After facing a series of delays and countless reports about it being shelved, the upcoming biopic, Saina, finally mounted the shooting floor a couple of days back. Based on the life of ace badminton player, Saina Nehwal, the movie is being helmed by renowned writer-director Amol Gupte. Actress Shraddha Kapoor, who was recently seen in Stree (2018) and Batti Gul Meter Chalu (2018), plays Saina Nehwal in the biopic. Today, the makers of the much-anticipated offering unveiled the first look of the actress and trust us Shraddha seems to nail her character brilliantly. Kapoor is seen sporting a jersey with a badminton racket in hand. Expressions on her face indicate as if she has just won a high-profile tournament.
Before starting shooting for Saina, Shraddha had undergone an extensive training regimen to get into the skin of her character. Talking about the same, she had said in an earlier interview that it’s a challenging role for an actor as it requires an immense amount of transformation. “Saina is the country’s sweetheart, a champion and a youth icon. It’s a challenging role for an actor as it requires an immense amount of transformation.”
If we talk about Shraddha Kapoor’s other upcoming projects, the talented actress is shooting for a multilingual film called Saaho. The mega-budgeted movie stars sensational superstar Prabhas as the male lead. To be made in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi, Saaho is being directed by Sujeeth and is set to hit screens next year. Besides Saaho, Shraddha might also be seen in Nitesh Tiwari’s next directorial venture which stars Sushant Singh Rajput in the lead role.
