The 27-year-old tennis ace, who is known for her sporty chic look, sashayed down the ramp in a white maxi dress embroidered from the bottom. She kept her look minimal in just ear-rings with her hair falling on one shoulder.
"It's fun to walk the ramp. Ritu is a dear friend and brilliant designer. I am walking the ramp after a year and it's something I don't do often. Like any other girl, I love fashion a lot. I love to dress-up for occasions. I don't follow trends and love comfortable clothes," Sania said after the show.
Apart from her tennis commitments, Sania is seen these days in Bollywood parties with her Pakistani cricketer husband Shoaib Mailk. Asked if she is looking at a career in films too, Sania said, "I'm too shy to face a camera. Bollywood is not my cup of tea. I love to watch Bollywood films."
The Incheon Asiad gold medal-winner, said she loves prefers wearing long outfits when off court.
"My profession demands me to wear short clothes, but I'm not comfortable with short stuff off court. I like longer stuff and gowns."
