Interestingly, Parineeti was not the first choice for this biopic.

Earlier, Shraddha Kapoor was roped in to play the lead. However, she was soon replaced by Parineeti, as she couldn't match the pace of her character.

"Even after being trained for more than a year, this actress failed to get the nuances of the character right," a source was quoted saying.

After Parineeti was inducted in the film, its producer Bhushan Kumar said, "We are glad Parineeti has come on board for the film. Saina has made every Indian proud and we can't wait to take her story to the world in the year of the Olympics."
