Truth Behind Shoaib Malik’s First Marriage with Ayesha

In a look back at the past during an interview, Shoaib shared a story about getting married over the phone without ever meeting his bride in person and the subsequent feeling of being deceived. Back in 2002, Ayesha called Shoaib, expressing the need to marry him urgently because their relationship had become a media sensation, causing distress for her family.


The twist in the tale came in 2005 when Shoaib discovered the real identity of Ayesha. He explained the moment he realized that the girl in the pictures and the person he had been talking to were actually two different people:

“I immediately called Ayesha and confronted her about the truth. I was really angry. I told her I was thinking about releasing the photographs she had sent me. She apologized and explained that the other girl in the pictures was already married. She emphasized that it would ruin her life if those pictures were made public. After thinking it over, I realized that the person in the photographs probably had no idea about the situation. It wouldn’t be fair to expose those pictures.”
