After giving a glance on the all the biopic of mostly all the sportsman and celebrities, now Saina is all set to have a look at her own biopic which will be played by Saina Nehwal. Farhan Akhtar as Milkha Singh, Priyanka Chopra as Mary Kom and Sushant Singh Rajput as Mahendra Singh Dhoni or the one on the Phogat sisters were some of the successful biopics, while Emraan Hashmi’s Mohammad Azharuddin act couldn’t work magic at the box office. With another biopic on legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar set to hit the screens on May 26, one more sportsperson’s journey is set to be translated on to the silver screens.
Amole Gupte, creative director of the critically acclaimed ‘Taare Zameen Par’ and director of films like ‘Stanley Ka Dabba’ and ‘Hawa Hawaai’ will be helming the project as per rumours.
Saina also seemed extremely pleased with the choice of actress. She said, “Whoa! That’s news to me. I was aware of the film, yes, but I didn’t know about the casting. It’s great if Shraddha plays me because she is a very talented actress and very hardworking. I am sure she will do justice to the role. The best part is, she is a good friend as well. So it will be easier to teach her some badminton skills (laughs!). A lot of people did tell me that we do look similar and I think that’s a huge compliment, because Shraddha is very good looking.”
Saina is so excited that she even tweeted about the biopic.
The movie will release next year. Dates have not been confirmed!!
