Lahore, Apr.28 (ANI): Newly married sports couple Sania Mirza and Shoaib Malik have appealed to the Pakistani media to stop intruding into their private life and respect their privacy.
Since their arrival in Pakistan, fans and media have hounded the sports couple, following them everywhere in the country.
"The media needs masala (spice) but it must behave in a way that our personal life does not get affected," said an annoyed Sania, adding that she was surprised over the media frenzy over her wedding.
"It is not like ours is a great big love story," The Daily Times quoted Sania, as saying.
Shoaib also recorded his protest against the heightened media glare over the wedding, saying the media should not have sensationalised his marriage.
"Due to the continuous media glare, I and Sania will not able to live like a normal couple. Besides being a husband, I have to play the role of a security guard," Shoaib said.
Shoania had to face a tough time wading through a huge crowd that had gathered to catch a glimpse of the celebrity couple at the five star hotel they were staying in Lahore.
As they passed through the crowd they faced severe pushing and shoving causing Sania to almost fall but Shoaib jumped into action by taking her into his arms.
The incident had even brought tears into Sania's eyes. (ANI)
