As ace tennis sensation Sania Mirza gets ready to tie the knot with Pak cricketer Shoaib Malik, Anees Bazmee has planned to make a film on the sports icon. At the moment the tennis star's relationship is under media scrutiny.
According to a website, the film based on Sania will go on floors in mid-April. Reportedly the film will be shot in Canada and the film will be sans any sensationalism as it is set to be a romantic comedy.
Even though the director is denying that Sania is the subject of his film, the buzz is strong about the similarities between Sonam's role and Mirza's life.
The news portal quoted a source: "Just like Sania, Sonam plays a young, attractive tennis champ and falls in love with a guy, who is completely wrong for her. She soon realises her mistake and turns back before it's too late. Remember Sania calling off her engagement to Sohrab Mirza earlier this year before news of her impending marriage to Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik?"
