Newlyweds Sania Mirza and Shoaib Malik’s wedding reception, held in Hyderabad on Thursday, was a grand affair, with actors Neha Dhupia, Rakshanda Khan, Raza Murad, Pakistani cricketer Tanvir Sohail and politician N Chandrababu Naidu, among the 600 guests. Cricketer Sachin Tendulkar and actor Salman Khan wished the couple on the phone. The cuisine at the function was a lavish spread of typically Hyderabadi dishes.
The couple now hopes to head to Pakistan next week, for their reception in Lahore, scheduled for April 22, but Malik’s passport is yet to be released by Indian authorities. Although the two have planned a honeymoon to the Maldives, they haven’t zeroed in on a date yet.
