The long-awaited and much-talked about biopic on Indian tennis sensation, Sania Mirza, is finally a go. Ace producer Ronnie Screwvala has purchased the rights to her life story, and will soon be adapting the same for the big screen.
A call is yet to be taken on who will play the multiple Grand Slam doubles champion on screen, with several A-list actresses currently being considered. A decision will also soon be taken on the Director. Word is that casting choices will only be made once the script is locked. Reportedly, the biopic will focus more on Sania’s personal life, and the struggle and sacrifice she endured to make it big on the global tennis stage, rather than her professional achievements.
Yet another biopic has been added to Bollywood’s growing roster of them. Let’s see which of these upcoming true stories will truly do justice to their inspiring real-life characters.
