Sania Mirzas father clarifies after Shoaib Maliks marriage

The news of Shoaib Malik's marriage to Pakistani actor Sana Javed sent shockwaves through the sports and entertainment worlds, prompting a flurry of online searches for details. Soon after, Sania Mirza's father, Imran Mirza, revealed that his daughter had obtained a 'khula' divorce from Shoaib Malik before his new marriage. The term 'khula' in Islam refers to a woman voluntarily seeking separation from her husband.

Imran Mirza clarified, "Prior to this marriage, my daughter and the 41-year-old former cricketer had legally divorced through 'khula.'" Previously, Sania Mirza had shared cryptic messages on social media, hinting at potential issues in their marital relationship, although she had not explicitly confirmed their separation.

The cross-border marriage between Indian tennis star Sania Mirza and former Pakistan cricket captain Shoaib Malik has come to an end. Shoaib Malik announced on Saturday that he had married Pakistani actor Sana Javed in Karachi after finalizing his divorce from Sania Mirza.
