I won’t act in my biopic: Sania Mirza

At 29, she has re­leased her au­to­bi­og­ra­phy, and now, a biopic on her might be on its way. Ten­nis ace Sania Mirza, who is cur­rently ranked No. 1 in the women’s dou­bles rank­ings, says, “There have been talks about it (biopic). Some from the film in­dus­try have ap­proached me... talks are in ad­vanced stage, but we are yet to fi­nalise things.”

Which ac­tor will por­tray her on screen is also “still pend­ing”. Make a sug­ges­tion that she might as well act in the biopic, con­sid­er­ing she was seen on TV in a dance re­al­ity show, Sania says, “Def­i­nitely won’t be me! I am a good ten­nis player and not a good ac­tor, you should do what you are good at.”

An­other rea­son for not turn­ing ac­tor is that she is shy. “I am too shy to act on cam­era,” and adds, “I don’t have the time, ten­nis is my pri­or­ity at the mo­ment... and I am not think­ing of re­tir­ing any­time soon.”

She is a sportsper­son whose style and looks get dis­cussed as much as her on-field per­for­mance, but that doesn’t af­fect Sania’s pri­or­i­ties. “Our en­dorse­ment is not be­cause of how we look or our mar­i­tal sta­tus, it is about our per­for­mance. I don’t even care how I look while play­ing... even when so many peo­ple are watch­ing,” she says.
