Lahore, Apr.20 (ANI): The reception and ‘walima’ dates of the newly married sports couple cricketer Shoaib Malik and Indian tennis sensation Sania Mirza have been announced.

While the reception will be held on April 25 in Shoaib’s hometown, Sialkot, the reception will be held in a five-star hotel Lahore on April 27.

Announcing the dates, Shoaib’s brother-in-law Imran Zafar said the newly married couple would visit Pakistan as soon as Malik gets his passport back.

Zafar said about 1000 guests are likely to attend the ‘walima’. The Malik’s are also expecting 15 to 20 Indian guests during both functions.

On Monday, the Andhra Pradesh High Court dismissed all cases against Shoaib, and ordered the police to return his passport.

The court also said that Shoaib and Sania are free to visit Pakistan whenever they want.

Earlier on April 5, Shoaib had handed over his passport and mobile phone to the Hyderabad Police, after an investigation team questioned him on a complaint filed by his first wife Ayesha Siddiqui’s father Mohammed Siddiqui.

Acting on Siddiqui’s complaint, police had asked Shoaib not to leave the city without their permission, and also alerted immigration officials.

The decision to dismiss all cases comes after Shoaib divorced Ayesha on April 7.

After the divorce, Shoaib and Sania finally exchanged the marital vows on April 12. (ANI)
