Cricketer Hasan Ali marries Samia Arzoo
DUBAI: Pakistan fast bowler Hasan Ali tied the nuptial knot with Dubai-based Indian girl Samiya Arzoo – in a private ceremony attended by family and close friends including leg-spinner Shadab Khan on Tuesday at Atlantis, The Palm.
According to details, two separate ballrooms – small in size – were organized for the nikkah ceremony owing to the tight guest list. The rukhsati (bridal departure) has been scheduled to take place after three months.
The bride wore a red-colored dupatta (traditional Asian drape over the head) and a fuchsia lengha. Meanwhile, the groom was wearing a black-grey colored sherwani (traditional Pakistani clothing).
Hassan Ali is the fourth Pakistani cricketer to marry an Indian girl. Pakistan’s all-rounder Shoaib Malik had married Indian tennis star Sania Mirza on April 12, 2010.
Famous Pakistani cricketer Mohsin Khan got married to renowned Indian actress Reena Roya in 1983 while stylish Pakistani batsman Zaheer Abbas who played for Pakistan cricket team in 1970s had married Indian girl Rita Luthra now known as Samina Abbas in 1988.
