~ She also answers some poignant questions ~
Tennis star Sania Mirza has done her first pregnancy shoot for the Sunday magazine of the Hindustan Times, Brunch. Her cover and pictures will be out in the issue dated Aug 12, 2018. The photographs were shot by ace photographer Rohan Shrestha at The Park Hyderabad earlier this week.
The first look picture of the cover is out and the mom-to-be looks adorable. In the picture, Sania is looking into a mirror, with the reflection serving as the main image. She is wearing a lace top from Zara, and looks heavily pregnant. However, in the interview inside, she says this is a recent occurrence. “Because I am an athlete and have more muscle tone, my bump was hardly showing until a couple of weeks ago”, says Sania.
Currently, Sania Mirza is 28 weeks into her pregnancy, and is due in October. She is married to former Pakistani cricket captain Shoaib Mallik, and as two people representing rival nations in their own sport, the relationship has been filled with controversy. The couple lives in Dubai, but visits India and Pakistan often.
In the story, Sania Mirza admits that she plans to deliver her baby in Hyderabad. The interview asks poignant questions: Is this going to be a Love Child of India and Pakistan? Would the baby be Indian or Pakistani?
