Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan has shown interest in producing film on the life of tennis sensation of Sania Mirza. 

“Whenever there is a movie made on Sania, I think it will be very inspiring and it will be fantastic,” Khan told reporters here last evening after formally launching Sania’s autobiography, titled ‘Ace Against Odds’.

“And I don’t know... ask her if she will let me play her love interest. But, I will produce it for sure,” he said in a lighter vein.

Shah Rukh also expressed hope that Indian sports films will soon be able to make a mark on international platform.
“Someway down the line when sportswomen and sportsmen films are made we feel extremely patriotic also from whichever part of the world they are made. When it’s an Indian sportsperson you will feel for the country,” he noted.
“We have a country somehow perhaps apart from a few sports, we have never made a mark internationally. Inshah Allah...that will happen very things are progressing,” Khan said.

He said Sania’s book will be quite inspirational.

“I think the book like this will obviously inspire a lot of us. Nothing can come in the way and there can be no obstacles when you have determination. I genuinely believe this. I have always followed her (Sania’s) career and she has brought so much freshness and so much beauty to all the sports lovers like me,” the 50-year-old actor said.

Appreciating Sania’s grit, determination and love for the sport to rise to the top ranking in doubles game despite her injury, he said, “She (Sania) had an injury and she could not continue with the singles career but she twisted it around and she became the No.1 in doubles.

“All this stuff means she is not giving up the love for sports...and that connects me to great sportsperson like Sania and every time Sania loses somewhere...she represents our country...I think all of us lose a little bit,” Khan said.

“We all will take away something fantastic from this book...we all will have some learning lesson. Her experiences are very vital and to understand how you fight against things which are going against you,” he said, adding that she’s just truly absolutely inspiring and there should also be a part-two of this book.
