In another twist to the ongoing saga involving Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik and Indian national Ayesha Siddiqui, reports in media say that Sania Mirza and Shoaib Malik may have already married at a private ceremony in Dubai.
According to a report in The Times of India, there were unconfirmed reports of their marriage since the hotel in Hyderabad was booked only for reception and not for nikaah. This led to a speculation that Malik may already have wedded Sania and was in Hyderabad only for the reception.
The report also says that Sania Mirza's wedding card has only the reception date and has no mention of the nikah. However, local community members say that the Mirzas probably want to keep the nikah a private affair and thus do not wish to invite all those they have called for the reception.
This development comes in the wake of reports in the media, which say that the wedding may be postponed. The report says that Local community members say that Malik's stay in the Mirza house prior to the wedding and Sania sticking to the cricketer despite allegations against him do seem to suggest they are not just engaged but possibly a married couple.
There is no official confirmation of the report yet.
