He just slipped into my DMs: Shibani Dandekar on how her love story with Farhan Akhtar began on social media


Shibani Dandekar and Farhan Akhtar's love story is nothing but super interesting. After keeping their relationship a secret for many years, they tied the knot on February 19 in Khandala. Now, months after their wedding, Farhan and Shibani opened up about their first meeting. 

Talking to a magazine, Farhan said, "The first time we met was actually on a show that I was hosting for a TV channel and Shibani was one of the contestants. We always knew about each other but we didn't really speak that much during that time. And then post the show, we just stayed in touch over Twitter or Instagram messaging."

Shibani quipped, "Yeah, he just slipped into my DMs." She shared that Farhan asked her out for coffee through Instagram DMs. "For me, this was a bit strange because we hadn't formed any kind of friendship to even go out for a coffee," she shared.

Shibani added, "But then I thought, why not. He seemed like a really nice guy when we met on the show. So, we went out for a coffee and it was probably the most awkward date I've ever had!”

After a close-knit wedding in Khandala, Shibani and Farhan had a registered marriage in Mumbai on February 21.
