Another sports biopic? Sania hopes Deepika Padukone plays her role.


Tennis star Sania Mirza says she does not want a biopic made on her life, but if something like this ever happens, she would like Deepika Padukone to play her on screen.

Sania (27) says she is very guarded about her personal life and that's the reason she recently rejected a director, who approached her for a biopic.

"I don't want a film to be made on me. I'm a very private person and I don't like to share my intimate details with people and have a film made on it.

"I have been approached by filmmakers and very recently I rejected a film too," said Mirza on the sidelines of the National Children's Film Festival. "But you never know, I may have a change of heart in future.

But if you ask me who I would like to play me on-screen, I would say Deepika Padukone," she said.

In recent years several films have been made on the sportsmen - Paan Singh Tomar, 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag (based on athlete Milkha Singh) and the latest Mary Kom on the life of the Olympic medal-winning female boxer.

Mirza, who is married to Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Mallik, is currently busy with her autobiography, tentatively titled 'Against All Odds' and has already finished writing 26 chapters.

Whatever details I am comfortable with, I have shared in my book. All that people want to know about me will be more or less answered. Till now I have detailed my life till 2012. We're still planning a few more chapters," she said.
