Sania Mirza green signals her biopic; who should play the tennis star onscreen?
Whether it be of politicians or sportsperson, biopics are raining in Bollywood these days. After the biopics such as ‘Mary Kom’, ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ and ‘Dhoni: The Untold Story’ were appreciated by the critics and audiences, Bollywood is all set to receive yet another story based on India’s Tennis star Sania Mirza.
Though Sania Mirza has said yes to her biopic, no actress is announced as the lead yet. Earlier, Sania had expressed a desire for Parineeti Chopra to play the lead in her biopic as she believed they have the same chest size. Will the makers think of the same name or do they have their preferences in mind? Now readers, what do you think? Who should play the role of Sania Mirza? Whether Parineeti Chopra, Alia Bhatt, Sara Ali Khan or someone else.
Notably, Tennis star Sania Mirza on Friday announced that a biopic on her will be made by Bollywood filmmaker Ronnie Screwvala of RSVP productions. Sania further added that she has signed a contract for the biopic and the initial work has already begun.
Talking to the media on the sidelines of an event, India’s ace Tennis player said, “It’s great. The talks have been going on for a while. The contract was signed. We are just looking forward to it.” When asked about how involved she would be in the project, she said, “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.”
Sania, the only Indian woman tennis player to win a Grand Slam title (in doubles), also said, “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.”
Importantly, Sania Mirza is the winner of six Grand Slam titles. She is married to Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik.
On the other hand, Ronnie’s production house RSVP delivered two back-to-back hits with ‘Kedarnath’ starring Sushant Singh Rajput and ‘Uri: The Surgical Strike’. While ‘Kedarnath’ went on to collect over Rs. 66.52 crores, the Vicky Kaushal starrer has so far collected over Rs. 200 crores and is still enjoying a good run at the box-office.
