Sania (27) says she is very guarded about her personal life and that's the reason she recently rejected a director, who approached her for a biopic.
"I don't want a film to be made on me. I'm a very private person and I don't like to share my intimate details with people and have a film made on it.
"I have been approached by filmmakers and very recently I rejected a film too," said Mirza on the sidelines of the National Children's Film Festival. "But you never know, I may have a change of heart in future.
But if you ask me who I would like to play me on-screen, I would say Deepika Padukone," she said.
Actor Deepika Padukone
In recent years several films have been made on the sportsmen — Paan Singh Tomar, 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag (based on athlete Milkha Singh) and the latest Mary Kom on the life of the Olympic medal-winning female boxer.
Mirza, who is married to Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Mallik, is currently busy with her autobiography, tentatively titled 'Against All Odds' and has already finished writing 26 chapters.
I am comfortable with, I have shared in my book. All that people want to know about me will be more or less answered. Till now I have detailed my life till 2012. We're still planning a few more chapters," she said.
