In a new autobiography “Ace against odds “the world No 1 Doubles player gets candid about her cross- border shaadi
“It was in the beautiful city of Hobart in early 2010 that my life went through a dramatic twist.
That evening Dad , Trainer Leo and I walked into a restaurant located on thhe water front A little later former Pakistan captain entered looking for a table and came towards the corner where we were sitting. He said Hello and approached our table to pay his respects to my father. I had met shoib earlier but very briefly. And then all is history.
Many months later, when we were finally married , I wondered out loud to Shoib ” Imagine if you hadn’t come to that restaurant that day. We would have never even met.” That’s when he told me it wasn’t entirely by chance that he had stepped into the restaurant in Hobart that fateful evening.
Then a woman threw alegations on Shoib. But every thing was settled and Finally on 12th April 2010 a boy from Pakistan married a girl from India for love amidst an un precedented media frenzy. As I headed for the biggest occassion of my life dressed in my bridal finery my personal car was chased by an army of media in vans all the way from my house to the Hotel Taj Krishna where the guests had already gathered for the nikah. To avoid any untoward incident I was made to enter through the service door at the back of the hotel and through the Kitchen area. This was probablyanother first in the annuls of wedding history. Once we were safely inside the ceremony went off beautifully. It had been a trial by fire but the drama ended on a happy note.”
