Kanhangad: On International Women's Day, actor-cum-lawyer C Shukkur and Dr Sheena, Head of Department of Law at Kannur University, once again remarried after 28 years.
The registration of the marriage took place under the Special Marriage Act at 10.15 am on Wednesday at the sub registrar office in Hosdurg, in the presence of the couple’s daughters - Khadeeja Jasmine, Fathima Jebin and Fathima Jesa - for whose sake they decided to solemnise their union again.
Shukkur, an eminent lawyer from Kasaragod, married Dr Sheena in October 1994 and their wedding was conducted by Indian Union Muslim League's supreme leader Panakkad Syed Hyder Ali Shihab Thangal.
However, the marriage was under the Sharia law and according to the Muslim Personal Law, daughters get only two-thirds of the share of their father's property, with the rest going to his brothers.
The couple, in order to ensure that their hard-earned property should go to their children only, will marry again under the Special Marriage Act which states that the succession to the property of any person solemnised under it will be governed by the Indian Succession Act.
Shukkur is also known for his role in the movie 'Nna Thaan Case Kodu' released in 2022. Sheena is a former Pro-Vice Chancellor of the Kottayam-headquartered Mahatma Gandhi University.
