View Full Version : Sania Mirza's Engagement Ceremony

Jul 10th, 2009, 08:42 PM

Tennis sensation Sania Mirza looked stunning in her specially created green and gold coloured dress, as she got engaged to her childhood friend and a family acquaintance Mohammed Sohrab Mirza at a private ceremony held amid tight security at the Taj Krishna hotel in Hyderabad on Friday night.

Sohrab wearing a black Armani suit was accompanied by his parents He presented Sania with a Rs 10 lakh worth 2 carat diamond solitaire ring at the ceremony, marked by the Muslim traditions with a touch of Deccani and Iranian culture.

Sohrab Mirza's family originally hails from Iran and the same was evident both in the ceremony and the impressive dinner laid out for more than 300 guests, mostly relatives and friends.

Though the list of invitees included big names like Sachin Tendulkar and Yuvraj Singh,they were not among the guests present at the occasion. Mahesh Bhupati, Sania's mentor as well as mixed doubles partner, Telugu film star Vishnuvardhan and his wife Veronica were present to witness the grand occasion.

The families of both the girl and the boy came with loads of gifts on trays covered with the red coloured satin cloths with gold embroidery work in purely Hyderabadi style. The trays were loaded with the dresses, jewelry, fruits, dry fruits, bangles among other gifts.

While Sohrab's family gifted Sania 11 dresses of different styles that were designed by different designers, Sania's family presented six dresses and a diamond watch to their would-be son-in-law.

Interestingly the famous anchor and film personality Rakhshanda Khan accompanied Sania as her bridesmaid.

After the ceremony was over, the guests enjoyed the delicacies including several varieties of famous Hyderabadi Biryani.

The police had a tough time to keep away the huge contingent of media as well as a motley crowd of local fans.

Media, which was kept away from the ceremony, literally laid the siege on the entrance of the hotel trying to shoot the occupants of every car entering the hotel. While Sania sitting at the backseat of her car ducked to avoid the camera glare, some other important guests used the back entrance of the hotel to avoid media attention.

Meanwhile, the fans and admirers of Sania flooded her home with cakes that had various messages expressing their feelings written on it. "Congrats Sania and Sohrab" was one of them.

Engagement ceremony is not common in my city,I remember when I was a little kid,it was common in my hometown,a very far west countryside.But you can hardly see an engagement ceremony now in some big cities.

I saw Sania Mirza up close at a US Open Match. That picture does not do her justice because she is 10 times more beautiful in person.

So Disrespectful
