Farhan Akhtar and Shibani Dandekar have been posting several love-filled photos from their London trip. Even though they are undergoing training under former kickboxing champion Drew Neal in the city, they manage to scoop some time off their busy schedules to have fun together. Take a look at the aforementioned pictures here:
Masaba Gupta was born to Neena Gupta and Vivian Richards, when they were in a relationship in the Eighties. Neena is now married to chartered accountant Vivek Mehra while Vivian Richards is married to Miriam. Last year, on Vivian Richards' birthday, Masaba posted a lovely family photo and said that she "dropped every single 'important' thing" she was doing to surprise her dad on the occasion. Take a look at her post:
I'ts been a bit astonishing, how short life can be .. which is why I dropped every single 'important' thing I was doing to come surprise my dad on his birthday today & even had an impromptu family reunion. Missing the husband,though. Happy birthday , dad - I'm really trying to make this emotional , but you're 66 now & still can't send a whatsapp & think a smartphone is the devil incarnate. Slow
