Tennis star Sania Mirza on Friday announced that a biopic on her will be made by Bollywood film-maker Ronnie Screwvala. Sania said she has signed a contract for the biopic and the initial work has already begun. “It’s great. The talks have been going on for a while. The contract was signed. We are just looking forward to it,” Sania said on the sidelines of an event.
Sania, the only Indian woman tennis player to win a Grand Slam title (in doubles), said the making of the biopic was in the initial stages. “It’s all going to be mutual understanding. I think that obviously my input is important. Because, it’s my story. So, I will have to.
“We are literally in the very initial stages. So, we just announced it today. It will slowly get into the director, the writing, after that the casting. It’s still a bit long way to go,” she said when asked how she wished the film to come out and her inputs for the film.
Last year on October 30, Sania Mirza gave birth to a baby boy and her husband Shoaib Malik took to Twitter to share the news and wrote, "Excited to announce: It's a boy, and my girl is doing great and keeping strong as usual #Alhumdulilah. Thank you for the wishes and Duas, we are humbled. #BabyMirzaMalik."
Before that, the 32-year-old Indian tennis superstar, has shared numerous photographs on social media where she and her family members were seen attending events related to the baby.
Sania’s biopic will add to earlier biographical films like Mary Kom, Dangal, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag and M S Dhoni.
