Sania and Shoaib announced earlier that the nikaah would take place on April 15 but they tied the knot yesterday (April 12) at a private ceremony attended by their close relatives and friends, taking everyone, including the journalists, unawares. The guests at the wedding offered zuhar namaz after the nikaah.
The Mehndi ceremony is taking place today followed by Sangeet tomorrow (April 14). The wedding reception will be held on April 15 in Hyderabad.
The wedding was supposed to take place on April 9 but it was postponed by 3 days after the Qazi refused to perform the nikaah without Shoaib"s passport, which was seized by the police following an FIR filed by his first wife Ayesha Siddiqui. However, Sania's family got a no-objection certificate from the Hyderabad police, thus paving the way for the marriage.
Well, Sania may not be able to fulfill her dream of acting in Bollywood films but her wedding was like one!
