Farhan Akhtar’s father Javed Akhtar had confirmed the wedding plans. In an interview with Bombay Times, the lyricist had said, “Yes, the wedding is taking place. Rest, shaadi ki jo taiyyariyan hain that is being taken care of by the wedding planners.” He had added that the function will be a close-knit affair.
“Taking the situation into consideration it is obvious that we cannot host anything on a large scale. So, we are only calling a few people. It will be a very simple affair. Khair abhi tak toh invitations bhi nahi bheje gaye hai,” Javed Akhtar had said.
