'Nach Baliye 8' couple Dipika-Shoaib leave home & shift to a hotel


Television actors Dipika Kakar and Shoaib Ibrahim, who played the roles of Simar and Prem respectively, in ‘Sasural Simar Ka’, have been in a steady relationship for three years now, and have plans to tie the knot this winter.

Currently, the couple is seen on dance reality show ‘Nach Baliye 8’, and are winning the hearts of judges and audience with their consistent performance. The show is heading towards its grand finale and Dipika and Shoaib are already in the top four finalist couples.

Both Dipika and Shoaib are working hard to be the winning couple. Shoaib is simultaneously starring in Star Plus’ relatively new series ‘Koi Laut Ke Aaya Hai', and the couple is finding it difficult to manage the shoots and rehearsals. As such, the duo has left their home and moved to a hotel to battle exhaustion, stated a report in entertainment site India Forums.

According to the report, Shoaib has a hectic work schedule and has to juggle between rehearsals and his shoot for ‘Koi Laut Ke Aaya Hai’. The two actors rehearse till 3 am to 4 am after which Shoaib has to reach the set by 8 am sharp. The couple spends so much time travelling that they decided to move in to a hotel so they can be on time for their commitments and catch some rest, too, while they’re at it.

Dipika also confirmed the same and said, “Shoaib has been shooting and rehearsing for his shows and he has been shuttling from one set to the other with barely any sleep. Moreover, now that ‘rozas’ (month of fasting before Eid) have started, he has been fasting and the travel gets pretty taxing for him. So, we came up with this idea, and I am happy we did. I am glad he is getting the rest he needs. The downside of this arrangement is that we miss going back home, as we both love spending time with our families.”
