Dipika Kakar married her co-star Shoaib Ibrahim in a hush-hush affair this February. The two shared screen space in a T.V. daily soap named Sasural Simar Ka. The actress before coming to small screen was a cabin crew in an Indian International Airline, and the producers of the show selected her for the main lead in the flight only.
Dipika and Shoaib had faced many problems and disgrace statements from public and family as Shoaib is a Muslim and Dipika is a divorcee. But they two fought and finally found their way as they got married and the pictures they share are giving goals to their fans.
Recently Shoaib shared an iftaari picture of the couple, as it’s their first Ramzan together as a married couple.

Also Recently, Dipika confirmed that she had converted her religion to Islam and had also changed her name. The actress told the leading newspaper in an interview stating “joh sach hai woh hai… 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 it’s 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 to hurt anyone. This is my decision.” Dipika and Shoaib married as per Muslim traditions in Bhopal (the actor’s hometown).
Their wedding was a private ceremony and they had opted to get married from Bhopal to stay away from media attention. A source related to the couple told “Both Dipika and Shoaib wanted a very personalised affair. Being quite private people, they chose to have the ceremonies in Bhopal to avoid the constant media attention. Also, with Shoaib’s family residing there, it helped them in organising a grand yet a close-knit wedding’’. After the wedding, the couple hosted a starry reception for their industry friends in Mumbai.
