Actor Parineeti Chopra is deep into training mode as she prepares for the Saina Nehwal biopic. The badminton player shared what seems to be the first look of Parineeti from the movie with a special message.
Parineeti will begin shooting for the biopic on Friday, October 11. Sharing the picture, Saina wrote, “Taking a look forward to this journey together! My best wishes to the team #SainaNehwalBiopic #Saina @parineetichopra #AmoleGupte @bhushankumar #DeepaBhatia @sujay.jairaj @tseries.official @tseriesfilms.” Parineeti thanked her and wrote, “Thankyouu my CHAMPION!!!! I am soo nervoussss @nehwalsaina.”
First of all, Shraddha Kapoor used to be finalised for the role of Saina but Parineeti used to be brought in later to replace the Saaho star. Talking approximately the role, Parineeti had said that she used to be nervous, “This project is absolutely perfect for me. Amole (Gupte, director) sir and his team are ensuring I have everything that I need. A great physio team and world-class players have been roped in to train and condition me. Everything from how Saina plays, who she has played with and against, each and every match she has been in has been documented. It’s important to imbibe all that information and present it on screen. I’m happy, but also very nervous.”
