The scuttle is over. Tennis star Sania Mirza and Shoaib Malik were officially married on Monday in a private ceremony held at the Taj Kirisna Hotel in the bride’s hometown of Hyderabad, India.
“Sania wore a red saree that her mother had worn 25 years ago for her own nikaah. Shoaib wore wearing a black sherwani which was made by Shantanu and Nikhil,” said Sania’s spokesperson, Rucha Nayak.
Controversy and tensions surrounded Malik, a Pakistani cricket star, who married Ayesha Siddiqui over the phone in 2002. After denials and claims of cheating (Malik says Siddiqui cheated by sending him photos that weren’t of her), Malik officially divorced Siddiqui last week allowing the Mirza marriage to continue.
So Mirza turned “a double fault into advantage Sania” according to the reporter in the below video.
Advantage appetites, too. The main menu lunch spread included 26 dishes with seven different starters and 12 deserts.
Mirza, who has been off the WTA tennis tour fighting wrist problems, has seen her ranking slip to a current mark of #89.
