Hyderabad, May 31: Tennis star Sania Mirza is extremely upset. She has lashed out against a proposed film called Hyderabadi Damaad on her controversial marriage to Pakistan cricket star Shoaib Malik, says a media report.
A small time Bollywood filmmaker has launched a film called Hyderabadi Damaad, based on Sania’s life and the controversy surrounding her marriage to a Pakistani cricketer.
Sania’s apprehensions about the content of the film have been further fuelled by the fact that the filmmaker has neither informed her about the film nor sought permission for basing the film on her life.
Hyderabadi Damaad, starring Amar Upadhyay, Ali Merchant and TV star Debina Bonerjee (as Sania Mirza) was launched last week in Mumbai. The film is being produced by PD Garg and directed by Jaiprakash (Market).
The film’s crux is the drama surrounding Sania’s marriage to Shoaib Malik, says the media report. The film also intends to explore the circumstances leading to Sania’s break up with her former fiancée Sohrab Mirza.
Said Sania, “I was surprised to read in newspapers that a director is making a film on me and my marriage. I think that a commercial movie based on my personal life is hardly relevant, but I hope that the concerned director will make it clear to his viewers that the film is merely a fictional account based on his imagination. It is intriguing that I haven’t even been approached (by the filmmakers) regarding this. Very few people in the world would know the real Sania Mirza. It’s a shame if the director is relying on distorted information he’s picked up through inaccurate media coverage.”
