Parineeti Chopra’s Saina Nehwal biopic will go floors on October 11. The film is directed by Amole Gupte and produced by Bhushan Kumar. The shoot will kick off at the International Institute of Sports Management in Mumbai.
“I have netted a really good talent who has the acting prowess to play Saina,” Amole said. “In the first scene, Parineeti as Saina will be answering questions from the fraternity, including journalists, students and sports management people.”
Parineeti shared her excitement for the film. “I think it will be a life-changing experience,” the actor said. “I’ve put all my energies prepping for this role, something I’ve never done for the 10-12 films that I’ve worked in. In the process, I have finally discovered the person I am.”
The biopic will be shot over the next four months. The makers are planning to release the film around summer next year, in time for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
