Sania has penned the biography at the age of 29. Asked about the same to Salman, the 50 year-old actor said, "I think it is new and different. People do not achieve what she has achieved even if they have to be born in three lifetimes. At 29 I think she has a lot to say, so before she forgets what she has to say, I think it was a very wise and sensible decision to write an autobiography," he said.
Salman said he has no plans to write his autobiography and would like history to get buried along with him. "I think I'll take my story to my grave. Nahi toh bohot saare graves khul jayenge (otherwise a lot of old wounds will open up)."
Salman said even though the tennis star is not keen to do movies right now, she can give it a try in future. "This is something else. Just look at the picture (on the book cover) She is doing very well in tennis but if she wants to enter films, which she doesn't, but if she wants to join movies as well she will have this position here
(referring to the book)."
Sania, who will partner Prarthana Thombare from Maharashtra at the prestigious Olympics Games in Rio heaped praise on the latter, describing her as a very good tennis player.
"I and Prarthana (Thombare) is the first pair, who has won a medal. In Asian Games we have won a women's doubles medal. But besides that, she is a young girl, and she is a good prospect for us. Playing in the Olympics will be great experience for her. She comes from Barshi (in Western Maharashtra) and she plays at the Sania Mirza Tennis Academy for the last year and half," said Sania when asked about Prarthana.
Like always, Salman was also asked about his marriage date, which is rumoured to be November 18, the 50-year-old actor said, "Ye 18th November kuch bees-pachees Novembers se chal raha hai...18th November hota hai ki nahi pata nahi kaunse saal may hota hai, but hoga. (This talk about marriage has been going on since the last 20-25 years. I don't know when it will take place, but it will happen)."
Salman further added, "I know a few...Aapko nahi pata mujhpe kitna pressure aata hai (you don't what kind of pressure I face). By the way, 'I know a few' means those are my mother and sisters."
Salman also said that November 18 is the wedding anniversary of his parents. When asked if it will be his wedding date as well, he said, "Agar woh date calendar may ho toh. Pata chala woh 18th November koi nikaal diya. (Only if that date is there in the calendar. Or else somebody will remove November 18 from it)."
After launching Sania's autobiography, Salman posted few pictures on his social media handle and wrote, "Must read it ."
