In another dramatic turn to the whole episode on Monday, the much-awaited wedding of tennis star Sania Mirza and Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik was performed at a five-star hotel around 1:00 p.m. as per the Muslim religious customs. The nikah was performed in the presence of a select gathering comprising only the family members of the the groom and the bride.

There was high drama at Sania’s residence as the celebrity figure left her posh residence at Jubilee Hills accompanied by her parents, Imran Mirza and Naseema Mirza, and sister Anam Mirza.

A battery of cameramen, from print and electronic media, chased the bride to the venue, which was initially kept a secret for security reasons.

A close relative of Mirzas described the ceremony, which lasted for ten minutes as a ‘very simple affair’. Family members of Sania and close relatives of Malik including his sisters, brothers-in-law attended the function, he told The Hindu.

The two families later adjourned for lunch at the same venue.

Keen to put an end to speculation and avoidable criticism, the families decided to go ahead with the ‘nikah’ ahead of the earlier announced date of April 15. Sources pointed out the families steered clear of all possible legal hurdles before going ahead with today’s ceremony by seeking necessary counsel.

Shoaib’s passport was collected by the police, after they registered cases against him, following a complaint by Ayesha Siddiqui, a Hydreabadi woman, who claimed that the cricketer had married her earlier. The passport is still with the police. The controversy over Ayesha and Shoaib’s marriage ended with the Pakistani had ‘divorced’ her after community elders intervened.
