Shraddha Kapoor is all set for the release of her next, Haseena Parkar which is a biopic of Dawood Ibrahim’s sisters life. After this film, she also has Chanda Mama Door Ke with Sushant Singh Rajput.
But that’s not all. Shraddha is also a part of the Saina Nehwal biopic where she will be playing the badminton player herself. Director Amole Gupte spoke about the same and said, “Shraddha resembles Saina. In fact, she was always my first choice. I have had conversations with Saina too. It’s not that this idea popped up recently. I’ve been sitting on this script for two years.”
He further revealed, “Shraddha is undergoing training from ace badminton player Jitesh Padukone to get into her character. She’s so committed to it.”
Shraddha also spoke about the excitement in her to play this real life character. She said, “Most girls would have played badminton at some point in their lives in school. I feel so lucky to be playing Saina, who is not just among the world’s top badminton players, but also a youth icon. I can’t wait to start prepping for my role.”
She added, “I’m sure it’s going to be my most difficult film yet as Saina has spent her whole life playing badminton and in the next few months, I have to get close to the standards she’s set.”
Looks like after films like Half Girlfriend, Ok Jaanu and Rock On 2, Shraddha’s kitty is finally full of substantial films!
