Television’s favourite bahu and actress Dipika Kakar got married to her beau, Shoaib Ibrahim in a hush-hush wedding in Bhopal. While Dipika’s fans loved her wedding day look, they were all curious about her name on the wedding invite which read Shoaib weds Faiza.
Dipika and Shoaib fans were left wondering if she had actually converted to Islam for her husband and in a recent interview to a leading daily, the actress put all speculations to rest.
“It’s true I have done it, but why and when I have done it, I don’t think it needs to be talked about. I think it is a very personal matter and I don’t think I need to talk about it openly in front of the media. For the audience and media we are actors and have always shared everything. All our happy moments we have shared with you all, but this I think is a very personal space and I don’t give anyone the permission to enter the space. Definitely, it is true and I am not denying it. I am very happy and proud that I have done it for myself and my happiness. My family was with me in this decision and my intentions were not to hurt anyone. This is my decision,” Dipika said.
Shoaib too spoke to the media about her decision. “I feel that when you are a celebrity you are constantly under the scanner and there are people who love you, but then there are also people who try to bring you down. We have always taken decisions in life only keeping our family in mind, if they are happy and fine then rest of the world doesn’t matter to us. I don’t consider myself a celebrity, we are very simple people and we like to lead a simple life,” he shared.
