A couple of months ago a news went viral that star pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi’s family approached Shahid Afridi’s family for his daughter’s hand in marriage. Taking to the popular social media site Twitter, Shahid Afridi said that both families are in touch regarding the matter.
There were reports that Afridi’s daughter and Shaheen were soon to be engaged after the two families, who have well established relations, reached an understanding. While Afridi confirmed that he was approached, he did not officially announce if the proposal was accepted. Shaheen’s father, however, said that Afridi’s family had agreed to the proposal, adding that a formal engagement ceremony will be held soon.
Shahid Afridi in a recent interview confirmed that his daughter is now engaged to Shaheen Shah Afridi.
“My daughter is engaged to Shaheen, Allhamdulillah. We are not relatives but Shaheen’s family was approaching us from last two years for the proposal. I asked my daughter and we made the decision altogether. My daughter currently completed her FSC exams.”, added Shahid Afridi.
