Saina Nehwal Biopic is an upcoming 2020 bollywood biographical sports film directed by Amole Gupte
and produced by Bhushan Kumar under the banner of T-Series. The film is based on the life of Badminton player Saina Nehwal. It stars Parineeti Chopra who will play the titular role as Saina Nehwal. The film was announced on 26 April 2017 by Nehwal on her Twitter account, revealing the details of the film. Earlier, Shraddha Kapoor had signed the film to play Nehwal’s role, and had even started filming in September 2018, but she opted out of the film due to scheduling conflicts. On 15 March 2019, it was confirmed that Parineeti Chopra will be playing the role of Nehwal and stated that the film is slated to release early 2020.
In a statement they said, “Due to circumstances beyond her control, the actress kept giving other films priority over the national badminton champion’s biopic, [so producer] has decided to go ahead with Chopra.” In June, Manav Kaul was finalized to play the role of Pullela Gopichand who is Nehwal’s coach.
The movie will capture Nehwal’s foray into badminton and her most iconic triumphs since she turned pro. It will feature her notable victories in the early 2000s, her first career title win in Manila and her rise to the summit of the women’s rankings in 2015 among other career milestones.
Seems like Bollywood actor Parineeti Chopra is leaving no stone unturned to get into the skin of her character for her upcoming film where she will be essaying the role of ace shuttler Saina Nehwal. Recently, Parineeti Chopra injured her shoulder while shooting for the biopic.
Parineeti has also been posting photographs from her training sessions and it’s safe to say that the actor is certainly sweating it out on the court! Taking to Instagram, Parineeti announced that shooting for the film will commence soon. The actor also posted a picture of herself, dressed in an orange t-shirt and black shorts, after a game of intense badminton at the Thane Badminton Academy.
The film will be releasing soon in 2020. Stay tuned to know more. Will keep you updated with the upcoming information regarding it. Would appreciate for your corporation.
