Sports biopics are on a roll in Bollywood in recent times. We have seen massive success in the form of films like MS Dhoni biopic, Dangal, Sultan etc, and now we are all set to witness the biopic of one of the most successful badminton players in the country; Saina Nehwal.

Actress had earlier revealed that she had undergone rigorous training and is keeping a tight watch on her fitness and eating habits.

According to this source, “Parineeti is neck deep in the shoot for her next, the biopic on ace badminton player Saina Nehwal.

Talking more about the film, a biopic on Saina Nehwal was announced way back in 2017. Bhushan Kumar production had bagged the project and had earlier picked Shraddha Kapoor to play the main role. Shraddha had started the shooting for the movie and had to reject it later due to her earlier commitments.

Shraddha had clarified on this saying, “Street Dancer suddenly came to me and since Remo Sir gave me ABCD 2, it was between Saina and Street Dancer that I had to choose and Remo Sir is one of my guru so I couldn’t say no to him. I just couldn’t. It was a tough decision to make between the two”.

Although we missed Shraddha playing this role, but Parineeti seems fitting in the role for now. She looks impressive in the posters till now and the way she is putting hard word into the preparations, we are set to see a stellar performance by her.

In addition to Parineeti in the movie, we will se Manav Kaul in the role of Saina’s coach. Directed by Amole Gupte, the movie is set to release in early 2020.
