Imran Mirza, father of Indian tennis ace Sania Mirza who is married to Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Mailk, is angry.
Imran is upset about a magazine article that claims that Sania and Shoaib's marriage is in trouble.
Sania and Shoaib live in Dubai.
The article had alleged that Shoaib’s bad performance in the Pakistani cricket team is a reason for the couple not doing well in the relationship and hence, a strained relationship.
Mirza says,”They have been together during both the US Open as well as the Australian Open.
But then, they are not doing public appearances all the while. And that in no way connotes that they are not together. I would like to clarify that Sania and Shoaib are very much together.”
Shoaib is not the only Pakistani cricketer who has married a celebrity of Indian origin. It can be recalled that former Pakistani opener Mohsin Khan and wooed and married actress Reena Roy. But then Roy walked out after an abusive relationship and returned to India.
Mirza however asserts that all is well on the Indo-Pak border and dismissed reports that influential people from both sides were trying to effect a compromise.
