In a cute reminder to this year’s star-studded wedding of Akash Ambani and Shloka Mehta, India’s tennis star Sania Mirza has announced her sister Anam Mirza’s pre-wedding celebrations. Anam, a fashion designer, is all set to marry Mohammad Asaduddin, the son of former Indian cricket captain Mohammad Azharuddin.
Sharing a photo from Anam’s bridal shower function, Sania wrote, “Let’s get you married my baby girl.”
For her bridal shower, Anam had chosen to wear a white printed T-shirt with a pink tulle skirt. She also chose to flaunt a blooming floral crown also known as Greek Goddess headband. Anam too took to Instagram to post a series of photos from the function as she wrote, “Life happens, and there are moments you feel so damn grateful. I’ve been feeling that for an whole week now. While life was happening I looked around yesterday at my Bridal Shower and I realised I’ve been lucky enough to find the best of friends and family. Absolutely thrilled and grateful.”
She concluded her post by announcing, “Let’s kick start #AbBasAnamHi officially.”
The Mirzas are royalty in Hyderabad just like the Ambanis in Mumbai. What makes the alliance between Anam and Asad even more special is Azhar’s pedigree as one of the most successful captains of the Indian cricket team. Azhar, who led India both in One Day International and Test matches for a number of years, is currently the President of the Hyderabad Cricket Association.
The pre-wedding functions of Akash and Shloka too had last for several days before they finally got married in March this year.
Sania had confirmed in October this year that her younger sister Anam will marry Asad. “She is actually getting married in December. We just came back from her bachelorette trip in Paris. We are really excited,” she had told Times of India.
Sania had said that her sister was ‘marrying a lovely boy.’ “His name is Asad and he happens to be the son of Mohammad Azharuddin and we are really excited about it,” the tennis star had added.
Anam too had taken to Instagram to announce that she was about to get married. She was posing with a ‘Bride to be’ ballon seen on the glass wall in the background.
Both Anam and Asad have been dating each other for a while, but it’s only now that Sania has officially confirmed their relationship status. Sania had first declared Asad ‘family’ by sharing a photo of herself with him.
