While his batting skill is there for everyone to see, not many know about his personal life. Shivam’s life has been filmy both on the cricket pitch and in his personal life. He is married to his long-time girlfriend Anjum Khan. The surprising thing is that Shivam Dube, who belongs to a Hindu family, is married to a Muslim girl.

Well, the love story of Shivam with his Muslim girlfriend is a fairy tale straight out of a Bollywood movie.

Since Shivam and Anjum belong to different religions, netizens objected to their marriage and ctiticized both of them fiercely on social media. But, their families happily accepted each other due to which Shivam and Anjum are living their lives happily with each other.

Anjum Khan is a resident of Uttar Pradesh and has done her graduation in Fine Arts from Aligarh Muslim University. She is a model and has worked in several Hindi serials and music albums. The couple married in a filmy style, as per both Hindu and Muslim customs in 2021.
