The trend of biopics is still continuing in India and all the industries in the country are coming up with the stories of eminent and unsung personalities. Currently, a biopic is being made on the star shuttler and Olympic medallist Saina Nehwal. Young stalwart Parineeti Chopra is reprising the role of Saina in this film. Popular writer and director Amol Gupte is helming the project.
Parineeti is preparing a lot to get into the shoes of Saina. The actress even visited Saina’s home in Hyderabad recently and spent a few days her to understand the shuttler’s lifestyle. Apparently, Saina’s mother Usha Nehwal was helpful to Parineeti in telling her daughter’s lesser-known habits and interests.
Parineeti is also going a physical makeover for the film. The actress already lost a lot of weight to look like a badminton player. She will also get two moles on her face, which are the beauty marks of Saina. We hear that Parineeti will cut her hair short for the younger portions of Saina’s life. Parineeti also borrowed Saina’s clothes for getting everything right!
It seems that Saina is quite impressed with the way Parineeti is working for her biopic. Popular producer Bhushan Kumar is bankrolling this project. It will go on floors early next year.
