Bollywood actress Shraddha Kapoor is currently riding high on the success of her last film Stree, which went on to mint over Rs 100 crore at the box office. Shraddha plays a mysterious character in the horror comedy, co-starring Rajkumar Rao. Now, the actress is all set to portray Saina Nehwal on the big screen.
The biopic, titled Saina, will be directed by Amol Gupte, who has helmed movies such as Stanley Ka Dabba and Hawa Hawaai. The film went on floors last week.  
The 31-year-old actor says she has been practising for the role for many months now and during the process she came to realise how hard it was for Saina to achieve her success. "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," Shraddha said in a statement. 
"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," she added. The makers released the first look from the film that shows Shraddha as the spitting image of Saina.
