Sania & Shoaib’s child will be named Mirza-Malik

Speaking at the Goa Fest 2018, Sania Mirza told the media that she and husband Shoaib Malik want a daughter whenever they start their family. “Today I will reveal a secret. My husband and I have spoken about it and we have decided that whenever we have a child, he/she will have Mirza-Malik as a surname and not just Malik. He actually wants a daughter,” Sania said during a panel discussion on Gender Bias. Adding further to the statement, Sania also opened up about how her relatives are biased when it comes to sons and they would tell her parents that they should have had a son. She shared that she has not changed her surname post-marriage and, thus, her family name goes ahead with her.


No matter how careful one is about looking different than the rest and how much you plan your looks, there is always that one time when you end up in a room where someone else is wearing the same outfit as yours. Our stars aren’t all that different, it seems. Here are our leading ladies, Mawra and Mahira, caught wearing the same Dhruv Kapoor side-buttoned pants. Mahira paired her pants with a black top, white long coat and deep red clutch, whereas Mawra opted for a white net crop top and a chic bright red backpack. The divas also accessorised their outfits with classic black shades. Though we don’t care much for the over-the-top flared silhouette Mahira is sporting, who do you think is pulling off the pants better?
