Bollywood star and International icon Priyanka Chopra Jonas on Wednesday wished the newly wedded Nobel Prize laureate Malala Yousafzai all the 'joy and happiness' of married life and also complimented her saying that she looked gorgeous in her wedding photos.
Malala, on Wednesday, took to her social media and announced that she has begun a new chapter of life by tying the knot with Asser Malik in a small nikkah ceremony at her Birmingham home.
“Today marks a precious day in my life,'' Yousafzai wrote.
“Asser and I tied the knot to be partners for life. We celebrated a small nikkah ceremony at home in Birmingham with our families. Please send us your prayers. We are excited to walk together for the journey ahead.''
Reacting to her photos, many Bollywood and International celebrities congratulated her.
Taking to her Instagram story, Priyanka shared the activist's gorgeous wedding picture and wrote, "Congratulations @malala Wishing you so much joy and happiness. You are an absolute vision!!"
Malala could be seen wearing a beautiful tea-pink outfit paired with minimal jewellery. Her husband Asser wore a simple suit with a tie matching her outfit.
In October 2012, Malala was shot in the head by Taliban gunmen for actively supporting girls' right to education in Mingora, Swat Valley in northern Pakistan following which she left the country and shifted to Birmingham, UK.
Yousafzai was targeted by the Taliban for her relentless objections to the group’s regressive interpretation of Islam that limits girls’ access to education.
She travelled to Birmingham for medical treatment and her family eventually joined her. She went back to school as soon as she could but kept campaigning for the right to an education for others.
Malala became the youngest Nobel laureate when she shared the 2014 Peace Prize with Indian children's rights activist Kailash Satyarthi for their work on behalf of children and education rights.
For the unversed, UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Priyanka and the youngest Nobel Prize winner Malala have earlier worked together on a special project about the importance of education among children.
