In a picture Farhan posted on Instagram, he is seen twinning in black with Shibani. “You’ll always have my shoulder to lean on. Happy birthday @shibanidandekar .. love you,” he captioned the image, in which Shibani rests her hand on Farhan’s shoulder.

Farhan and Shibani have been dating for a while, and are currently living in together.

Shibani’s sister Anusha Dandekar also wished the former on social media.

“Happy Birthday chicken, I don’t think I could love a person more than I love Apeksha (Shibani and Anusha’s sister) and You. There is no bigger protector and anyone braver than you. I love you with all of me… Can’t wait to celebrate soon, miss you so so much,” Anusha wrote on Instagram.

Shruti Seth in extreme close-up, sans make-up

Mumbai– Actress Shruti Seth has shared a few tips for good skin with a new Instagram selfie.

The selfie, shot in extreme close-up, captures water droplets on Shruti’s face. She has a towel wrapped on her wet hair.

“Sans make-up, Eat clean, Hydrate, Sleep. Stay positive. Repeat,” she wrote with several tick mark emojis, to underline the fact that she is following the regime ardently.

Amid the lockdown, several celebrities have been flaunting their natural look on social media.

In July, Shruti, who is best known for her role in the TV show “Shararat: Thoda Jaadu, Thodi Nazaakat”, went down memory lane and shared a rare photo of the time she was pregnant with daughter Alina, who turned six on Thursday.

The actress took to Instagram to share a sunkissed picture of herself, but what catches attention is the caption.

“Keep your face towards the sunshine and the shadows will fall behind you,” she wrote along with the photograph, in which she is seen wearing an oversized shirt as she flips her hair back, with a swimming pool and greenery in the backdrop.

Lately, the actress has been facing flak on social media, because she is a star kid. Earlier this month, the trailer of her upcoming film “Sadak 2” became the third most disliked video in the world and the most disliked YouTube video in India.

Released on August 12, the trailer of “Sadak 2” has been trolled by many netizens as it is seen by people as a shining example of Bollywood nepotism — a topic which became the talk of the town after actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death in June.

Taking to Instagram, Esha shared the look of her character in the film and wrote: “16 years of Dhoom and being your Dhoom girl. With love, Dilbara.”

Directed by Sanjay Gadhvi, the action-packed film also starred John Abraham, Abhishek Bachchan and Rimi Sen.

Walking down memory lane, Uday shared a Yash Raj Films Instagram post that has a video of a few bike chase scenes from the film.

The 2004 film revolved around a gang of bikers, headed by Kabir (played by John Abraham), who are on a robbing spree. Abhishek Bachchan essayed the role of a cop.

“16 years ago, on this day, I was excited, nervous and confident! And then… the next day… on August 27th… Dhoom released! The rest as they say… is history,” Sanjay Gadhvi tweeted.

After the success of “Dhoom”, makers came up with two more films in the franchise.

“Dhoom 2” starred Hrithik Roshan as the antagonist, along with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. “Dhoom 3” had Aamir Khan in a double role, as twins who are expert thieves, and also featured Katrina Kaif. (IANS)
