We hear that Bollywood’s Saina Nehwal has been finalised and it’s none other than Shraddha Kapoor. Well yes, Shraddha will be playing Saina’s role in her biopic.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted about the news.
Shraddha Kapoor to play Saina Nehwal in her biopic, titled #Saina... Directed by Amole Gupte. Produced by Bhushan Kumar [TSeries].— taran adarsh (@taran_adarsh) 26 April 2017
Talking to a leading daily, Shraddha confirmed the news and said, "Most girls would have played badminton at some point in their lives in school. I feel so lucky to be playing Saina, who is not just among the world's top badminton players, but also a youth icon. I can't wait to start prepping for my role".
When ace player Saina Nehwal got to know about the news, she seemed elated, "Whoa! That's news to me... I was aware of the film, yes. But I didn't know about this casting. It's great if Shraddha is playing 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 (laughs). A lot of people tell me that we look similar and I think that's a huge compliment, cos Shraddha is very beautiful." said the Olympic winner.
Shraddha took to her Twitter handle to express her joy. She tweeted:
Her journey to the top has been fascinating & I am honored to be given this opportunity to play her in my next film 'SAINA'.— Shraddha (@ShraddhaKapoor) 26 April 2017
The preparation for this film is going to be very, very challenging. It's probably going to be my most difficult film till date.— Shraddha (@ShraddhaKapoor) 26 April 2017
Wish me luck everyone ❤️— Shraddha (@ShraddhaKapoor) 26 April 2017
A basketball player (Half Girlfriend) and now a badminton player, Shraddha is surely exploring her sporty side!
