A lot of biopics are in the making these days, and one of them is ace badminton player Saina Nehwal’s biopic which had gone on floors in September 2018, with Shraddha Kapoor playing the lead role as the badminton player. However, a few days after the shoot began, the actress was diagnosed with dengue and advised by the doctors to rest and recuperate. According to reports, Shraddha Kapoor was supposed to resume the shoot from April 2019, but according to the recent reports, the actress has totally opted out of Amole Gupte’s directorial movie.
As a replacement, the shoot will begin with by Parineeti Chopra in the lead role. According to sources, Shraddha Kapoor opted out of this biopic due to her very busy and packed schedule. Amidst shooting for include Chhichhore, Street Dancer 3D, Saaho and Baaghi 3, the actress already has a lot on her plate and does not have the time to shoot another movie.
Due to these clash in dates and timing, the decision for this was made mutually by the movie director and by Shraddha herself. About Parineeti Chopra’s entry in this biopic of Saina Nehwal, the producer of the movie Bhushan Kumar told the press, “We want to wrap up Saina by this year-end for an early 2020 release, so going ahead with the project is a decision taken by mutual consent. We are glad Parineeti has come on board for the film. Saina has made every Indian proud and we can’t wait to take her story to the world in the year of the Olympics.”
The B-Town is now waiting to see if Parineeti does justice to the role and really pulls of the character of this ace badminton player on the silver screen. Apart from this biopic, the upcoming movies of Parineeti include “Jabariya Jodi” with Sidharth Malhotra and “Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar” with Arjun Kapoor.
