Shraddha Kapoor seems to be on a biopic spree. The actor who is busy with Haseena: The Queen of Mumbai in which she is playing Dawood Ibrahim’s sister Haseena Parkar will also play India’s foremost badminton player, Saina Nehwal. The actor has confirmed that she is playing Saina in an upcoming biopic, which will be directed by Amol Gupte. He has reportedly been working on the film for a while now. The director has researched into Saina’s life and has now decided on Shraddha as the cinematic face of Saina. Speaking to ToI, Shraddha 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.”
Speaking to the daily, Saina said it was news to her. “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.”
Everybody is looking forward for the work done by her.
