Sania Mirza has disclosed that her son, Izhaan, is facing mental distress and has refrained from attending school due to bullying, following Shoaib Malik’s third marriage.
Pakistani cricketer, Shoaib Malik, surprised everyone by sharing pictures with actress Sana Javed on January 20, 2024, introducing her as his third wife.
The cricketer, previously married to Indian tennis sensation, Sania Mirza, and father to their son, Izhaan, prompted Sania to share the impact of Shoaib Malik’s recent marriage on their 5-year-old son,” reported Medha Sengupta on Jan 25, 2024.
Quoting Sania Mirza, she stated,
“Izhaan is mentally disturbed after the wedding of his father, Shoaib Malik. He has stopped going to school due to bullying, as other kids keep asking him about his father’s third marriage. Consequently, Izhaan’s mental state has compelled me to bring him to India, as he no longer wishes to stay in Dubai.”
The family lived in Dubai, and Izhaan was enrolled in a school there. However, after news of Shoaib’s third marriage broke, Sania had to return to India with her son. Sania mentioned that while she has adapted to the situation, her son will need time to do the same.
