Popular TV couple Shoaib Ibrahim and Dipika Kakar have finally tied the knot in a low-key ceremony in a Uttar Pradesh town after dating each other for a couple of years. The pictures of their intimate wedding affair were trending on internet but one such picture left their fans wondering. In the picture of their wedding invitation card, Dipika Kakar’s name was written as ‘Faiza’ which sparked conversion rumours.
In a recent interview, Dipika admitted to have been converted to Islam. But she refused to reveal any further details about her conversion.
In an interview to Times of India, she said, “It’s true I have done it, but why and when I have done it, 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 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.”
Her husband Shoaib Ibrahim said, “I feel that when you are a celebrity you are constantly under 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.”
The couple met on the sets of Sasural Simar Ka, but they didn’t immediately had feelings for each other. After the actor left the show, they realised their true feelings for each other. They started dating and finally got married in Bhopal in February.
