The Love Story: Sania Mirza and Shoaib Malik

| Published on

Indo-Pak love match has created ripples on both sides of the border but no one seems to have a clue about when and where love blossomed between Indian tennis queen Sania Mirza and Pakistan cricketer Shoaib Malik.    

Shoaib and Sania were familiar with each other's names, but it was in 2004 at a restaurant in Hobart that they first came across each other. However, their first meeting lasted only for a mere two minutes leaving them wanting more. Their second meeting was when Malik, along with Waqar Yunis, came to watch Sania play where she found him extremely attractive. But, things did not take any romantic turn this time. It happened when they met for the third time.    

It was a bad phase for both Sania and Shoaib as she was battling with injuries and had just broken up her engagement with her childhood friend Sohrab Mirza, while Shoaib was serving a one-year long ban after their defeat in Australia by the home team.    A

s they say, fate planned it this way. .The two favorite children of controversy fell in love with each other and decided to get married only after five months of courtship.    

The controversies...  

Shoaib and Sania are not just famous athletes, but they also belong to the two nations who are always entangled in diplomatic tactics. Addressing the elephant in the room, their patriotism was challenged in the most indecent way.    The couple also received several threats to call off the wedding. When this wasn't enough, a woman from Hyderabad claimed that Shoaib has already married her and left her there. However, all were just hearsays, the couple went through all of this and emerged even stronger. Not only did they marry each other, but even proved their unconditional love for each other.      

The Pre-wedding rituals...  

The wedding ceremonies commenced with a Mehendi ceremony at Sania's home in Hyderabad. The Taj Krishna Hotel, Hyderabad was chosen as the location to organise the sangeet for this dynamic duo. Sania looked like a doll in an exquisite pink Anarkali suit that dazzled the eyes of all. And Shoaib, an otherwise sharp player wore a white outfit which was given to him as a gift by Sania's family. It was a night to remember with many Bollywood performances and a special Shayari and ghazal round.      

The wedding...  

On April 12, 2010, the couple finally said qubool hai in Hyderabad where Sania wore her mother's red saree that she wore at her own wedding, and Shoaib donned a black sherwani by designer duo, Shantanu & Nikhil.      

The reception... 

 A reception was hosted on April 25 at Sialkot, that is the hometown of Shoaib. It took place at a hockey ground. For this celebration, Sania chose a red and beige saree with heavy wedding jewelry, and Shoaib looked dapper in a white sherwani that complemented the new bride pretty well.
