Unveiling the autobiography of tennis star Sania Mirza, Bollywood superstar Salman Khan said he would like his story to get buried along with him and insisted he would never write an autobiography.

The 50-year-old actor, who launched Sania’s autobiography “Ace Against Odds” on Sunday, said if he will pen down his life it may rake up old wounds. “I think I’ll take my story to my grave. Nahi toh bohot saare graves khul jayenge (otherwise a lot of old graves will be dug up).”

Sania, who was present at the event, said, “He cannot control himself. He tries but he cannot do it...He has to say something.”

Salman said even though the tennis star is not keen to do movies right now, she can give it a try in future. “This is something else. Just look at the picture (on the book cover) She is doing very well in tennis but if she wants to enter films, which she doesn’t, but if she wants to join movies as well she will have this position here (referring to the book).”

“People don’t achieve what Sania has achieved at 29 even in three lifetimes... I think she has lots to say, so before she forgets what she wanted to say she came up with a book. I think that was very wise, sensible decision for her to write her autobiography. And after this there will be part 2,3,4 because she is an achiever and she is going to keep on achieving,” said the Bollywood actor at the event.

Sania, who is friends with several biggies in the industry, roped in Salman Khan as a chief guest to promote her first book, and the actor seemed quite happy to do so.

Salman Khan said that he has known Sania for 14 years, they share an incredible friendship and he truly believes that if Sania makes up her mind to enter the film industry, she will do wonders.

“We all have to struggle. I don’t think anyone has made it without struggle. All the people, who have not made it, have never struggled. Most of them have not struggled as hard as the other person. Everyone thinks that they are the only one struggling but what they don’t realise is that the next person is struggling three times harder than you. So you need to be working ten times harder than what you actually think you’re working,” the Sultan star added.

Salman Khan is currently enjoying the success of Sultan which has done well both critically and commercially.
