Bollywood actress Sonakshi Sinha is all set to marry her longtime boyfriend, actor Zaheer Iqbal, in Mumbai on June 23.

While the couple has not reacted to the wedding reports yet, it has been said that they will have an intimate wedding which will be attended by their close friends and family members.

It's believed that the couple has been living together for the past year.

Let's delve into the details about Sonakshi Sinha's soon-to-be husband!

From his parents to his journey as an actor and the connection he and his family share with Bollywood's Bhaijaan, Salman Khan, here's everything about Zaheer Iqbal. So, without further ado, let's get started!

Zaheer made his acting debut in 2019 with the romantic drama Notebook opposite Pranutan Bahl. The film was produced by Salman Khan. He worked as an assistant director in Salman's 2014 film, Jai Ho.

According to media reports, Zaheer completed his education with Salman's sister Arpita Khan. While Zaheer's father is a jewellery businessman, his mother is a homemaker. The actor's brother is a computer engineer whereas his sister Sanam Ratansi is a celebrity stylist who has worked with Sonakshi and other celebs like RajKummar Rao, Aditi Rao Hydari, Sara Ali Khan Huma Qureshi, Fardeen Khan, Manisha Koirala and others. They share a close relation with Salman's family.

Once, in an old interview with a news portal, Zaheer opened up about his father's concrete bond with Salman Khan. The doting son shared that Salman once borrowed some money from his father in 2011 to take out his then-girlfriend. The Bollywood superstar never returned the money to Iqbal Ratansi and told him that he would repay the amount by making his son a 200-crore Bollywood star. He said:

"I remember Salman Bhai saying, that he still owes 2011 Rupees to my father, a sum he had taken to take out his girlfriend. He once told me that he would repay the money to my father with interest by making me a 200 Crore star in Bollywood. That would be his interest in the Rs 2011, which he borrowed."

Zaheer was born on December 10, 1988. Presently, he is 36 years old.

On the work front, he shared screen space with Sonakshi in the 2022 film Double XL. They also collaborated for a music video titled Blockbuster. The actor has not announced his upcoming projects yet.

How and when Sonakshi Sinha and Zaheer Iqbal fell in love with each other?

Sonakshi Sinha and Zaheer Iqbal's love story began when they met for the first time at a party thrown by Salman Khan. What's interesting is that after Sonakshi's meeting with Zaheer, Salman Khan launched the former in his film, Dabangg, in 2010. Sonakshi and Zaheer turned heads for the first time at Salman's sister, Arpita Khan, and her husband, Aayush Sharma's Eid bash in 2023.

It was finally on June 6, 2022, when Zaheer Iqbal made his relationship official with Sonakshi Sinha. The actor posted a video in order to wish a 'belated birthday' to his ladylove, Sonakshi. More than the cutesy video, it was Zaheer's note in the caption that caught everyone's attention.

Zaheer Iqbal penned, 'I love you' in the note, and confirmed his dating reports with Sonakshi Sinha once and for all. Since then, time and again, we have seen Sonakshi and Zaheer publicly talking about each other in the media and breaking headlines for their social media PDAs. We hope they continue to make our feeds warm with their lovely camaraderie.
