Feature and Cover Sania Mirza Opens Up About Biopic Possibilities Divorce and Admiration for Akshay Kumar on Kapil Sharma's Show

Sports icons Sania Mirza, Mary Kom, Saina Nehwal, and Sift Kaur recently appeared as guests on Netflix’s “The Great Indian Kapil Show.” During their conversation with host Kapil Sharma, the topic of a Bollywood biopic on Sania Mirza came up. Sania shared her thoughts humorously and candidly, providing an interesting perspective on the idea.

Kapil Sharma noted that Mary Kom had Priyanka Chopra portray her in a 2014 biopic, and Parineeti Chopra played Saina Nehwal in 2021. When asked who she would prefer to play her in a film, Sania joked, “Inki koi behen bachi hain? (Are there any sisters left?)” She continued, “No, I think we have many good actors in our country. Anyone is fine. Or maybe I should play myself.”

Kapil further mentioned that Shah Rukh Khan had once expressed interest in playing Sania’s love interest if a biopic were made. This prompted a momentary awkwardness for Sania, considering her recent divorce from cricketer Shoaib Malik. Lightening the mood, she responded, “But I need to find a love interest first.” When Kapil asked if she would act in her biopic if Shah Rukh starred in it, she said, “If Shah Rukh ji does the film, I might play myself. And I’ll definitely do it if Akshay Kumar is in it.”

Kapil also inquired how Sania managed to get Swiss tennis player Martina Hingis to be her doubles partner, jesting if it was through Hyderabadi biryani. Sania replied humorously, “I took Farah (Khan) along, and she fed us biryani.”

Sania Mirza’s admiration for Akshay Kumar has been evident over the years. In 2014, Akshay attended one of her International Premier Tennis League (ITPL) matches, along with celebrities like Deepika Padukone and Aamir Khan. During the pandemic in 2020, when Sania was in India and Shoaib Malik was in Pakistan, they had a ‘virtual date’ over Instagram live. During a game of “Ditch and Marry,” Shoaib asked her to choose between Tom Cruise and Akshay Kumar. Sania’s response highlighted her long-standing admiration: “I’ve liked Akshay Kumar since Mohra days. I’m not gonna ditch him. When nobody liked Akshay, I liked Akshay.”

The conversation with Kapil Sharma also touched on Sania and Shoaib Malik’s divorce. After months of speculation, Shoaib and Sana Javed posted their wedding photos on Instagram on January 19, 2024. Sania’s family confirmed the separation, stating that she and Shoaib had been divorced for a few months. The family’s statement read, “Sania has always kept her personal life away from the public eye. However, today the need has arisen for her to share that Shoaib and she have been divorced for a few months now. She wishes Shoaib well for his new journey ahead.”

The playful exchange on “The Great Indian Kapil Show” provided insights into Sania Mirza’s life and career, mixing light-hearted moments with personal revelations. It showcased Sania’s sense of humor, her openness about her personal life, and her deep admiration for Akshay Kumar, adding a relatable and humanizing touch to the sports star’s public persona.
