An insider discloses, “The family has been extremely discreet about this wedding as they don’t want the media to turn up at the venue. Only family members have been invited. It is still unclear how things are planned, as everything is under wraps. But in most probability, it will be a Maharashtrian wedding.”

Dandekar’s sisters and close friends are believed to be in charge of the pre-wedding festivities and bachelorette, which will take place between February 17 (today) and 18.

Dating for about four years, the couple will register the wedding at their Bandra house on February 21. A reception of sorts is to be held for friends and colleagues in the evening.

Recently, Akhtar shared a picture with his friends on Insta, which got people wondering if it was from his bachelor bash. Interestingly, Dandekar was also part of the party.

Earlier in an interview Akhtar’s father and veteran lyricist Javed Akhtar confirmed the wedding . He said, “Yes, the wedding is taking place. Rest, shaadi ki jo taiyyariyan hain that is being taken care of by the wedding planners.”
