Sania Mirza becomes Sania Malik
Sania Mirza and Shoaib Malik entered matrimony at a much-hyped Nikah ceremony today. The couple looked extremely happy as they got married at the Taj Krishna hotel on Monday afternoon.
Earlier today, Sania Mirza’s spokesperson Rucha Nayak had confirmed that Shoaib and Sania would materialise their Nikah on Monday, followed by mehendi ceremony on April 13, sangeet on April 14 and the reception will be held on April 15 as scheduled, reported Zee NEws.
Although the venue of the Nikah hasn’t been confirmed as yet due to security reasons, sources reveal that the ceremony will take place at the Taj Krishna hotel here on Monday. Interestingly, it was at the same hotel that Sania was engaged to her childhood friend Sohrab Mirza on July 10 last year amid much fanfare. The tennis ace called off the engagement January 28 this year citing ‘incompatibility’.
Nevertheless, Sania’s PRO also revealed that the tennis star will be wearing the same red saree, which her mother wore at her own Nikah 25 years back. Also, she is stated to go for a subtle make-up and the much raved about Arabic mehendi. On the other hand, Shoaib is set to wear a Black sherwani designed by renowned designer duo Shantanu and Nikhil.
Talking about Sania’s wedding, the designer duo confirmed saying, “Yes we are designing Sania’s wedding and reception outfits but we cannot divulge any further details on it.”
Earlier, Kazi Ahmetullah Pasha had said that the Nikah would take place on Friday, April 9, at 6:30 pm in the evening. However, the marriage could not be performed as Shoaib reportedly could not submit necessary documents like passport and clearances with regard to closing of the criminal case filed against him.
However, things apparently sorted out when Shoaib Malik gave divorce to Ayesha Siddiqui after initially refuting claims that the two had got married.
