There is no denying the fact that female sportspersons of India are making the country proud by winning medals and tournaments and Sania Mirza is one of them. Sania is India’s tennis sensation and not only her game but also her intelligence and beauty have made people fallen in love with her. She showed her intelligence once again in the talk show “Yaaron Ki Baarat”, which is hosted by actor Riteish Deshmukh and director Sajid Khan.Sania indeed broke many hearts when she decided to marry Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik. This decision of hers was criticized also considering the tension in the Indo-Pak relations, which has prevailed since partition.
Sania attended the talk show with her friend and actress Parineeti Chopra and there Sajid asked a question which might have made anyone go crazy but Sania handled it pretty well.
Sajid asked Sania,
“I would like to ask you on behalf of every individual in India and Pakistan, you have been married for six years now, now God-willing you will have kids. If your child goes on to become a sportsperson, will he represent India or Pakistan?”
This was a very confusing question but she replied with a smile,
“I pray that our child doesn’t become a sportsperson, honestly, we have never had a discussion or argument on this topic. We actually don’t know. Maybe he doesn’t play sports, but become an actor, or whatever he does, or a teacher, or a doctor. That’s such a far thought that we haven’t thought about it. I am very proud to be an Indian and he is very proud to be a Pakistani. But together we are very proud to be husband and wife.”
Listening to her answer, Riteish exclaimed,
“Amazing, amazing, I think we can get such examples in India and Pak only, You’re symbol of love and hope for both the countries.”
Here’s actual conversation that happened in Hindi language:-
Sajid – Aapki shaadi ko 6 saal ho gaye, god willing aapke bache honge.. Agar aapka bacha bada hoke sportsman bane toh wo kaunse desh ke liye khelega
Sania – Main tauba karti hu wo sportsman na bane (giggles)
Sajid – Par wo kaunse desh ke liye khelega
Sania – Actually humne honestly es baat pe na hi kabhi baat ki hai, na hi humne kabhi argument kiya hai.. We actually don’t know.. May be wo sports na khele, may be wo actor bane.. I don’t know wo kuch bhi kare, chahe wo teacher bane, doctor bane, wo itne far ka thought hai ki humne kabhi socha bhi nahi hai…. Lekin I am very proud to be an Indian and he is very proud to be Pakistani and together we are very proud to be Husband and wife..
Riteish – Amazing amazing, I think aisi misaal Hindustan Pakistan mein hai… You’re symbol of love and hope for both the countries
What a classy reply Sania! You truly won every heart!
