Farhan Akhtar is all set to tie the knot with longtime girlfriend Shibani Dandekar on February 19. Farhan’s mother Honey Irani recently spoke to the media about how she missed being part of the festivities, given that she had tested positive for Covid-19. However, now that she has completed her isolation period, she is looking forward to the big day. She also opened up about her bond with her soon-to-be daughter-in-law.
She said that they are quite close to each other and meet every second day, given that Farhan and Shibani live next door. “We also went on a holiday to the Maldives together. Shibani and I talk on the phone almost every day. We also keep messaging each other. She’s just too sweet,”- Honey Irani.
Talking about food, Honey Irani said that her son and his girlfriend are ‘foodies’ and often drop by to relish her cooking. “There are times where they both call me and say, ‘Mom we are coming home kuch achcha banake rakhna. Shibani likes to eat the guacamole I make,” she shared. Irani added that while the couple is usually on a diet, they like to treat themselves on Sunday and enjoy gorging on her nawabi keema, mutton dishes and dhansak.
Honey Irani revealed that ‘food’ was all that was being contemplated in the family even while discussing the wedding celebrations. While she put in her demand of ‘kulfi and jalebi’, she said the family has been worrying more about the food than even the bridal trousseau.
