If not extravagant fashion weeks, film releases or award shows, 2020 has certainly been the year of celebrity weddings. And just when we thought Sarah Khan and Falak Shabbir would be the last to surprise fans with a sudden influx of cheesy wedding photos, singer Umair Jaswal and actor Sana Javed also announced that they have tied the knot on Tuesday.
Following their intimate wedding ceremony, the singer’s brothers Yasir and Uzair Jaswal confirmed the news on social media. The personalities shared a picture of the couple on Instagram, providing a sneak peek into the event.
However, Javed and Jaswal, who posted similar photos on Instagram with sweet captions, did not provide details of the occasion. While the Sammi Meri Waar crooner donned a self-embroidered white sherwani with elusive golden borders, Javed could be seen draped in a pale peach outfit with shimmery gold embroidery.
Both stars shared the pics on their Instagram on Tuesday evening with the caption, "Alhamdulilah.”
The couple’s event reportedly took place at a hotel in Karachi.
Unforeseen but not implausible
Idle speculations about Jaswal and Javed’s affair had circulated several times previously, with conclusions being drawn from their random appearances at red carpets together.
However, sources close to The Express Tribune have revealed that the duo was dating for quite a few years.
Jaswal also hinted at their relationship in the second last episode of his recent web series. Towards the end, he was seen waiting for someone at the airport while a narration played, “Jo na raha usse bhool ja, jo paas hai usse thaam le." And in that moment, Javed arrives and the two embrace each other with a warm hug.
The narration continues as they walk out together, “Par yaad rakho tum kon ho, kahan ho, yahan kese pohunchay. Or tumhay kahan tak jaana hai. Yaad rakho tumhay zindagi ki lehron ne or bhi azmaana hai. Jo tu na ho laapata, tou tere is safar ka kya maza?
Blessings from the showbiz
Family, friends and fans also took to the newlyweds’ Instagram posts and congratulated them on the blessed occasion.
“Mashallah,” wrote the recently married actor Shahroz Sabzwari on Javed’s post. “Mubarak and Mashallah,” added Aiman Khan. “Oh my God! Beautiful bride, congratulations,” chimed in sister Minal. “Congratulations! Khush raho (Stay happy),” said Feroze Khan. And “Bohat mubarak ho, Sana... wishing you a lifetime of happiness,” came from Bilal Abbas.
Actor Imran Abbas didn’t hold back either. “Yeah baat mubarak aur dono saath bohat achay lag rahay hein (That’s the spirit! Congratulations and the both of you look really nice together.” While Newlywed Sadaf Kanwal added in excitement, “Oh my God! Congratulations!”
Muniba Mazari also complimented Javed. “My doll, Sana Javed! Bohat bohat mubarak (Many many congratulations) Umair Jaswal.”
“Congratulations to you both, Mashallah! Such a beautiful moment, may you both be blessed with happiness and peace in your journey together,” wrote television actor and host Ayesha Omar. “Congratulations, rockstar!” chimed in Shaista Lodhi and “Mashallah, so happy for you guys,” added Dino Ali.
“Mashallah! Mubarak,” wrote Khalid Malik and Noor Zafar Khan while Nadia Hussain and Ali Kazmi also congratulated the duo. Fellow actors Momal Sheikh, Kinza Hashmi, Ahmed Ali Butt, Hira Tareen, Yumna Zaidi, Anoushey Ashraf and Asad Siddiqui went on to give their blessings to both Javed and Jaswal as well.
“Mashallah, God bless you guys,” wrote Butt. “How beautiful,” commented Tareen. “Congratulations Umair Jaswal, stay khush hamesha (happy forever)” added Armeena Khan while Uzair just welcomed his now sister-in-law to the family. “Mashallah! Welcome to the family!” he wrote.
Love from the fans
“Sana Javed and Umair Jaswal tie the knot, congratulations to both,” wrote a user on Twitter, sharing a video of the two from a previous event. “2020 is actually good for some people so don't forget to say Mashallah,” added another, sharing a montage of all local celebrities who got hitched this year.
"Nikkah is a shield against many evils,” shared another user. “Congratulations to actors Sana Javed and singer Umair Jaswal for this new journey,” they added. “Made for each other! Have a great married life you two,” tweeted one more, sharing another picture of the duo from the event.
