Zaheer Khan and Isha Sharvani Wedding and Romance

Zahir Khan and his wife to be, Isha Sharvani, first met in 2005. According to reports Zaheer (Zaks) and long term girlfriend, Isha, will marry in March. After India won the Cricket World Cup, Zaheer Khan’s parent’s, Zakiya and Bakhtiyar Khan, had said that their priority was to get Zaheer married.

Zaheer and Isha were a couple from 2005 to 2007, after which they split up. In 2010, they rekindled their romance which is now culminating in marriage.


Zaheer Khan and Isha Sharvani Wedding Date

The Zahir – Isha wedding is planned to take place in March, 2012. India is involved in a Tri-series competition with Australia and Sri Lanka that ends on March 8. The 2012 IPL 5 start date is April 4, 2012. Zaheer has a clear window from March 8 onward until April 3 when he is not playing international cricket. Also Isha’s next movie release, the Kamal Hassan starrer “Viswaroopam”, is planned to release in April. Considering these facts, it seems that the Zaheer – Esha wedding will most probably take place in the second or third week of March, 2012.



Location of the Zaheer – Isha Wedding

Mumbai has been home to Zaheer for the last few years. It is reported that Zaheer and Isha already have a flat together in Mumbai. There is a good possibility that the marriage will take place in Mumbai.


What Role Will Religion Play in the Zaheer and Isha Wedding?

Isha Sharvani’s parents have lived an unconventional life. Isha’s mother Daksha Sheth is a Gujarati, whereas her father Devissaro converted from Christianity to Buddhism and is conversant in the Vedas. Isha’s family has lived in Delhi, Ahmedabad, Orissa and Bangalore, before settling down in Thiruvananthapuram in Kerala. The family has even lived in a temple complex in Vrindavan for 3 years. Neither Isha, nor her brother Tao have their parent’s surname, because their parents have always wanted them to have their own identity.

Zaheer Khan, on the other hand, comes from a more conventional Muslim family. It will be interesting to see what role (if any) does religion play in the Zaheer Khan – Isha Sharvani marriage. Will Isha Sharvani convert to Islam?
