Saina shares Parineeti's look from her biopic
Badminton player Saina Nehwal has shared a new look from her biopic, calling the lead actor Parineeti Chopra her 'lookalike'. In the photo, Parineeti looks intent on the match as she gets ready to serve. This is the second photo of Parineeti as the ace shuttler that has emerged.
"My lookalike @ParineetiChopra #sainamovie," Saina wrote on Twitter. The film started shooting last year after Parineeti underwent intensive training to play the badminton player. Shraddha Kapoor was earlier supposed to play Saina but she had later bowed out of the film.
When the film started shooting last year, Saina had shared yet another look of Parineeti from the film, "Looking forward to this journey together! My best wishes to the team #SainaNehwalBiopic #Saina @parineetichopra #AmoleGupte @bhushankumar #DeepaBhatia @sujay.jairaj @tseries.official @tseriesfilms." Parineeti thanked her and wrote, "Thankyouu my CHAMPION!!!! I am soo nervoussss @nehwalsaina."
Parineeti had earlier spoken about the project, "This project is absolutely perfect for me. Amole Gupte sir and his team are ensuring I have everything that I need. A great physio team and world-class players have been roped in to train and condition me. Everything from how Saina plays, who she
has played with and against, has been in has been documented. It's important to imbibe all that information and present it on screen." Parineeti had said she will not use a body double to film tough shots.
