Shaheen Afridi to Wed Shahid Afridi’s Daughter After Asia Cup Conclusion

Shaheen Afridi and Ansha Afridi’s wedding date has been revealed. The wedding ceremony between Pakistan pace ace Shaheen Shah Afridi and Shahid Afridi’s daughter, Ansha, will take place on September 19, after the conclusion of the Asia Cup 2023. The Valima reception will be held on September 21 in Islamabad. However, the families have not yet confirmed the date.

 

Shaheen is currently playing in the Asia Cup, which will end on September 17 (Sunday). Shahid revealed during an interview with a private news channel in April that Shaheen’s wedding festivities would begin in September this year.

 

Shaheen and Ansha tied the knot earlier this year in Karachi. A reception was held soon after the Nikah ceremony, where cricketers Babar Azam, Sarfaraz Ahmed, Naseem Shah, Shadab Khan, and squash legend Jahangir Khan were among the attendees. The couple’s Mehndi function was also held a day before the Nikah ceremony. They got engaged two years ago.

 

The 23-year-old pacer revealed that he first thought about marrying Ansha. “It was my marriage, so I thought about marrying her. Lala and my brother have been friends for a long time, and our elders also know each other. So, my mother went ahead with the rishta (proposal), and the families agreed,” he said shyly during an interview.

 

When asked where the couple first met, Shaheen could not think of a particular moment since they had known each other for a while. “There wasn’t a proper first meet-up as such. We used to go to each other’s houses. Whenever they’d come to our house, I’d see her around, and then we met at our Nikah,” he said.

 

Shaheen also expressed his gratitude for having a supportive life partner. “They say that you should always have a life partner that appreciates you, and thank God I have that. She doesn’t get involved much but has always supported me,” he exclaimed.
