“We knew each other socially and then we bumped into each other at a restaurant in Hobart where you don’t even see animals/birds after 6 pm, forget people. Must’ve been destiny that we met over there to be very honest.
“Only later I realized that he had actually planned to come to the restaurant because I was there. I was giving destiny all the credit but it was clearly not.”

She said that she thought that only destiny had a role to play in their marriage but the Pakistani cricketer had actually planned the meeting.
“Must’ve been destiny that we met over there to be very honest. Only later I realized that he had actually planned to come to the restaurant because I was there. I was giving destiny all the credit but it was clearly not,” she added.
The couple walked the aisle together back in April 2010, in India’s Hyderabad following a reception ceremony in Malik’s hometown Sialkot.
They welcomed their first child in October last year, a boy named Izhan Mirza Malik.
