The Valima reception ceremony of renowned Pakistan pacer Shaheen Afridi and Ansha Afridi took place in the capital city of Islamabad.

The event garnered significant attention due to the participation of social and cricket-related personalities.

Shaheen Afridi, the groom, looked dashing in a stylish black suit, while Ansha Afridi exuded grace in an elegant bridal ensemble.

The reception was graced by the presence of national team players and former cricket stars, adding a touch of cricketing glamour to the celebration. Notable attendees included Babar Azam, Shadab Khan, Imam-ul-Haq, and Haris Rauf, who came to convey their best wishes to the newlyweds.

In addition to the aforementioned cricketing luminaries, the ceremony saw the presence of Naseem Shah, Fakhar Zaman and Mohammad Rizwan, who added to the festivities with their warm wishes and congratulatory messages.

The wedding ceremony of Shaheen Afridi and Ansha Afridi took place on September 19 in Karachi, and this reception served as a grand follow-up to their union. The couple's wedding celebrations have been the talk of the town.

The wedding festivities of Shaheen Afridi started with a mehendi ceremony on Monday.

Remember, Shaheen tied the knot with legendary all-rounder Shahid Afridi’s daughter, Ansha, in February earlier this year. The nikkah was solemnised at a local mosque in Karachi in the presence of close relatives of both families. The couple’s engagement had already taken place two years ago.

Earlier this year, while speaking on the Geo News show “Aik Din Geo Kai Sath”, the left-armer revealed that it was his wish to marry Ansha.

"It was my wish and Alhumdulillah [thanks to Allah Almighty] it is fulfilled now," a blushing Shaheen told the interviewer Sohail Warraich.

When Shaheen was asked whether Ansha feels jealous about his female fan following, Afridi said he is not sure about it.

"I am not sure, maybe she feels something like that," the cricketer quipped.

Further, the host asked Shaheen about upsetting plenty of female fans by getting engaged at an early age.

At this, Shaheen said: "I found my heart and that's enough for me."
