TV couple Dipika Kakar recently got married to Shoaib Ibrahim in Bhopal where the couple had an intimate wedding amidst family members and close friends. The couple has made headlines since the released their adorable and romantic wedding photographs. Amidst the sweet news and images, they also caught the attention of the viewer’s following a news. Dipika has changed her name to Faiza post marriage.
The couple had an inter-religious marriage after facing numerous odds. While asked about her relationship, she said:
“I can’t put the feelings in words. I have noticed the change from the day I have got married. I initially thought it’s ok Shoaib and I have been in a relationship for so long, but no things have changed. May be the way I look at him, the respect towards him has grown. It’s a priceless feeling,”
On the question of changing her name, Dipika admitted in a recent interview that she has converted to Islam. She however, said that it is a personal decision and she is happy that she is converting. She further added:
“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 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.”
The couple also said that they are not bothered by their difference in religion. They put much more value on their love and happiness of the family. Dipika’s husband Shoaib shared:
“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.”
However, this news has not gone well with the social media users. While some questioned her decision, others trolled her. Here are some of the tweets:
Something which no liberal has ever been able to explain to me: How is it an inter-faith marriage when one side has to compulsory convert her/his religion before the marriage??
