Farhan Akhtar’s London vacation with model/TV presenter Shibani Dandekar has set the rumour mills churning. According to several reports, the two are said to be dating. Shibani, however, has denied any knowledge of this.

Speaking to SpotboyE, she said, “I have no clue about this.” Farhan and Shibani posed for a photograph together in London, which Farhan posted on his Instagram. Farhan captioned the image, “Ooh... Aah... take the world and paint it red.”

The actor-director was married to hairstylist Adhuna Bhabani from 2000 to 2016. An NDTV report says that Farhan met Shibani in 2015 on the sets of the show I Can Do That, hosted by the actor. The show also featured guests such as Gauahar Khan, VJ Bani, Rithvik Dhanjani, Bharti Singh and Gurmeet Choudhary.

Farhan was previously rumoured to have been dating Shraddha Kapoor, his Rock On 2 co-star. Neither actor confirmed the relationship. It was also reported that Shraddha’s father, actor Shakti Kapoor, did not approve of her relationship with Farhan. 

Responding to the rumours, Shakti told Bollywoodlife, “That’s total crap! It’s all s**t. Somebody else also called me to inform me about this, but don’t believe it. It’s total, total, TOTAL crap.”

Shibani’s sister Anusha is also a TV presenter. Anusha is dating actor Karan Kundra. Shibani and Anusha recently appeared in the Bhavesh Joshi Superhero song, Chavanprash.
