Tennis star Sania Mirza on Friday announced that a biopic on her will be made by Bollywood film-maker Ronnie Screwvala.

Sania said she has signed a contract for the biopic and the initial work has already begun.

"It's great. The talks have been going on for a while. The contract was signed. We are just looking forward to it," Sania said on the sidelines of an event in Hyderabad.

 

Sania, the only Indian woman tennis player to win a Grand Slam title (in doubles), said the making of the biopic is in the initial stages.

"It's all going to be mutual understanding. I think that obviously my input is important. Because, it's my story, so I will have to.

"We are literally in the very initial stages. So, we just announced it today. It will slowly get into the director, the writing, after that the casting. It's still a bit long way to go," she said when asked how she wished the film to come out and her inputs for the film.

Sania's biopic will add to earlier biographical films like Mary Kom, Dangal, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag and M S Dhoni: The Untold Story.

Olympic medallist badminton star Saina Nehwal's biopic is also in the making, with Shraddha Kapoor playing the lead role.
