Indian Tennis star Sania Mirza to marry Pakistan cricketer Shoaib Malik. India's popular tennis player Sania Mirza will marry to Shoaib Malik, the former cricket captain of Pakistan. A formal wedding reception has been scheduled within a month and this news is confirmed by Sania's father Imran Mirza.
"My wedding is going to be the biggest day of my life. I have been in the constant glare for too long and would appreciate privacy at this very personal moment in my life," Sania was quoted as having said in a statement. "I hope to be fully fit to represent India in the Commonwealth and Asian Games that are scheduled for later this year," she said. Sania's mother, Nasima said, "Marriages are made in heaven."
Incidentally, Shoaib was earlier accused of marrying another Hyderabad girl, Ayesha Siddiqui, in 2002 over phone even though the cricketer said he was merely engaged to her. Ayesha's father had also threatened to sue Malik accusing him of ditching the girl. Malik's brother-in-law Imran Z Malik said the marriage proposal was taken by the cricketer's mother to India.
"This is the biggest day of my life. I have been in the media glare for too long, and would appreciate a little privacy at this very personal moment," Sania, 23, told TOI.
