By now we all know that Shraddha Kapoor will soon be seen playing the role of ace badminton player Saina Nehwal in a biopic on the shuttler. In fact, to get into the part, Shraddha has been training vigorously to get the sportsperson’s mannerisms and playing style down. Well, finally the makers of the Saina Nehwal biopic released the first image of Shraddha in and as Saina Nehwal.
By the looks of it Shraddha’s practice for months including many 6 am training sessions while juggling other commitments has paid off and how. Looking every bit the badminton player Shraddha talks about training for the film saying, “I have already clocked 40 classes of badminton in preparation for this biopic. It’s a really tough sport, but I am enjoying myself. To get an insight into the life of a sportsperson is fascinating. Saina’s journey itself is so interesting — right from her misses to her injuries and victories. I can relate to her journey in a big way, because I have gone through similar experiences in a different field. Despite everything, she has not let her focus shift and that’s what’s truly inspiring.”
As for the film itself, the ‘Saina Nehwal biopic’ is produced by Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series and went on floors on September 22, 2018. Starring Shraddha Kapoor as Saina Nehwal, the film is directed by Amole Gupte.
