The much-awaited nikah (wedding) of Indian tennis star Sania Mirza and Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik would reportedly take place tonight and not on April 15!
Reports suggest that the wedding will be held at 7 pm at Sania Mirza's residence in Hyderabad. The reception will be held on April 15 at the Taj Krishna hotel. Interestingly, it was at the same hotel that Sania was engaged to her childhood friend Sohrab Mirza on July 10 last year.
Kazi Ahmetullah Pasha would administer the oath. The development comes just a day after Shoaib Malik divorced Ayesha Siddiqui after refuting claims that the two were married.
Among those who have flown into the city are Shoaib's mother Sultana Farooq, brother Adil Malik, sisters Shazia Imran and Sadaf Imran, nephew Mamoon Imran and niece Zainab Imran. Shoaib and his kin are expected to return to Pakistan two days after the wedding.
In a conversation with CNN IBN, Abdul Majid Bhatti, a senior sports journalist from Geo TV has confirmed that the couple is marrying tonight.
