It’s model-actress-VJ Shibani Dandekar’s birthday today, and as the actress turns a year older, wishes have been flying in for her from all her loved ones. While her beau Farhan Akhtar chose a rather short and sweet message for wishing her, while she got inked with his name, her close friend, actress Rhea Chakraborty used the day to reflect her feelings towards her.
Taking to Instagram, Rhea posted a lovely picture of the duo and captioned it, “The woman on the right is everything the woman on the left ever wants to be. Loving, kind, brave and righteous! On your birthday, I want to tell you that - 'One friend like Shibani Dandekar is all anyone should ever wish for'. Happy birthday to the world’s most special girl. I love you so so much.” She even took to her Insta stories and called Shibani her “Sweet Sister”.
Last year, when Rhea was foiled in the controversy surrounding Sushant Singh Rajput’s death, Shibani openly stood by the actress, voicing her support. She even took to social media to post the slogan, “Roses Are Red, Violets Are Blue, Let’s Smash The Patriarchy, Me And You,” captioning it, “#justiceforrhea”. Shibani was even trolled at that time for supporting Rhea but she didn’t budge at all.
During Rhea's trial, Shibani had also penned a heartfelt note on Instagram in her support. She said, “I’ve known Rhea Chakraborty since she was 16years old! Vibrant, strong, vivacious, such a bright spark… so full of life. I've witnessed such a stark contrast to this side of her personality over the last few months as her and her family (some of the kindest warmest best people you will ever meet) have experienced the most unimaginable trauma! We have watched the media behave like complete vultures on a witch-hunt, vilifying and torturing an innocent family to breaking point!”
Even Shibani’s sister had extended her support to Rhea saying, “I’m crying, my heart hurts to know what they are doing to our little rabbit... She is our baby sister forever #justiceforrhea.”
