Saina trailer out; Parineeti Chopra makes an impact already!
India’s ace badminton player Saina Nehwal is getting a biopic made in Bollywood. Titled ‘Saina’, the film has Parineeti Chopra in the lead role. Today, on the occasion of International Women’s Day, the makers have released the film’s trailer online. The 2-minute long trailer has glimpses of Saina’s journey from an ordinary family in Haryana to become the World’s No.1 badminton player.
Saina Nehwal is the only Indian female badminton player to be ranked as World No 1. In 2012, She became the first Indian badminton player to an Olympic medal by clinching bronze. She has also bagged two medals each at the World Championships and Asian Games and has won a total of 5 medals at the Commonwealth Games including 3 gold medals.
‘Saina’, the film, is written and directed by Amol Gupte of ‘Taare Zameen Par’ fame. The biopic was originally planned with Shraddha Kapoor but she later opted out due to her schedule clashes. Parineeti later replaced and worked rigorously to play the shuttler’s character. From the glimpses we get to see in the trailer, Parineeti does make an impact.
The film produced by T-Series Films is scheduled to hit screens on March 26, 2021.
