Farhan Akhtar turned a year older on Saturday and social media was flooded with love for the film filmmaker-cum-actor. Keeping his birthday a low key affair, the ‘Dil Chahta Hai’ director was snapped at his sister Zoya Akhtar’s residence in Bandra. Farhan was accompanied by girlfriend Shibani Dandekar and his father Javed Akhtar. The paparazzi snapped Farhan, Shibani and Javed Akhtar exiting Zoya’s home after a quiet family dinner.



Shabana Azmi was missing from the family event as she is shooting in London. However, speaking to ETimes, she was showered the birthday boy with praise, “He is fiercely independent and deeply caring. Also, he is talented, funny, at times witty and a super father.” Speaking about the bond that they share, the actress added, “I respect his space and he respects mine, which is why we have a strong bond.” Shibani Dandekar had also penned a loved-up post for Farhan on Instagram on the occasion of his birthday, “To the love of my life, my best friend, my ludo partner … wouldn’t know how to be on this journey without you… lucky to have you holding my hand and watching my back through it all .. you are a beautifully talented genius of an artist and the most incredible human I have known .. thank you for being all mine .. happy birthday my Foo.”

On the work front, Farhan will soon be seen essaying the role of a boxer in Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s next directorial titled ‘Toofan’.
