Sports based biopic rule the roost at the box office and the same on star badminton player Saina Nehwal shouldn’t be an exception either. Well with the news it’s making, the traction it has received it is poised to be a super hit.
But before that, the lady who will play the role of the Olympic Bronze medalist needs to be sorted out. As the news has come that Shradhha Kapoor who was originally supposed to play the role has decided to drop out of the Saina Nehwal biopic.
The first look of Shraddha as Saina left everyone completely in awe of the resemblance. And moreover, Shraddha had been training with Badminton coaches to perfect her moves as the ace shuttler.
However, all seems to be down the drain as Shraddha Kapoor has decided to drop out of Saina Nehwal biopic and Paineeti Chopra has been roped in to play the shuttler.
It is said that Shraddha has backed out from the film due to scheduling issues. This year, Shraddha is doing back to back films. As of now, she is busy shooting for Chhichorre and then will be shooting for Street Dancer 3D post which hermuch-awaited Saaho will be releasing. Thus, she was not able to commit dates to Saina Nehwal biopic.
Amidst this, Parineeti Chopra showed a keen interest in the film and hence, was roped in to play Saina Nehwal. As of now, Parineeti Chopra will be gearing up and training for the role and once ready, she will shoot for the film. Bhushan Kumar, one of the producers confirmed the news and said, “We want to wrap up Saina by this year-end for an early 2020 release, so going ahead with the project is a decision taken by mutual consent. We are glad Parineeti has come on board for the film. Saina has made every Indian proud and we can’t wait to take her story to the world in the year of the Olympics.”
Saina Nehwal biopic is being directed by Amol Gupte and is being produced by Bhushan Kumar.
