In the video Sania said: "My father is someone who has supported me always, no matter what. I can think of countless incidents where I can tell you that he has believed my dreams and followed my dreams with me. My father, mother (Nasima), all of us together used to drive because that was financially the most viable thing to do from one city to the other. Once, we had driven for 36 hours to go and try and play a tournament just so I could play a tournament for Under-16 India. That has made me a much stronger person today. The belief that he is has shown in me and followed my dreams with me makes him the most special father. I want to thank him for being who he is to me and helping me be the person I am."
