- Irfan, 24, met Shivangi, 22, in Canberra in 2003 when the Indian team was touring Australia and proposed to her when she was on a visit here three years back.
Shivangi, daughter of a diplomat now posted in Spain, promptly said “yes” when Irfan asked whether she would marry him, Irfan’s father Mehbubkhan Pathan told PTI.
“Miya bibi razi to kya karega Kazi” (if the boy and the girl are ready to tie the knot, what can anyone do), he said quickly adding the family has no objection to the marriage…
Irfan’s mother Shamim Banoo is impressed with the simplicity and good nature of Shivangi, who also runs a dancing school in Canberra.
Sadly for the happy couple they’re going to have to hold off on the wedding until Irfan’s elder brother can meet the right woman.
