However, there were many speculations about Dipika converting to Islam as Shoaib is a Muslim and even the marriage rituals and ceremonies were done according to the Muslim traditions. The question of Dipika converting to Islam remained unanswered until in a recent interview that she has converted to Islam, but felt that she didn’t have to reveal any further details about such a private matter.
In an interview to a leading daily, Dipika said, “It’s true I have done it, but why and when I have done it, don’t think it needs to be talked about.”She further added, “I think it is a very personal matter and I don’t think I need to talk about it openly in front of the media. For the audience and media we are actors have always shared everything. All our happy moments we have shared with you all, but this I think is a very personal space and I don’t give anyone the permission to enter the space. Definitely, it is true and I am not denying it. I am very happy and proud that I have done it for myself and my happiness. My family was with me in this decision and my intentions were not to hurt anyone. This is my decision.”
