Sania Mirza confirms sister Anam’s marriage to be held in December
Tennis star Sania Mirza has confirmed Sister Anam Mirza’s marriage with former Indian cricket captain’s son.
Sania shared that her sister, a fashion designer, is set to marry former Indian cricket captain Mohammad Azharuddin’s son, Asad.
“She is actually getting married in December. We just came back from her bachelorette trip in Paris. We are really excited,” Sania Mirza told.
Anam shared a picture from her bridal shower recently.
Taking to Instagram, she has also posted photos with soon to be husband, Asad.
Her first marriage to former husband Akbar Rasheed in November 2016 ended in divorce two years later.
Speaking about her own marriage, Sania recently revealed that she was once asked to stop playing as “no one would marry” her if her complexion turned “dark” due to the rigors of an outdoor sport.
Sania, who has three doubles and an equal number of mixed doubles Grand Slams to her credit, reflected on the challenges she faced during a panel discussion on women and leadership.
Sania remains India’s most successful woman tennis player with 3 doubles and mixed doubles Grand Slam titles to her credit.
She had risen to a career-high world No. 27 in mid-2007 in the WTA singles chart.
Married to former Pakistan cricket team captain Shoaib Malik, Sania is currently working towards a comeback to the professional circuit next year after taking a break to become a mother.
