    Sania Mirza is all geared up to launch her autobiography, which will reportedly be unveiled by none other than the two big Khans of the tinsel town – Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan.

    According to a report by TOI, SRK will launch her book in Hyderabad on 13th July and Salman Khan will attend the book launch event in Mumbai on 17th July. The Delhi event scheduled on 15th will be graced by Parineeti Chopra, and will also be attended by choreographer turned director, Farah Khan.

    Earlier, Sania Mirza had said that if her biography is made into a biopic, she would love to see Parineeti Chopra slip into her shoes.

    We only wish that happens soon!

    Does SRK get charmed by Sania-like outspoken women?
    ANI | Hyderabad July 13, 2016

    Ladies, all it really takes to charm Shah Rukh Khan is 'elegance,' 'grace,' 'smile' and 'ability to speak' your mind!

    Speaking at the launch of the book 'Ace Against Odds,' written by Sania Mirza's father Imran Mirza that chronicles her rise to the top as one of the most prominent sports personas of India, the Badshah of Romance revealed whether or not he gets charmed by outspoken women.

    "Being outspoken needs to be backed with content and belief. If you are outspoken just for the sake of it, like many are on social media, then that S****; may that be a man or a woman. But if you have something to say and you have faith in it, and somebody is trying to question that belief, then it is the most attractive thing about a woman to speak it out," he told the media here.

    King Khan added, "Elegance, grace, smile and being able to say what is in your mind are the most important qualities of a woman. I truly admire that. I truly look up to that."

    On the work front, the 50-year-old actor will be seen in 'Raees,' which is slated to release in 2017, and Gauri Shinde's next film alongside Alia Bhatt, possibly titled 'Dear Zindagi.
    Tash says thanks.

    Says Sania’s book should inspire people to succeed against the odds.

    Hyderabad: Sania Mirza served an Ace Against Odds in her hometown of Hyderabad on Wednesday by launching her autobiography at an erstwhile Palace turned topline hotel. Fittingly, ‘Badshah of Bollywood’ Shah Rukh Khan was the guest of honour at the function, and called the tennis ace “Racquet Ki Rani.”

    Sania was understandably elated. “I have had a long and entertaining career on and off the court. I think I owed this (book) to myself and my family to present my side of the story so far,” she said.

    Shah Rukh blended in the event. “I have known Sania for years and it’s with personal joy and great happiness that I attend this function. My life has been shaped by a lot of inspiring women, the foremost being my mother,” he said.
    “Sania has done more than anyone to make the country proud. She, along with women like (athlete) P.T. Usha, (boxer) Mary Kom have inspired a lot of youngsters to take up sports. This book should inspire a lot of us to understand that things do happen against the odds as Sania has believed and achieved,” Shah Rukh added.

    Praising Sania’s ‘pride, freshness and beauty’ Shah Rukh felt “her experiences are vital for youngsters to achieve feats against odds.” He even spoofed a famous Bollywood song. “Yeh chand sa roushan chehra, zulfon ka rang sunehra; yeh jheel si neeli aankhen, forehand itna gehra... tareef karoon kya uski, jisne tumhe banaya,” he said to laughter all around.

    SRK recounted his own struggles. “To quote a cliché, there is no alternative to hard work,” he said. “You wake up in the morning and just have to work hard. If I am successful, I work hard to retain it. If I’m not, I work hard to regain it.”

    The actor was in awe of Sania’s grit and determination. “I could connect with the fact that when she got injured and could no longer play singles, she turned it around in the doubles and reached the No.1 spot. We all have an emotional connect with her. Everytime Sania loses, everyone loses a bit as well,” he said.
    Shah Rukh also took the opportunity to bat for the women in the country. “The more love and respect we show our girls and our ladies, we will have many more achievements like Sania’s. So usher in that era and respect women. Men pass snide comments about women but let me tell you there are no bigger achievers than women in the world,” he said.

    Sania termed the three surgeries — to her wrist and both knees — as the biggest setbacks in her career. Getting over the third one, in 2010, was tough. “I was forced to stop doing something I have always wanted to — play tennis. I was so depressed and confined myself to my room most of the time. I think those two-three months were the toughest,” she recalled.

    “People will get to know more about me in the book. I may look tough but am emotional too, and do cry all by myself in the bathroom,” she revealed.
    Sania said she couldn’t have asked for more. “I am blessed to say that I have got so much in my life that I couldn’t even dream about. I always wanted to be No.1 in the world and it was most gratifying when I got there. Another high point is playing at the Olympics with the entire country’s support behind me. I rank these are my biggest achievements,” she said.

    What does she aspire for now? “I want to stay as World No.1 for as long as possible. I would love to finish my career as the No.1 in the world,” Sania signed off.
    Tash says thanks.
