Moshin Khan — who married Reena Roy in 1983 — knows a thing or two about problems of inter-nationality marriage, more so when it comes to India and Pakistan. The former opener takes questions from Vijay Tagore on what lies in store for the star couple.

Your thoughts on Shoaib-Sania’s marriage?
I can say a lot but I choose not to. I wish them a happy, peaceful and prosperous future. Both are stars in their respective fields. I don’t know about their future plans but they should plan it carefully. I don’t know if she wants to continue playing but I wish she does.
 

Do you foresee any problems?
Yes, a few people from either side may raise objection against certain things but largely, I don’t think they will have too many problems, in India or in Pakistan.

What about the tension between the countries?
They should be prepared for some kind of tension but these are minor issues. There are many people in both sides who want peace between the nations. I have many relatives in India. I get warm reception there.

Will Pakistanis be comfortable with her tennis outfits?
Look, Pakistan is a Muslim country and Sania is a Muslim. She should keep that in mind. She and Shoaib are sensible persons and they should decide the best way forward for their careers. Pakistanis are warm people and she will get the acceptance.

Did you or your ex-wife face any problems in either country?
I hear that there are millions of families from both nations who are locked in matrimony. Only the celebrities get highlighted. I did not face any problems. The governments have had problems in the past and we might have in the future as well but these things settle down with time. All sportspersons and celebrities have always felt at home. In Pakistan, Indian celebrities are welcome and vice-versa. She made a lot of friends in Pakistan and I have many friends in India.

Any advice for the couple?
Sania is like younger sister and Shoaib is like my younger brother. They could face obstacles culturally and more importantly from the media spotlight. They should tread with the media carefully. It puts them in the centrestage. I would advise them to be cool towards the media.
