I want Deepika Padukone to play me on screen: Sania Mirza
New Delhi: At a time when Bollywood is making biopics on sports personalities, tennis star Sania Mirza says she doesn't want her life to be seen on the big screen as she is a private person in real life.
Sania doesn't want to share the details of her life for a biopic but says that if anything along the lines of her biopic would happen in the future, she'd like Deepika Padukone to play her role.
“I'm a private person. I don't want a film to be made on me because I don't want to share my intimate details. I'm not that kind of a person, and I have got offers for a biopic previously but I have said no,” she said on the sidelines of the ongoing National Children's Film Festival (NCFF), organised by the Children's Film Society of India (CFSI).
“But if someone puts me on the spot and I have to choose, then I would want Deepika Padukone to play my role,” she added.
Sania, who turned 28 Saturday, is also writing an autobiography which is being edited as of now and the tentative title is “Against All Odds”.
The Indian tennis star attended NCFF Friday along with actresses Dia Mirza and Divya Dutta among others.
