Former Federal Minister Firdous Ashiq Awan struck again at Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik and Indian tennis player Sania Mirza’s wedding.
The couple is rumoured to have separated, however, no confirmation came from either party. Awan, on the other hand, seems to be positive that there is trouble in paradise and that the matrimonial union no longer exists, even dropping a comment from the time she attending the wedding.
“The future of this marriage seemed bleak from the beginning, and I forewarned Shoaib that you’re trapped,” the politician said in a guest appearance on a television show.
“When we arrived in Hyderabad, India (for the wedding),” Awan recalled an unpleasant occurrence, “We all wanted to take pictures with the newlyweds during the ceremony, but Shoaib’s mother-in-law forbade the cameraman,” she detailed.
”When I told Shoaib, he was taken aback and signaled the cameraman to allow these guests to take pictures as they came all the way from Pakistan,” she added.
“But all came crumbling down when we realized that Shoaib’s mother-in-law had ordered the cameraman to take her approval before capturing any pictures, and did not allow others to take without the family’s consent,” Awan detailed.
The lawmaker then recalled that the Pakistani guests — including herself — requested the photographer to send approved pictures later on, for which they had to wait a long time.
“I told Shoaib that you’re married but trapped,” Awan concluded.The couple, who tied the knot in 2010, has been one of the earliest couples tangled in cross-border love. They welcomed a son, Izhaan Mirza Malik, in 2018.
