#SainaNehwalBiopic: How do you do this, Parineeti asks Saina
Parineeti Chopra is indeed training hard for ace shuttler Saina Nehwal's biopic. The 30-year-old actress recently shared two pictures of herself practising on the court, trying to learn the nuances of badminton. And guess what, it is not just her fans who are excited to see her play Saina on the screen; the player herself looks forward to play a game with Parineeti.
Parineeti shared two pictures that showed her rigorous training
In the two pictures, one has Parineeti, with a badminton racket in hand, looking upwards probably to hit a shuttlecock. The second photo has her crouching and taking a nap on the floor after a tiring session. The actress captioned the photos as, "Before ........ and After! @nehwalsaina HOW DO YOU DO THIS! #SainaNehwalBiopic #Training#ShootsStartsInOctober." She also informed about the shooting schedule.

Meanwhile, Saina looks forward to have one-on-one with Parineeti
It looks like Parineeti's preparations have impressed Saina too, who wants to play a match with the former. She commented, "Looking forward to play with u @parineetichopra ...u r really working hard for the #sainanehwalbiopic." Well, that praise was surely a bit scary for Parineeti.
Looking forward to play with you, Saina to Parineeti
"I am still learning how to play Badminton"
Meanwhile, the Ishaqzaade actress dropped an update about the shooting schedule and how she is still learning the game. "Hi everyone, we have NOT started the shoot of #Saina yet. I am still learning how to play Badminton! We will start in October once I get better at it!! 4 MONTHS TO GO!#Saina @TSeries," she said in a social media post.
Earlier, Shraddha Kapoor was roped in for playing Saina
But did you know Shraddha Kapoor, who is currently busy with Remo D'Souza's Street Dancer 3D, opposite Varun Dhawan, was originally roped in to play Saina? She was also undergoing training for months, but the actress reportedly opted out of the movie after she was diagnosed with dengue. Though she was expected to resume shooting in April, director Amole Gupte opted for Parineeti instead.
