Finally, Sania, Shoaib enter wedlock
HYDERABAD: Sania Mirza and Shoaib Malik entered matrimony at a Nikah ceremony today. Dressed in a beautiful red saree, Sania posed pretty as she headed for the venue on Monday, an Indian TV channel reported.

Earlier today, Sania Mirza’s spokesperson Rucha Nayak confirmed that Shoaib and Sania would materialise their Nikah on Monday, followed by mehndi ceremony on April 13, sangeet on April 14 and the reception will be held on April 15 as scheduled.

Nevertheless, Sania’s PRO also revealed that the tennis star will be wearing the same red saree, which her mother wore at her own Nikah 25 years back. Also, she is stated to go for a subtle make-up and the much raved about Arabic mehndi. On the other hand, Shoaib is set to wear a Black sherwani designed by renowned designer duo Shantanu and Nikhil.
