Hectic parleys are on to resolve the dispute between Shoaib Malik and Ayesha Siddiqui, the Hyderabad girl who claims to be the Pakistani cricketer's wife, with former Indian cricket team manager Vankenna Chamundeswaranath trying to broker peace.
Chamundeswaranath today came to the residence of Sania Mirza, whom Shoaib is set to marry this month, this morning to meet the Pakistani cricketer, who flew in here yesterday.
Chamundeswaranath is expected to carry the message to the Siddiquis who have threatened to sue Shoaib if he didn't divorce Ayesha before marrying Sania.
Meanwhile, Shoaib is expected to meet Pakistan High Commission to obtain a 'Izazatnama' which is required for Pakistani nationals to marry someone other than a Pakistani.
Pakistan High Commissioner Shahid Malik was in city last evening attending convocation at ISB but it is not clear whether any meeting took place between Shoaib and the High Commissioner.
According to sources, 20 rooms were booked for Shoaib's marriage with Sania in Taj Krishna hotel here. A famous designer from Delhi is expected to design wedding dress for the couple.
