Saina Nehwal’s biopic featuring Shraddha Kapoor is ready to hit the floors. All rumours and reports around delay in the film because the makers weren't happy the way Shraddha was picking up the game have been brushed aside and shoot dates have now been announced.



The biopic, titled Saina, based on badminton champion, is in pre-production stage, says co-producer, Priya Gupta. The film’s director, Amole Gupte, had told the media in August, “[Shraddha] is currently going through an intensive regimen with Jitesh Padukone (former badminton player) and is practically transforming herself into [Saina] Nehwal. She is committed. Playing [the role] will not be easy, so I want Shraddha to be ready before we start rolling.”

She also cleared all the rumours about Shraddha being unfit for the role. Gupta stated, "There is absolutely no truth in the reports. We will start shooting at the end of February. Also, Shraddha was busy shooting for Saaho." Amol Gupte too confirmed reports , "The shooting is happening at the end of February and beginning of March."

Saina Nehwal has been personally coaching the actress to brush up her badminton skills. Other actors have also been finalised, and the full cast will be announced in a couple of weeks. The film is slated to release in 2018.
