In less than 24 hours Zaheer Iqbal and Sonakshi Sinha will be getting married. The couple will take nuptial vows on June 23, in Bastian, Mumbai.

The couple will opt for a registered marriage in Mumbai.

Being an inter-faith marriage, some reports say that Sonakshi will have to convert to solemnise the wedding. However, her father-in-law businessman-jeweller Iqbal Ratnasi, has set the record straight and confirmed that Sonakshi will not convert to Islam. He also shared that the couple will marry under the Special Marriage Act.

Zaheer Iqbal's father told Free Press Journal, "It will have neither Hindu nor Muslim rituals. It will be a civil marriage."

He also dismissed reports about Sonakshi converting to Islam, adding, "She is not converting, and that is for sure. Theirs is a union of hearts, and religion has no role to play whatsoever. I believe in humanity. God is called Bhagwan by Hindus and Allah by Muslims. But at the end of the day, we are all human beings. My blessings are with Zaheer and Sonakshi."

A Free Press Journal report states that Sonakshi and Zaheer's wedding could take place at Zaheer's residence in the presence of the registrar.
