Some social media users believed Shibani was pregnant
Farhan Akhtar and Shibani Dandekar got married in an intimate ceremony on February 19, 2022, and the first pictures have gone viral.
The wedding took place at Javed Akhtar and Shabana Azmi’s farmhouse in Khandala.
It was a low-key wedding, with just a handful of guests attending.
This included Hrithik Roshan, Rhea Chakraborty, Shankar Mahadevan, Ritesh Sidhwani, Anusha Dandekar and Amrita Arora.
Other guests reportedly included Gaurav Kapur, Samir Kochhar and Monica Dogra.
Talking about the wedding, a source previously said:
“They wanted to keep it as basic and simple as possible.
“The guests have also been asked to wear easy colours like pastels and whites for the wedding. There won’t be a Nikkah or a Marathi wedding.
“Instead, they have chosen to make it an intimate vow ceremony.
“Both have written down their vows which they will read out on the main wedding day, which is February 19.”
For the wedding, Shibani went for a red off-shoulder gown and veil. She also styled her hair in soft curls.
Meanwhile, Farhan opted for a black tuxedo.
The floral decor also matched Shibani’s bridal outfit.
The photos led to a wave of congratulatory messages.
One fan said: “Shibani looking so pretty.”
Another said: “Congratulations.”
But the pictures also prompted online discussion.
Some social media users believed Shibani was pregnant after spotting what appeared to look like a baby bump.
One person asked: “Is she pregnant?”
Another said: “She’s pregnant.”
A third commented:
“She is expecting already, so they both married.”
Another person wrote: “Yep, she’s pregnant.”
But the speculation was put to an end after more pictures of the new bride went viral.
The pictures confirmed that Shibani Dandekar was not pregnant and that it was actually the pattern of her outfit that gave the illusion of a baby bump.
One social media user said:
“For a sec I thought it was a baby bump but I think it is just the dress that makes it look like that.”
Another person criticised those making pregnancy assumptions, citing the Disha Parmar incident.
“Well, people grow up. No need to assume or make everyone pregnant.
“The other day they made Disha Parmar pregnant. I believe if y’all have so much interest, why don’t you all be pregnant!?!”
Disha Parmar had been spotted out wearing an oversized orange shirt.
This led to fans believing she was pregnant.
But Disha refuted the rumours and wrote: “Never wearing an oversized shirt ever again!
“Also for the ones calling and wanting to know… not pregnant.”
