Indian tennis star Sania Mirza and Pakistan’s cricket champ Shoaib Malik are the ultimate power couple in the neighboring countries but how the two began their love story is something that remained away from the spotlight.
Speaking about how she met the love of her life, the tennis ace spilled the beans on an episode of India Today Inspiration.
Mirza revealed that she had known the cricket champ but fate had to intervene to bring them together.
“We knew each other socially and then we bumped into each other at a restaurant in Hobart where you don’t even see animals/birds after 6 pm, forget people,” she said letting out a chuckle.
“Must’ve been destiny that we met over there to be very honest. Only later I realized that he had actually planned to come to the restaurant because I was there. I was giving destiny all the credit but it was clearly not,” she added.
The couple had tied the knot on April 12, 2010 in Hyderabad, India followed by a reception in Malik’s hometown of Sialkot in Pakistan. The two are parents to one-year-old Izhaan Mirza Malik.
