Indian tennis sensation Sania Mirza and her cricketer husband Shoaib Malik will be declared brand ambassador of Pakistan's Population Welfare Ministry when the newly-wed couple reach the neighbouring country.
Pakistan has announced that the two "superstars" would be its ambassador to help the country control rising population.
"When they (Sania-Shoaib) reach Pakistan...They will be designated brand ambassador at an official function," Pakistan's Population Welfare Minister Firdous Ashiq Awan told reporters at an ASSOCHAM meet here.
The minister had attended the widely-publicised marriage in Hyderabad.
She said Sania-Shoaib marriage has helped in melting the "glacier" created between India and Pakistan after the Mumbai terror attacks in 2008.
When asked if she would like Sania to play for Pakistan, the visiting minister said, "It is up to Sania".
Post-marriage, Sania and Shoaib are expected to settle in Dubai.
In an interview to PTI, Sania has said tennis remained on top of her agenda and she is focusing on doing well in the October 3-14 Commonwealth Games in Delhi, followed by the Asian Games in Guangzhou, China.
