Shoaib Malik and Sania Mirza were among the popular couples in both India and Pakistan. Both are veterans of their respective fields and have a huge fan following in both countries. But in the recent past, speculations were rife regarding the separation of the power couple and Sania Mirza's cryptic post about divorce two days ago fueled these rumours.
Shoaib Mirza announces marriage with Sana Javed
Today, Shoaib Malik has almost made it certain by announcing his 2nd wedding with Pakistani actress and model Sana Javed on social media with the caption: "And we created you in pairs." Speculations about Malik and Javed being in a relationship had surfaced earlier, and the cricketer added fuel to the rumours when he extended birthday wishes to the actress last year. The Instagram post featured a picture of the two with the caption, 'Happy Birthday Buddy.'
Shoaib Malik expressed support for Javed when the Pyaare Afzal actress faced criticism for purportedly displaying rude behaviour towards juniors and makeup artists on set. In a tweet from March 2022, Malik stated, 'I've known Sana Javed for a considerable period and have collaborated with her several times. From my encounters, I can affirm that she has consistently been gracious and considerate towards me and those around us.
Shoaib Malik tied the knot with Sania Mirza back in 2010 in a typical Muslim-style wedding and subsequently had a Valima in Sialkot. Both of them were blessed with a boy in 2018. There were already rumors of both of them separating and Sania Mirza in her post on social media made it quite evident.
Sania Mirza’s cryptic post on Instagram
Sania Mirza’s post on Instagram read: “Marriage is hard. Divorce is hard. Choose your hard. Obesity is hard. Being fit is hard. Choose your hard. Being in debt is hard. Being financially disciplined is hard. Choose your hard. Communication is hard. Not communicating is hard. Choose your hard. Life will never be easy. It will always be hard. But we can choose our hard. Pick wisely."
This news of Shoaib Malik’s remarriage has come as a surprise for many of their fans on both sides. Some of the fans even took to X formerly Twitter to express their views on the news. Here are some of the fan's reactions on X:
