Shoaib Malik Announces Second Marriage with Actor Sana Javed


Former Pakistan cricket captain Shoaib Malik revealed on Saturday that he has entered into a second marriage with popular Pakistani actor Sana Javed in Karachi, following his divorce from Indian tennis star Sania Mirza. Shoaib, who shared a photograph with his new wife on social media, captioned it with the words “And We created you in pairs.” The cricketer was previously married to Sania, with whom he has a son named Izaan, who resides with Sania.

Sania’s father, Imran Mirza, confirmed that it was a ‘khula,’ indicating a unilateral divorce initiated by a Muslim woman. Rumors about differences between Shoaib and Sania had circulated since 2022, and the couple has been rarely seen together in recent years. Shoaib also recently unfollowed Sania on Instagram.

Shoaib and Sania tied the knot in Hyderabad, India, in April 2010 and had been living in Dubai. Sana Javed, known for her roles in popular drama serials and Pakistani films, was previously married to singer Umair Jaiswal in 2020, but reports of their divorce surfaced two months prior to Shoaib’s announcement.

Sania Mirza, a tennis icon in India, announced her retirement last year after a 20-year career, during which she won 43 WTA doubles titles and one singles trophy. Sania is celebrated as a trailblazer for women in sports.
