Farhan Akhtar Opens up on Marriage Plans With Shibani Dandekar

Actor-filmmaker Farhan Akhtar opened up about marriage plans with Shibani Dandekar on a web show.

Farhan spoke about it to actress Bhumi Pednekar in an episode of 'Tape Cast Season 2', presented by Grey Goose.

Bhumi picked a 'Do not play' casette, which had a pre-recorded question from Farhan.

The question was: "Hey Farhan... Are we getting married in April or May? Can you please let me know because I am very confused".

When Bhumi asked Farhan to give a little introduction about the voice, Farhan said: "That was Shibani, who I think has been having a lot of fun with a lot of news that's going around currently about us looking for wedding planners, looking for venues."

"Are you though?" prodded Bhumi.

In a smart response, Farhan said: "I don't know it maybe April or April be 'May'

Bhumi then appreciated Shibani's beauty, and that led Farhan to open up a bit more on her.

"She is an amazing woman. It's been very special, the last year... You know we've been getting to know each other and I couldn't be happier about it. But with the social media world again, we are constantly being told about the things we should be doing.
