MUMBAI: Sport biopics seem to be the flavour of the season as several films have been made on players such as Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Milkha Singh, Mary Kom and various others.
Furthermore, Shraddha Kapoor will be seen playing badminton player Saina Nehwal while Harshvardhan Kapoor is gearing for the role of retired professional shooter Abhinav Bindra.
Another biopic may be in the offing on Indian ace tennis player Sania Mirza. The former world No. 1 in doubles has won six Grand Slam titles, is also a well-known figure in Pakistan due to her marriage with cricketer Shoaib Malik.
According to the Mumbai Mirror, renowned producer Ronnie Screwvala will make the film and has already purchased the rights for the film.
“Many wanted to make a film on Sania’s life for a while now and Ronnie has finally bagged the rights for it. The story will be a balance of her professional and personal life with the latter getting more prominence. The makers will zero down on a director soon, after which they will begin the casting process,” a source told the Indian daily.
