Sania said “I married a person, not a Pakistani”


“I was marrying a person, not a Pakistani, people try to make it political but we were very clear that we were two individuals who were getting married just like normal people,” Sania said in her first interview to a TV Channel. .

Indian tennis ace Sania Mirza has said that she was not a daughter-in-law of Pakistan but the wife of Shoaib Malik, as she did not marry a Pakistani but a person.

“I was marrying a person, not a Pakistani, people try to make it political but we were very clear that we were two individuals who were getting married just like normal people,” Sania said in her first interview with CNN after her marriage.

“Everyone had an opinion, everyone wanted to have a say, but the most important thing is that now we are relieved as we are married,” she said.Sania might have tied the knot but tennis continues to be her focus.

“My immediate goal is to play in Commonwealth games in India. I have played in Asian games before but this time it’s in India so it’ll be more special for me, I am more excited about it, I’m also going to play in Wimbledon,” she said.

When asked about the change in her life post-marriage, the tennis star said she’s clear about the fact that marriage is not going to change anything for her. “I never thought I would get married so soon,” she added.

While talking to media Shoaib Malik said that he was bowled many bouncers in India before marriage but he continued to parry them, as he did not lose heart despite hard times and he learnt a lot in that situation. He said that Sania would continue to play for India.

He said that the parents supported both of them on the Ayesha Siddiqui issue. Sania revealed that she could find anything to eat on the occasion of her marriage. She said that many things happened in connection with the marriage, which were strictly personal. She said that people must realise that they had their private life and their marriage had done and now all the matters had come to an end. She said that Shoaib had informed her everything about Ayesha and all these things were the matter of past as they both were extremely happy now and tied in a strong relationship. She said that she married a Pakistani not Pakistan and this marriage should not be given a political tinge. She said that they would visit Pakistan soon.

Shoaib Malik said that he would try his level best to keep Sania happy. Sania said that their love was not of first sight but of third one. She said that she met Shoaib Malik in a Hobart restaurant in 2004 and next day he with Waqar Younas came to watch her match. She said that she found Shoaib simple and attractive and decided to marry him after the break of her engagement with Suharab and they both decided it and both the families supported them in this regard. She said that Shaoib did not propose her and she did not think to marry so early. She said they never experienced any uncertainty between them.

    It is none of anybody’s business to get into the personal matters of any body. Celebrities are human. They need their privacy and marriage is too personal a matter to be discussed on national or international print and electronic media. Leave them alone and discuss other subjects which are not personal. Discuss peace in the world. Discuss the disasterous situations in the world and the means to overcome and prevent them.
