Later on, they held two marriage ceremonies, one in Chennai as per South Indian traditions and the other in Australia in accordance with Christian customs. The couple had tied the knot only after dating each other for five years. 

Hasan Ali & Samiya Arzoo 

In a classic case of a cross-border romance, two people from two “not-so-friendly” neighbourhood countries fell in love and got married later on. The couple in question happens to be the prominent pace bowler of Pakistan Hasan Ali and Haryana-born Aeronautical Engineer Samiya Arzoo. They met for the first time in Dubai and instantly struck a rapport. Their friendship soon blossomed into romance and after a brief courtship, they finally tied the knot in August 2019. They are very much popular on social media as well where they keep showering love upon each other. 

Shaun Tait & Mashoom Singha

The girl had previously won the Miss Earth India 2001 title and is an anchor and a wine entrepreneur. They finally got married and are also blessed with a lovely daughter. 

Shoaib Malik & Sania Mirza 

After rumours of several linkups in the initial part of their careers, the ace Pak cricketer Shoaib Malik and the Indian Tennis sensation Sania Mirza started dating each other from 2008 onwards.Their relationship was not taken in the right spirit by some people in both countries.

Muttiah Muralidharan & Madhimalar 

The Sri Lankan Spin wizard Muttiah Muralidharan also found a bride from the neighbouring country India.
