In a surprising turn of events, former Pakistan cricket captain Shoaib Malik has recently announced his marriage to renowned actress Sana Javed. This development comes amidst ongoing rumors surrounding Malik’s relationship with Indian tennis icon Sania Mirza.
The couple, Shoaib Malik and Sania Mirza, had originally tied the knot in a grand ceremony in Hyderabad, India, in 2012, following Malik’s previous divorce with Ayesha Siddiqui. Their journey together also saw the birth of their son, Izhaan, in 2018. However, speculations about the stability of their marriage had surfaced over the past couple of years.
Addressing these persistent rumors, Malik had affirmed the strength of their bond last year, emphasizing the challenges of managing time together due to their respective professional commitments. “Humey saath mey rehna ka time nahi mil raha (We don’t get much time to live together),” he explained during an interview with Geo News in April 2023.
Sania Mirza, who retired from tennis the previous year, has consistently remained tight-lipped about her relationship with Malik. Notably, just a few days before the announcement of Malik’s new marriage, he unfollowed Sania Mirza on Instagram, adding fuel to the speculations.
The joint Instagram post shared by Shoaib Malik and Sana Javed officially confirming their marriage has stirred considerable interest. This unexpected union marks a fresh chapter in Malik’s personal life.

It’s worth noting that Sana Javed, a well-known actress with a repertoire of hit drama serials and Pakistani films, was previously married to singer Umair Jaiswal in 2020. However, reports about their divorce surfaced two months prior to Malik’s announcement.
Shoaib and Sania, who originally got married in Hyderabad, India, in April 2010, had been residing in Dubai. The couple’s move to Dubai was significant, considering it was Sania’s hometown.
As the cricket and entertainment worlds buzz with the news of Shoaib Malik’s new marital alliance, the public awaits further insights into this unexpected chapter in the life of the former cricket captain.
