Parineeti Chopra revealed that the shooting of the film will commence in October this year.
Parineeti Chopra will be essaying the role of ace shuttler Saina Nehwal. The 30-year-old actor posted pictures on Instagram where she is seen practicing rigorously to get into the character and learn the art of playing the game. She sleeps on the badminton court after a training session while in another.
Earlier, Shraddha Kapoor was to play the lead role in the biopic and had even started shooting for it, but she quit the project due to scheduling conflicts post her diagnoses with dengue. The film’s first look featuring Shraddha was also released by the makers. Amole Gupte is running the biopic and is anticipated to publish in 2020.
An exhausted Parineeti wrote, “Before ………. and After! Sania Nehwal HOW DO YOU DO THIS! Saina Nehwal Biopic Training Shoots Starts In October,” stunned by how Saina manages to maintain the energy level while practicing.
Parineeti will be seen next in Bhuj: The Pride Of India, Jabariya Jodi, Sandeep Aur Pinky Farrar and the Hindi remake of The Girl On The Train.
