Cricketer Shoaib Malik appeared alongside actor Ushna Shah on Nida Yasir’s sehri show, on which the ace athlete made a revelation about his wife Sania Mirza.

Shoaib revealed that Sania ate a lot of apples so that her son’s complexion would be fair at birth on her mother’s suggestion. “My mother in law fed a lot of apples to Sania for our son’s fair complexion.”

He added, “Kehte hain is se gora hota hai bacha.”

Host Nida Yasir said that this a new myth that she has discovered. She added her own experience of colour shaming on social media.

The Indian Tennis star earlier gave us a peek into her and Izhaan Mirza Malik’s dua lesson, where Izhaan was reciting a dua Sania taught him.

Sharing a video on Instagram, Mirza said that she is a “proud mumma” because Izhaan “learnt both these duas in a span of 5 days.”

“His pronunciation will improve InshaAllah,” said Sania. “But I am so proud of him that he knows the dua you recite before sleeping and the safar dua (which he needs a lot since we travel so much).”

Mirza often shares adorable videos of her son Izhaan on social media, much to the delight of her and Shoaib Malik’s fans.
