Chandigarh, February 19

Bollywood power couple Farhan Akhtar and Shibani Dandekar got married in Khandala today, February 19 in an intimate wedding with close friends and family. The low-key wedding ceremony took place at Farhan Akhtar’s father, Javed Akhtar’s farmhouse in Khandala. Farhan and Shibani ditched a traditional Maharashtrian wedding or a nikah and instead exchanged vows.

Javed Akhtar, Farhan's father, read out a poem that he had especially composed for this occasion.

Talking about Farhan-Shibani's intimate wedding, a source informed India Today, "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 nikah 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."

While Shibani dressed in all-red ensemble for the wedding, Farhan looked dapper in a black tuxedo.

Here are first pictures shared by Bollywood paparrazo Viral Bhayani:

Bride's friend Rhea Chakraborty, dressed in a white lehenga, was seen entering the venue. Hrithik Roshan also arrived at the venue with his parents Rakesh Roshan and Pinkie Roshan. He was dressed in a white Indian outfit.
