Shraddha playing Saina’s role!
Biopics have always been sensational on Indian screen. Particularly, sport-biopic films like MS Dhoni-The Untold Story, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, Dangal, Mary Kom were humongous at the box-office. Even, a biopic on Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar is about to release in few weeks, while Tollywood filmmaker Praveen Sattaru is working on Pullela Gopichand’s life story.
And the latest one to join that league is badminton star player Saina Nehwal, whose story is getting an onscreen adaption soon. Winner of bronze medal at 2012 London Olympics, Saina is one of the star players from Hyderabad – even before PV Sindhu.
So, who’s playing Saina’s role? – According to Bollywood film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh, Shraddha Kapoor is being considered for the lead role. The actress is now part of Haseena, a biopic on Dawood Ibrahim’s sister.
To be directed by Amole Gupta, the film titled ‘Saina’ will be bank-rolled by Bhushan Kumar of T-Series.
