The name is Mirza: Sania Mirza




For sports people, advent of various sports channels has been a Manna from heaven as it provides them an option to extend their career in the sports of their choice by becoming a commentator of the sports which they played. It is however more of a male prerogative as the transformation in same propensity does not exist for the female of the variety, or rather one should say did not exist till Sania Mirza decided to dabble in this genre. Sania Mirza has not yet formally made the association with any sports channel so far, but through her screen presence and anchoring that she is doing on Sony PIX for the James Bond film festival bears eloquent testimony to her screen presence. She has taken to the television screen like duck to the water and in her own imitable manner has brought a certain sense of enigma to the already enigmatic Bond movies. Her presence in each of the commercial breaks of James Bond movies and the way in which she brings out the quotient of romance, oomph, and glamour drawing from the movie that is playing indeed adds aura to her mystique.

It is a heady concoction that has been devised by the television channel to use Sania Mirza as the anchor of the James Bond movies. Sania always has been an enigma, confidence oozing to the brim and she has through this debut ensured that she is not allowing her fans to forget herself in a hurry as she has perhaps decided her second career.

She has been the role model for generation of girls around the country side and who knows when she finally makes the decision to initiate second innings through television she could through her career inspire scores of girls around the countryside to take up tennis or sports commentating as an alternate career. Sania Mirza has demonstrated that a woman in a film programme is not there just for the glamour quotient but she is also there for her intelligence. So far women tennis players who represented the country after hanging their rackets walked into the sunset, but Sania could change history and follow in the league of Anna Bell Craft, Su Barker, Martina Navratilova, Billie Jean King etc. Advantage of Sania to facilitate successful transition also lies in the fact that quite a lot of international tennis tournaments have started being conducted in country, and with the popularity that Sania Mirza enjoys worldwide who knows she could hold mike in a Rolland Garros, or a Wimbledon as well?

Transition from the field of sports to being a commentator on sports is a change that has come quite naturally. Cricket has been a passion manifest from the craze to listen to the commentary hiding the radio inside the quilt when she warmed up to the excitement of cricket. From that stage the real flame for passion for cricket was lit and growing up in Bangalore with neighbors of the likes of Prasanna, and Rahul Dravid, cricket has become an alter ego. The passion got further accentuated with the advent of Indian Premier League and the intoxication continues to catalyze innovative writing for cricket in its all encompassing view.
