KARACHI: National team fast bowler Shaheen Afridi has reached Karachi along with his family for his marriage to legendary cricketer Shahid Afridi’s daughter, Ansha.
Shaheen is set to marry the daughter of Pakistan’s star player on Friday, February 3.
According to family sources, Shaheen Afridi and Ansha will sign their nikah nama — a marriage contract officiated by a cleric in Muslim weddings — now while the rukhsati (seeing off) will take place later.
Fans will be excited to know that Shaheen and Ansha’s marriage preparations are underway and the groom-to-be and his family have reached the port city. The pacer got engaged to Ansha two years ago.
The sources told Geo News that the Mehndi ceremony will be held tonight in the city of lights.
It is also worth mentioning that the wedding invitation for the ceremony is going viral on social media. However, no one from the two families has verified whether the card is real or fake.
In an earlier interview on the show “Aik Din Geo Kai Sath” on Geo News, the 21-year-old revealed that it was his wish to marry Afridi’s daughter. When the host, Sohail Waraich, asked Shaheen about his engagement and relationship with Shahid Afridi’s daughter.
The cricketer blushed and said, “It was my wish, and Alhumdulillah it is fulfilled now,” he shared.
During the interview, when Shaheen was asked whether Ansha feels jealous about his female fan following, Afridi said he is unsure about it.
“I am not sure, maybe she feels something like that,” the cricketer quipped.
Further, the host asked Shaheen about upsetting plenty of female fans by getting engaged at an early age.
At this, Shaheen said: “I found my heart and that’s enough for me.”
Wedding bells are also ringing for several other cricketers on Pakistan’s national side.
Then on January 20, Shan Masood got married in an intimate Nikah ceremony in Peshawar. Shan tied the knot with the love of his life Nische in Peshawar. Their reception will take place in Karachi on January 27.
Three days later, all-rounder Shadab Khan tied the knot with former cricketer Saqlain Mushtaq’s daughter in a private nikah ceremony.
Taking to Twitter last month, Khan announced his wedding to the daughter of the current head coach of the national team. Meanwhile, the cricketer also requested people to give space to him and his wife.
Yasir Hussain warns artist of action over wife Iqra Aziz inaccurate sketch
Expressing his annoyance over the inaccurate sketch of his wife, Iqra Aziz, eminent actor Yasir Hussain urged the “artist” not to draw his wife’s sketch again.

Sharing the “masterpiece” with his fans, Hussain wrote: “Beta thank you. Good effort bus ainda meri bv ki ki tasveer nahi banani aap ne. Beta baat case pe chali jaye gi warna [Thank you child. It was a good effort but just don’t draw a sketch of my wife in the future, otherwise, you will have to face a case.”.

A user appreciated his work and remarked: “Good job”.

Zayn Malik: Ex-One Direction’s Urdu hit ‘Tu Hai Kahan’ leaves millions longing for more
British heartthrob Zayn Malik, who is known to the world for his melodious vocals in English, has now tested his singing mettle by crooning an Urdu language love song — and apparently, the fans can’t get enough of it.
Collaborating with the Pakistani band “Aur”, Zayn features in the remake of their popular hit “Tu Hai Kahan” which has more than 95 million views on YouTube.
However, the remake too, has received significant praise from fans as the song has garnered more than 3.5 million views on the video-sharing platform.
Expressing his views on his experience of singing Urdu lyrics, the 31-year-old — a former member of the popular boy band One Direction — told BBC in an interviewthat he loved the song and hoped that fans would love the collaboration after he brought some of himself to the rendition.
This is not the first time Zayn has showcased his vocals in Urdu, as the British singer — who rose to fame after his music career kicked off via One Direction following his appearance on the British TV music competition “The X Factor” in 2010 — previously included Urdu lyrics in his track “Tightrope”, from his 2021 album “Nobody is Listening”.
The collaboration cannot be termed unexpected as the British singer — who was born and raised in Bradford — has Pakistani roots as his father immigrated to the UK from the South Asian nation.
This is how the fans reacted to Zayn’s collaboration with the Pakistani band.
“This is a great gesture by Zayn by collaborating with these youngsters and making their song much more popular than it was […] Zayn collaboration gave it those extra wings and wind to it,” commented a fan.
Meanwhile, another termed the song a “masterpiece” and thanked the British artist for encouraging the talented Pakistani artists.
“This collab is going to be my comfort song for a long time,” wrote an X user.
“Zayn stans will forever cherish this song. We truly appreciate you all for making this happen,” said another.
Whereas some fans were “shocked” to see how eloquently Zayn managed to sing Urdu lyrics.
“One of the best and unexpected collaborations ever […] truly a masterpiece,” a user commented on the song.
“Big love […] thanks for all the support,” Zayn said while reacting to the overwhelming praise from the fans.
The collaboration between Zayn and Aur — comprising Ahad, Usama, and Raffey — reflects the band’s open-minded approach to music as it believes that music has no boundaries, the essence of which is reflected in the song.
Reacting to the global popularity and overwhelming reactions from the fans, the band said they were taking Pakistani music to the world stage and “can’t wait for the world to vibe to their music”.
