For the past few weeks, rumors about Shoaib Malik and Sania Mirza getting a divorce have been flying all over the internet. Although neither party has acknowledged these rumors, a Pakistani OTT platform recently announced a show featuring the pair, which has prompted a heated debate. Was it all a lie or the couple is really splitting up after 12 years?

What sparked the divorce rumors?

Since Sania is the reigning tennis queen of India, a lot of people were interested in her marriage to a Pakistani tennis player and former captain of Pakistan’s cricket team. The couple got married in 2010 and welcomed their kid the following year. According to reports, the two have already split up and are co- parenting their kid Izhaan. Furthermore, Sania reportedly relocated to a new home in Dubai recently after living with Shoaib in a home on Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah for a while, according to an ANI report. After acknowledging in public that things are not going well between them, the power couple will shortly officially declare their divorce after resolving all legal matters.

Is the couple really separating, or is this just a publicity gimmick?

While rumors of their separation swirled, the couple announced they would be doing a show together. On Saturday, the OTT service Urduflix revealed that Sania-Shoaib will appear in a new program called “The Mirza Malik Show.” Fans, on the other hand, are not happy about this and have started ridiculing the couple, saying that the split rumors are a publicity stunt for the couple’s upcoming project. There has been no release date for the show since its initial announcement in December 2021.

At a press conference in Dubai where they made the show announcement, Mirza and Malik stated that they were excited about it since they enjoy trying new things both individually and as a couple. Whether the pair are genuinely divorcing or whether this is just a PR gimmick is unclear to fans. Many believe that the show may have been filmed before their marital issues. Some believed the news disproved the reports that the couple was divorcing, which had been circulating over the previous few days.

Was Shoaib cheating on Sania?

According to rumors, Shoaib Malik and Sania Mirza’s marriage is in trouble as a result of the cricketer’s reported extramarital relationship. Additionally, it was claimed that Shoaib Malik and Sania Mirza were at odds because the former was having an affair with Pakistani actress Ayesha Omar.

The romantic pictures from Shoaib and Ayesha’s photo shoot have been going viral online. On his Instagram, Shoaib shared a photo of himself with Ayesha in which he referred to her as his friend. Everyone has been speculating about Shoaib’s relationship with Ayesha due to their close proximity.

What’s next for the couple?

At a time when the couple is the subject of frequent divorce rumors, the Pakistan cricketer posted a loving selfie of himself and his wife Sania on the occasion of the tennis star’s birthday. Shoaib’s message for Sania, who turns 36 on Tuesday, adds a new theory to the condition of their relationship and is sure to mystify fans.

Shoaib and Sania are allegedly awaiting the completion of the necessary paperwork to end their relationship, according to reports in Pakistani media. The Pakistani cricketer and tennis star have contracts in place for many TV shows as a couple and they must finish filming them. The couple can petition for divorce once all the necessary legal procedures have been followed. However, the couple and their families have yet to make an official declaration. Sania Mirza, a six-time Grand Slam champion, first said that 2022 would be her final year of competitive tennis, but she later gave a hint that her plans may have changed in light of recent events.
