Tennis hottie Sania Mirza’s betrothal to childhood friend Sohrab Mirza made headlines all over.
Sohrab is 23, a year older than Sania, and is a commerce graduate from St Mary’s college in Hyderabad, an institution that Sania also attended.
He is pursuing an MBA degree in Britain. His family is into the real estate business and catering, and his father Adil Mirza is a partner in the popular bakery chain, Universal Bakers, in Hyderabad. Sohrab’s grandmother Shaheda Begum is said to be from the royal family of Hyderbad.
A friend of Sohrab’s shared with HT City, “He is a real popular and friendly guy. Since his family owns a chain of bakeries, whenever we had a party, he would arrange for the cake and goodies.”
Sohrab has also been reportedly an active member of the international student body AIESEC, though at present he may not be with them.
It has been reported that their families had arranged the match, though the two have known each other since their school days.
