A pre-wedding ceremony, Mehendi, was held on Monday in Dubai. The couple also did a photoshoot around Dubai in locations like Jumeirah Board Walk, Atlantis, Burj Khalifa and Burj Al Arab.

Hassan Ali will host a walima ceremony (a traditional banquet hosted by the groom after the wedding) in Pakistan after a month or so after his honeymoon.

Ali and Arzoo’s have been making headlines due to their inter-country relationship, although they are not the first ones from the cricket fraternity to do so.


Pakistan's all-rounder Shoaib Malik had married Indian tennis star Sania Mirza on April 12, 2010. Famous Pakistani cricketer Mohsin Khan got married to renowned Indian actress Reena Roya in 1983 while stylish Pakistani batsman Zaheer Abbas who played for Pakistan cricket team in 1970s had married Indian girl Rita Luthra now known as Samina Abbas in 1988.
