Flying back to Hyderabad after a lightning visit to Delhi where she secured visa from Pakistan High Commission for going to Lahore for a reception, a visibly happy Sania was all smiles and accompanied her father Imran Mirza while addressing the scribes present outside her house.
"I and my family are very happy to announce that I am getting married to Shoaib Malik. Inshaallah the nikah (marriage) will take place on 11th of April in Hyderabad and the walima (reception ) is on 15th in Pakistan," Sania told reporters.
The 23-year-old said she would be lying if she did not expect the development to be a shock but both of them and their families were happy about the marriage. She said she had received messages of best wishes from several people both in India and Pakistan.
Sania Mirza however, refrained herself from adding anything on the furor which the news of her marriage has caused. "We are getting married.
We are not also making any political statement or anything on (Indo-Pak) relations. It's a simple matter. We are getting married.
We are very, very happy and our families are very happy," she said.
On the question about since when was she dating Shoaib, Sania said the matter was personal. "I'm not going to answer nor will Shoaib be comfortable answering personal questions," she said.
She further informed that after marriage, she would settle in Dubai. "Shoaib is a resident if Dubai which I will also become. I will continue to have the passport of India, though. I will continue playing for India and Shoaib will play for Pakistan," she said.
Sania said though she will miss her friends & family, since Dubai has 'so many Pakistanis and Indians living there, I would feel better.'
Asked who she would support in case of an India-Pakistan cricket match, she said, "I will obviously support India but I will also support my husband."
