Finally, the first look of the Saina Nehwal biopic released on Saturday after much delay. The film is directed by Amol Gupte, and Shraddha Kapoor will play the role of badminton star Saina Nehwal. The actress took her Instagram to share the first look of the film.

Sharing the picture, Shraddha wrote: “Saina.” We have to admit that the actor looks almost similar to the badminton player, sporting a red, white and blue t-shirt and dark blue skirt. Her hair is held back by a band and she holds a racquet in her hand with an expression both of exhilaration and aggression.

According to the reports she had said: “I fell in love with the game when I started playing it. But it is very challenging. On the days when I practice badminton, my days are completely different and I am a different person when I don’t play. I usually start playing it from 6 am in the morning every day for two hours or so. We aim to practice every day but if my arms or legs get too sore then I don’t do the class. I feel tempted to play that time as well but I have been advised not to play as I would get prone to injuries.”

She had further confessed how she often texts Saina for tips and advice and how the latter is prompt with her replies. “She is so prompt and helpful always. I shared a video of me practising badminton and she gave me her feedback. She is such an inspirational person.”

Earlier in an event, Shraddha had said: “We are making lots of preparations for this film and we are doing it for a long time.”

Shraddha recently met Saina’s parents. She explained how they treated her like their daughter. “Saina’s parents gave lots of love to me and they treated me like a family when I visited their home, so, it felt really nice to see them here.”

Saina had earlier said to media, “Whenever she will start it (shooting) I will definitely watch out some of her sessions to see how it is going. When an actor comes out with a movie on an athlete, it will be different and challenging.”

Saina Nehwal’s 2012 Olympic bronze medal is one of the most defining moments in Indian sporting history. She won the badminton singles Commonwealth Gold for India in 2010, and then again in 2018, helped clinch the team gold in badminton for India.
