Pakistani cricketer Hasan Ali on Friday confirmed he was getting married on August 20, revealing that his fiancé Samia Azroo wasn’t a fan of cricket.
Hasan Ali told reporters that most of his teammates were busy on August 20, however, Shadab Khan would be attending his nikkah in Dubai. “The valima will be held two to three months later in Pakistan when all the cricketers will be free.”
Hasan Ali further said he had met Samia a year ago at a dinner and they started talking. “I spoke to my brother and sister-in-law after I met her. I told my brother that I wanted to marry her and the family had no issue.”
According to Hasan Ali pictures circulating on social media of his fiancé were fake. “There is pressure from the families not to show the picture. But people will see her on the 20th. There are fake girls on social media but there is one picture of her.”
The cricketer added that he liked Samia’s honesty the most. “She knows nothing about cricket and does not like it. Her first favourite cricketer is Hasan Ali.” Hasan Ali told reporters he would be wearing a black Pakistani sherwani with elements of red while Samia would be wearing Indian clothes at the nikkah.
When asked about future plans, Hasan Ali said that after their valima the couple would be staying in Gujranwala.
