On the occasion of Pakistan's Independence Day, a Twitter user wished Sania, who tied the knot with the Pakistani cricketer in 2010. "Happy Independence Day Sania Mirza. Aapka Independence Day aaj hai na? (It's your Independence Day today, right?),” the user said in a tweet.
Instead of ignoring the troll, Sania decided to destroy him as he quoted his tweet, saying: "Jee nahi. Mera aur meri country ka Independence Day kal hai. Mere husband aur unnki country ka aaj. Hope your confusion is cleared. Wese aapka kab hai? You seem very confused. (No. Mine and my country's Independence Day tomorrow. My husband's and his country's Independence Day is today. But when is yours?”
