The social media realm buzzed with joyous emotions as actor-director-producer Farhan Akhtar shared a series of captivating photos on his Instagram account. The occasion was none other than his elder daughter Shakya Akhtar's convocation ceremony, held at the prestigious Lancaster University in the United Kingdom. This event brought together a beautiful blend of family ties and celebrations.

Present at the graduation ceremony were Farhan, his wife, Shibani Dandekar, his father, Javed Akhtar, and his wife, Shabana Azmi. Completing the heartwarming picture were Farhan's mother, Honey Irani, who shares a unique bond with Javed Akhtar, and Farhan’s ex-wife, Adhuna Bhabani.

Farhan also shared a video of Shakya during her convocation ceremony. Fans of the actor were thrilled to also see a candid photograph of Farhan and Adhuna beaming with parental pride as they stood beside their accomplished daughter. Shakya’s younger sister, Akira, and aunt Zoya were missing.

Proud papa Farhan captured the pictures: “Congratulations to our graduate, Shakya .. such a proud moment to be there as a family and celebrate your achievement. Onwards and upwards .. the world is yours. Missed you @akiraakhtar @zoieakhtar”

Among the flood of comments and well-wishes, Farhan's sister, filmmaker Zoya, playfully expressed FOMO, while showering Shakya with love and praise. Calling her the "smartest in the clan", Zoya commented, "FOMO!!!!! Congratulations my Shakalaka baby!!! Your are the smartest in the clan ♥️♥️♥️♥️"

Others to comment on the post were actors Hrithik Roshan, Arjun Rampal, Preity Zinta, Karisma Kapoor, Amrita Arora, Abhishek Bachchan, Pragya Kapoor, and fashion stylist Anaita Shroff Adajania.

Farhan was previously married to hairstylist Adhuna Bhabani, but the couple divorced in 2017. However, the deep-rooted bond of parenthood continues to unite them in celebrating their daughters' achievements. Last year, Farhan found love once again and married actor Shibani Dandekar.
