Former Indian Tennis star Sania Mirza’s sister Anam Mirza Sunday opened up on the former’s divorce from Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik.
Anam’s response comes a day after Shoaib announced his marriage, held in Karachi a few days ago, to actress Sana Javed via an Instagram post.
In her statement, Anam revealed that Sania and Shoaib “have been divorced for a few months”.
Earlier, sources told Geo News that Sania had taken divorce following their separation in late 2022 after Sania lost her patience with her spouse over his interactions with other women.
Saying that Sania “wishes Shoaib well for his new journey ahead,” Anam requested all fans and well-wishers against indulging in speculations and respect her sister’s need for privacy at this sensitive period of her life.
Following Shoaib’s third marriage with the Pakistani actress, his brother-in-law, Imran Zafar revealed that the cricketer’s wedding was not attended by anyone from his family.
Sources say that Shoaib’s family is unhappy with him for severing his ties with Sania.
“Shoaib’s family was very sad after the divorce and had also asked the cricketer to work on his relationship,” the sources added.
