Sania Mirza poses for a picture on Independence Day

As India celebrates its 72nd Independence Day on Wednesday, the heartwarming wishes are pouring in from inside and across the border. From Pakistan, India's neighboring nation that celebrated its Independence Day on Tuesday, cricketer Shoaib Malik decided to wish Indian fans on the special occasion.

"Wishing Indians all over the globe (specially the one at home) a very #HappyIndepenceDayIndia," Malik tweeted.

Reacting with love over her husband's post, India's ace tennis player Sania Mirza, quoted Malik's post, captioning it: "awe".

Earlier in the day, the 31-year-old tennis professional from Mumbai wished the country on its Independence Day. 

"With freedom in the mind, faith in the words, pride in our souls. Let’s salute the nation. Happy Independence Day," she said on Twitter.

On Tuesday, Mirza had lashed out at a troll, who questioned her nationality and wished her on Pakistan's Independence Day. (Read full story)

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?”
