project.”
Dipika also said, “I wanted to be sure that this relationship wasn’t on the rebound. Also, we were getting to know each other better. No matter how progressive we become, being a divorcee has some kind of a social stigma attached to it in our society. I had that stamp on me. But he gave me that space and despite being aware of my past, never complained about it. He has in fact always respected that. Coming from a small town, even his parents never let me feel that. I have always longed for family.”
It seems as if their families are keen on getting them married. If reports are to be believed then the love birds Dipika and Shoaib are trying to save enough money for a big fat Indian wedding. When asked about their wedding plans, Dipika says, “It will be a combined effort and we want to save enough for the nikaah. I want it to be a destination wedding and it has turned out to be his hometown Bhopal.
Well, we just expect another big fat Indian telly wedding soon!
