Shraddha Kapoor has been persuaded for playing Saina Nehwal in her biopic. Shraddha Kapoor is already working on Haseena Parker’s biopic. Recently the first poster of the movie was released and Shraddha got praises for her bold avatar as Haseena Parker.
The actress,who is currently gearing up for her next release ‘Half Girfriend’, confirmed it in her statement to Bombay Times that she is going to play Saina Nehwal. Excited to take up the role, the actress 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.”
Biopics are the new favourites amongst film makers these days. Now the next sports person to lend her story to big screen is Saina Nehwal. The film will be directed by Amol Gupte and produced by Bhushan Kumar.
Saina, who is currently busy with Badminton Asia Championships in China, was very thrilled to hear Shraddha would be playing her in the movie, ” 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, “ Saina added.
