Prior to this announcement, Sania had made headlines for her appearance on the popular OTT series The Great Indian Kapil Show, where she shared the stage with fellow sports legends including boxer Mary Kom, badminton player Saina Nehwal, and sharpshooter Sift Kaur. The episode was filled with laughter and engaging conversations, particularly when host Kapil Sharma brought up an intriguing tidbit about a potential biopic on Sania’s life.

Recalling an old interview where Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan expressed interest in playing Sania’s love interest in the film, Kapil’s revelation surprised Sania. “But before that, I need to have a love interest,” she quipped, eliciting laughter from the audience.

The discussion then shifted to Sania’s preferences for her biopic co-stars. She enthusiastically disclosed her inclination towards Akshay Kumar, stating, “If Shah Rukh ji does the film, I might play myself. And I’ll definitely do it if Akshay Kumar is in it.”
