Actor Shoaib Ibrahim and Dipika Kakar asked their fans to pray for Shoaib’s father who has been hospitalised after suffering a brain stroke. On his Instagram stories, Shoaib asked his fans to pray for his father’s speedy recovery. “Need you Prayers & strength once again!! Papa has had a brain stroke today morning and is in the ICU presently!! Please please aap sab dua kijiyega ki Allah unhe theek kar dein (Please pray for his recovery),” he wrote. Dipika Kakar reshared the story. Shoaib’s father underwent surgery in February this year and was under observation for a while.
After his recovery, Shoaib had shared the news on his Instagram story, thanking everyone for the prayers and love. “Inshallah do din mein chalne bhi lagenge. Aap Sab ki duaon ka bahut bahut shukriya (By God’s grace, he may also start walking in two days. Thank you for your prayers.)” he’d added. Shoaib made his television debut with Rehna Hai Teri Palkon Ki Chhaon Mein. He then went on to star in Sasural Simar Ka, where he also met Dipika. They started dating and tied the knot in 2018.
Just recently the full family was out for a small vacation to Lonavala. Recently, Shoaib held a live stream for his fans on YouTube and recalled his days of struggle in the industry. He had revealed that he went against his father’s wishes to pursue a career in the entertainment industry.
Shoaib said in Hindi, “Dad told me to complete my studies first, and then we’d see what happens. I didn’t know anyone in the film industry, so my struggle began in Bhopal. I used to go for whatever auditions I could find. I knew they were fake auditions, and that they would demand money, but I’d still go just to be able to rehearse delivering dialogues.”
