After the success of her autobiography ‘Ace Against Odds’, movie makers have shown an interest in turning her book into a movie. After the recent success of MS Dhoni’s biopic, movie makers in Bollywood are looking to make more of such sports biopics in the future.
“There are some talks going on, but there’s nothing concrete right now. I’m a private person, so it is a difficult ask of me to open up completely. There were some parts, even in the book, that were difficult for me to write about,” said the 30-year-old in an interview to Al Jazeera.
Bhag Milkha Bhag, Mary Kom and Dangal are some of the most notable movies that have been released in recent years with all of them acquiring significant success at the box office.
Sports personalities have always had large fan bases in India and if a movie will be made on Sania Mirza then it would be safe to say that it would be one of the most awaited films of the year. (Is A Biopic on Sania Mirza on the cards?)
