Called Milkha ji to say we’re visiting Chandigarh and would like to meet him. He said ‘tumhara ghar hai. Jab chaaho aao.’ And it’s absolutely true Milkha ji.. you and your family do make it feel like home. Love you all. #MilkhaSingh #NimmiAunty @jeevmilkhasingh #Sonia #KudratSingh @shibanidandekar A post shared by Farhan Akhtar (@faroutakhtar) on
Akhtar and Dandekar have been dating for almost a year now and in March, the actor-director shared a picture of them flaunting rings on their ring fingers, fuelling rumours of their engagement.
Akhtar will be seen next in Shonali Bose's The Sky is Pink. The film, based on a true story, follows Aisha Chaudhary (Zaira Wasim), who became a motivational speaker after being diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis at the age of 13. Akhtar will essay the role of her father, while Priyanka Chopra will play her mother.
