Sania Mirza's farewell bash was a star-studded affair!

Sania bid goodbye to her illustrious career at the Lal Bahadur tennis stadium in Hyderabad, the venue where she signalled her arrival on the big stage with a historic WTA singles title triumph nearly two decades ago, before she celebrated with her family and close friends at the Trident Hyderabad on Sunday.


Music maestro A R Rahman clicked a selfie with Sania and her son Izhaan Mirza Malik.

'Celebrating tennis icon @mirzasaniar #inspiration #trialblazer #prideofindia', Rahman captioned the Instagram post.
