Will Sonakshi Sinha Convert To Islam After Marrying Zaheer Iqbal? Groom's Father Makes Big Statement

Sonakshi Sinha and Zaheer Iqbal are all set to get married this month. Ahead of the wedding, the groom-to-be's father Iqbal Ratansi dismissed all the reports of the actress converting her religion to Islam post-marriage. In a conversation with Free Press Journal, he said, "It will have neither Hindu nor Muslim rituals. It will be a civil marriage.

He added, "She is not converting and that is for sure. Theirs is a union of hearts and religion has no role to play whatsoever. I believe in humanity. God is called Bhagwan by Hindus and Allah by Muslims. But at the end of the day, we are all human beings. My blessings are with Zaheer and Sonakshi."

Recently, the actress' father Shatrughan Sinha's close friend Shashi Ranjan shared an update about the wedding. He told ETimes, "She (Sonakshi) is getting married to the man with whom she is in love. Everybody is participating, Shatru ji's brothers are also coming from America for the wedding. The registered marriage will take place at Zaheer Iqbal's house. It is a very happy moment for me and the family."

A few days ago, Shatrughan Sinha confirmed his presence at the wedding. In an interview with Zoom, the veteran actor and politician addressed the false reports claiming he would not be present at the ceremony. He said, "Tell me, whose life is it anyway? It's just the life of my only daughter Sonakshi, whom I am very proud of and immensely fond of. She calls me the pillar of her strength. I will be there at the wedding, certainly. Why shouldn't I and why won't I?"

He added, "The very fact that I have still been in Mumbai conveys that I am here not only as her pillar of strength but as her real kavach (armour) as well. Sonakshi and Zaheer have to live life together. They look very nice together."

ICYDK: Sonakshi and Zaheer have been rumoured to be dating since 2020. They shared screen space in the 2022 film Double XL. They also featured in the music video Jodi Blockbuster last year.
