Shoaib Malik Ties the Knot with Sana Javed Amid Sania Mirza Divorce Buzz

Shoaib Malik

In a surprising turn of events, veteran Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik has embarked on a new journey by marrying Pakistani actress Sana Javed. The announcement, shared on the social media platform X (formerly Twitter), featured enchanting pictures from their wedding ceremony, accompanied by the caption, “And we created you in pairs.”

Rumors of Malik’s involvement with Javed had been circulating for some time, gaining momentum when he extended birthday wishes to the actress last year with a heartwarming “Happy Birthday Buddy” post, showcasing a snapshot of their camaraderie.

The 41-year-old cricketer had previously stood by Javed when she faced backlash for alleged misconduct on the set of Pyaare Afzal. In March 2022, Shoaib Malik took to Twitter to express his support, stating, “I have known Sana Javed for quite some time now and have had the opportunity to work with her multiple times. From my personal experience, I can only say that she has always been kind and courteous towards me and the people around us.”

Amid ongoing rumors of a divorce with Indian tennis legend Sania Mirza, Malik’s wedding post has sent ripples of surprise across borders. Shoaib and Sania exchanged vows in 2010 in a traditional Muslim ceremony in Hyderabad, followed by a Walima ceremony in Sialkot, Pakistan. The couple also shares a son, Izhaan, born in 2018.

While the details surrounding the strain in Shoaib Malik and Sania Mirza’s relationship remain undisclosed, signs of a rift emerged around the first half of 2021. Despite initially maintaining an active presence on social media and sharing glimpses of their lives together, the couple’s online engagement dwindled over time. Reports from last year hinted at a potential collaboration for a TV show, which materialized as Spotify’s “The Mirza Malik Show,” featuring the duo hosting celebrities in 40-minute episodes.

Adding to the intrigue, Sania Mirza‘s recent cryptic Instagram post on the challenges of marriage and life choices has reignited speculations about a possible divorce. Her thought-provoking message urged followers to “choose your hard” in various aspects of life.

Addressing the question of whether this marks Shoaib Malik’s third wedding, officially, this is his second marriage. However, before marrying Sania Mirza, Malik faced allegations of a prior marriage with Ayesha Siddiqui, which he vehemently denied, attributing it to an incident of fraud.

The controversy with Ayesha unfolded in the early 2000s, involving phone calls, supposed feelings developing between Shoaib Malik and Ayesha, and ultimately revealing disparities between the person in photographs and the individual Malik was communicating with. Despite legal notices exchanged and Ayesha’s strong allegations, Malik clarified that the entire chapter with Ayesha was a case of fraud, bringing a unique twist to his matrimonial history.
