Not too long ago, we had reported that the much-delayed schedule of Saina Nehwal biopic has returned on track. Although Shraddha Kapoor has kicked off the shooting of the film, it seems that the shoot of the actress has been put on hold. Reason? We hear that Shraddha has been detected with dengue and she will be resuming the shoot once she recoups.
Sources have confirmed the details in recent reports where they spoke about how the actress started feeling unwell a few days ago. The source also asserted that it was on September 27 that she stopped shooting because that was the day she was detected with dengue.
Producer of the film, Bhushan Kumar too has spoken in these reports giving details about Shraddha’s health.
