Saina Nehwal reacts to Shraddha Kapoor taking long time for her ‘Biopic’

In the film industry, the makers are also giving preference to making biopics. They have also produced some sensational hits. Now it seems that biopics are the most sought-after movies nowadays.

From releasing Mary Kom to a recent Sanju, directors are hunting for some real-life stories in a bid to inspire the audience. The formula is working quite well. It is well-known that filmmaker Amol Gupte had earlier announced a biopic on badminton player Saina Nehwal.


It was in April 2017 that Bollywood actress Shraddha Kapoor was assigned to play Saina Nehwal in her biopic, but the actress is yet to start shooting for the movie and it’s taking more time.

It’s been a year that Shraddha has been getting into the groove in badminton, but if the latest reports are to be believed, Saina is still not convinced with Shraddha as she still has a lot of catching up to do to ace the sport. As per the report in a leading daily, Saina wants Shraddha to get into the scheme of things really well before the film hits the screens.

“It’s been a year and apparently, Shraddha hasn’t been able to ace the game. The Padma Bhushan recipient has been in constant touch with the team. She has allegedly told them that she will give a go ahead only when Shraddha is completely ready,” a source told the leading daily.

Since it’s taking time, the biopic has been pushed by a year. For the time being, Shraddha is a bit busy with other projects. “Shraddha has been shooting back to back. She shot for Stree for around 20-22 days. Then, she had two big schedules for Batti Gul Meter Chalu. She’s now expected to begin work on Nitesh Tiwary’s next opposite Sushant Singh Rajput. So, there’s hardly any time for her to practice badminton,” added the source.
