DUBAI: Pakistan fast bowler Hasan Ali got hitched to Shamia Arzoo on Tuesday. Shamia is a Dubai-based Indian girl, who works as a flight engineer at the Emirates Airlines. The bridal event lit up the venue – Atlantis, The Palm in Dubai. It was a pretty private affair with a few people gracing the occasion. Only one cricketer – Shadab Khan attended the wedding.
According to reports, Hasan Ali wanted both Indian and Pakistan cricketers to attend his marriage. But while Ali’s teammates are currently part of a camp under the leadership of Misbah-ul-Haq, Team India is busy taking on the West Indies in the latter’s backyard.
A few weeks ago, the 25-year-old pacer had made an official announcement to the media regarding his wedding.“Our families wanted to keep this a low key affair, but since the matter has come out in the media I have decided to make an official announcement to ensure there are no speculations surrounding my marriage,” Ali said.
It’s the fourth time a Pakistan cricketer is tying the knot with an Indian girl. Previously, Zaheer Abbas, Mohsin Khan & Shoaib Malik had married Indian women.
The wedding ceremony of the two lovebirds took place at around 7 pm. The reception party is likely to be held in Pakistan.
Both the bride and the groom were slaying it in their traditional attires. While Arzoo looked gorgeous sporting a beautiful Indian look, Ali was looking dapper in his black-grey Pakistani Sherwani.
Sports celebrity couple Shoaib Malik and Sania Mirza hosted a dinner for newly-married Pakistani cricketer Hasan Ali and his Indian wife Samiya Arzoo at their Dubai home last weekend.
Pakistani speedster Hasan Ali and Dubai-based flight engineer Samiya Arzoo tied the knot at a glitzy function held at Atlantis The Palm on August 20. In recent days, the pair has been scorching the internet with their pre and post wedding photographs.
Pictures of the couple posing with Dubai landmarks have gone viral on social media. On Saturday, Samia took to Instagram and Facebook to share pictures from a dinner hosted by Indian tennis star Sania Mirza and former Pakistani Test and ODI cricketer Shoaib Malik at their Dubai house.“Thanks for such a delicious dinner with Shoaib Bhai and Sania,” Samia said in the accompanying caption.
Malik and Sania got married in April 2010 and have a 10-month baby boy Izhaan Mirza Malik. The mainstay of Pakistan cricket team for nearly two decades, Malik, 37, retired from one day internationals after his team bowed out of the Cricket World earlier this year.
