I LOVE YOU. I love you because you’re real in a sea of fake. Because you’re grounded in a sea of entitled. Because you’re all heart in a sea of manipulators. Because you’re self made, intelligent, humble and funny as hell! But most of all, I love you because you let me be me…(Also- you’re the only person who knows my every secret!!) 🤣 I love you miss. Thankyou for coming into my life. HAPPY BDAY SANUUUUU!!! @mirzasaniar 💕💕
Earlier, while speaking on Kareena Kapoor’s talk show ‘What Women Want’, Sania had said she would be involved creatively in the film. She had told Bebo, “I would like to inspire other girls to pick up tennis racquets or follow their dreams.” Coming back to her friendship with Parineeti Chopra, while talking to Pinkvilla, the tennis player revealed how she is communicating with the actress and said, “Me and Pari have a very random friendship where we don’t talk for weeks in a row and then suddenly we’ll talk like all the time. But we get each other and that’s totally fine. In the morning I think she was playing quarantine antakshari and it was just random. I had not spoken to her in a few weeks and I just sent her ‘Tu tu tu, tu tu tara, todo naa dil humaara’ because the letter was ‘T’ and she totally got it.”
