Indian tennis star Sania Mirza recently announced that a biopic on her is in the works and will be made by Bollywood film-maker Ronnie Screwvala.
It has been reported that a contract has been signed and the initial work has started. According to The Hindu, Mirza was quoted as saying, “It’s excitement combined with nervousness—a ‘butterfly in your stomach’ feeling—when you are about to let your life story out to the world.”
“It’s what I felt when my biography was written and I feel exactly the same when my journey is going to be presented on the big screen. I know it’s in good hands with an astute producer like Ronnie, who’s known for telling stories impactfully. I am so excited to partner with him and his team at RSVP and honestly can’t wait for it to go on floors,” she added.
Previously cricketers MS Dhoni and Mohammad Azharuddin, hockey player Sandeep Singh, athlete Milkha Singh and boxer Mary Kom have had films made on them.
