Let’s see if Sonam can get an ‘ace’ just like Sania!
Making biographical films has become somewhat of a trend in Bollywood it seems. One of the latest films that is in the works is based on the life of Sania Mirza, known as the best tennis player than India has produced. Director Anees Bazmee has chosen Sonam Kapoor to portray the character of Sania Mirza. The film should definitely be an interesting one as, Mirza leads a very interesting social life in addition to her athletic life.
Much like Mirza’s real life love interest, Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik, the film has casted Akshay Kumar to play an overly flirtatious character who falls for the female tennis star. Although Anees has not completely come forward to say the film is on the biography of Sania, she did admit that any film based on a female tennis athlete would have some resemblance to her story.
The film is to be shot in Canada and Sonam will first receive extensive training in tennis so that she can fulfill the role of a professional in the sport.
