So it turns out that Sania Mirza is not very good at "Physics, err...Chemistry".

Wonder how much she scored in school? We don't exactly know, but perhaps this little episode might give you some idea. 

Here's what happened. Mirza was a part of KBC Telugu which is hosted by Akkineni Nagarjuna.

 

During the show, Nagarjuna asked her a simple question of chemistry: "Sodium Chloride is the chemical name of which of these substances?" If that wasn't easy enough already, turned out her 'test' had MCQs. So she was given options to pick her answer from: Sugar, Salt, Water or Camphor. 

Her answer: Water!

One can perhaps understand how someone might not know that NaCl is salt. But how one who has been to school can imagine water being anything but H2O is pretty baffling. 

She had to use one of her lifelines on the show — take audience help — to arrive at the right answer. 

Facepalm, Sania! 

At least, Alia Bhatt, who thought Prithviraj Chouhan was the Prime Minister of India didn't have four options to choose from.

The U.S. Open is where Martina Navratilova won four singles titles and nine doubles titles during a career considered one of the best ever in tennis. She still holds the record for most singles and doubles titles in the Open era.

First came a shocking statement from a BJP leader in Telangana, K Laxman, who flayed the TRS government's decision to appoint tennis star Sania Mirza as brand ambassador of the newly created state, terming her as a "daughter-in-law" of Pakistan and questioning her credentials for the honour.

Sania was born in Maharashtra and settled in Hyderabad later and, hence, is a "non-local", he told reporters and sought to dub her a "daughter-in-law" of Pakistan, pointing that she was married to cricketer Shoaib Malik.

The tennis star responded on Twitter (we have also added a few of her tweets from earlier):

Maria Sharapova may have been knocked out of Wimbledon, but she would certainly have been bemused at finding #whoismariasharapova trending worldwide on Twitter.

Clearly the five-time Grand Slam champion had no idea what a storm her casual remark about not knowing who Sachin Tendulkar is would cause.
