Just on the heels of the news that Indian tennis ace Sania Mirza would marry former Pakistan cricket captain Shoaib Malik, another news is doing the rounds that they have called off their wedding, bowing down to the pressure of the public.
It is said that Sania and Shoaib have mutually decided to part ways, following huge outcry from both India and Pakistan. The activists from India also added fuel to the fire by holding protests against their alliance, as they don't want Sania to get married to a person from their rival country.
Sania had earlier said that their marriage has nothing to do with Indo-Pak politics but the public pressure weighed down on her like a ton of bricks. She knew that she owed her success to Indians, as their have been morally supporting her through thick and thin.
It was earlier reported that Sania and Shoaib would tie the knot on April 15, followed by grand reception in Dubai and Lahore.
