The couple got married on April 12 amidst controversy over Malik's earlier marriage to Ayesha Siddiqui. The problem was solved after he signed the divorce papers. However, more controversies welcome him on reaching the Pakistani soil. Two petitions were filed against him for holding reception against the rule of the government and for the alleged sale of invitation cards.
However, Shoaib rubbished the allegation of selling invitation cards to his wedding reception. He pleaded the media to give them space so that they could live normal life.
