In last few years, bollywood filmmakers are making biopics from various life events and people. ‘Half Girlfriend’ actor Shraddha Kapoor seems to focus more on biopic films. Now she will play on-screen Saina Nehwal in Saina’s biopic film.
Currently Shraddha Kapoor is busy in Haseena: The Queen of Mumbai in which she is Dawood Ibrahim’s sister. Cute actress Shraddha Kapoor confirmed that she is playing Saina’s character in upcoming bollywood biopic.
In this year, Sanjay Dutt’s biopic, Bhushan Kumar and others are going on. While Paan Singh Tomar, MS Dhoni, Merry Com, Sarabjit Singh, Milkha Singh’s biopics released in last 2-3 years.
Director Amol Gupte has been reportedly working on the film now. He has done his research into Saina’s life. Shraddha Kapoor said,
“Most girls have played badminton at some point in their lives in school. I feel so lucky to be playing Saina, who’s not just been the world’s No. 1 badminton player, but is also a youth icon. I can’t wait to start prepping for my role.”
While World’s No.1 Badminton player Saina Nehwal said, “I was aware of the film, yes, but I didn’t know about the casting. It’s great if Shraddha plays me because she is a very talented actress and very hardworking. I am sure she will do justice to the role. The best part is, she is a good friend as well. So it will be easier to teach her some badminton skills. A lot of people did tell me that we do look similar and I think that’s a huge compliment, because Shraddha is very good looking.”
While in January 2017, at an event, Saina had said she would want Deepika to play her role and Deepika was present there and also shown interest.
Currently Saina Nehwal is in China for Badminton Asia Championship 2017. T-Series’ Bhushan Kumar will produce this biopic film and will release in 2018.
