Unfair that I have to assert my Indian-ness: Sania to NDTV

Speaking exclusively to NDTV, sports icon Sania Mirza today said "I will not let anyone question my Indian-ness". Ms Mirza's interview is the first since a BJP leader from Telangana generated national outrage after describing the 27-year-old tennis star as "the daughter-in-law of Pakistan" on account of her marriage to Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik. K Laxman of the BJP said the government of Telangana should not have chosen Ms Mirza as its brand ambassador because she did not participate in the movement that climaxed in the creation of India's youngest state.

Ms Mirza, who broke down during her interview to NDTV, said "I will not let people like this break me" and underscored it is unfair that "that I have to keep asserting my Indian-ness." Here is her interview to NDTV Group Editor Barkha Dutt.
