XtraTime Web Desk: Biopics on sportspersons are not new in Bollywood. The first look of the biopic on Indian shuttler Saina Nehwal was released by Bollywood actress Shraddha Kapoor.
In the photo, Shraddha seems to be in a state of high energy as she channels the sportswoman. The actor shared the look from the Saina biopic on her Instagram handle and captioned it as “#SAINA.”

The actor has reportedly been preparing really hard to get the character just right and has been training for several months now.
“I have already clocked 40 classes of badminton in preparation for this biopic. It’s a really tough sport, but I am enjoying myself. To get an insight into the life of a sportsperson is fascinating. Saina’s journey itself is so interesting — right from her misses to her injuries and victories. I can relate to her journey in a big way because I have gone through similar experiences in a different field. Despite everything, she has not let her focus shift and that’s what’s truly inspiring,” Shraddha said in a recent statement.
Saina had earlier said that she is confident that Shraddha will give 100 per cent to the biopic. “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 had said.
