When Saniya Mirza rose to fame, very few women could make it to the top in India, let alone be the Number 1 doubles player in the world. Even today, it isn’t easy for the Indian woman to play a sport without the politics involved and with full support from her family and the federations. But in a time when almost no woman was making it big in any sport, Sania Mirza had proved that women can do everything that a man can.
Born in Mumbai, Mirza’s family moved to Hyderabad after she was born and since she was six, lil Sania has been playing lawn tennis, and there has been no looking back for her.
But what’s the news in this? Well, our sources tell us that Ronnie Screwvala has acquired the rights to make a film on the life of this legendary player, who fought all sorts of battles, on and off the court.
“Many have been wanting 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,” informs a source close to the development.
Who do you think will play the perfect Sania?
