Not Prabhas’ Saaho, Shraddha Kapoor to kickstart shooting for Saina Nehwal biopic first? – Directed by Amole Gupte, the biopic will be shot in Hyderabad, Mumbai and a few more locations. The movie will hit the screens next year.
Though Prabhas has already begun shooting for Saaho in Hyderabad, his leading lady Shraddha Kapoor is not going to be joining him any time soon. Why? Well, Shraddha is currently busy prepping for her next Bollywood film, the Saina Nehwal biopic. We snapped her outside a badminton court in Mumbai. A couple of months back she had posted a pic on social media accounts where she mentioned how she has already started working on the film. And now with these recent pictures, it seems that her preparation is going on in full swing.
For those who don’t know, Deepika Padukone was previously rumoured to be in talks for the role, but eventually Shraddha bagged the lead. The movie still has a Deepika connect. You see, Shraddha is training under a coach from Deepika’s father Prakash Padukone’s academy, as per a report by Mumbai Mirror that had come out recently. “Shraddha will begin training in badminton under the guidance of a senior coach from Prakash Padukone’s academy. She will be training at a world-class badminton facility in suburban Mumbai and will practice daily till it’s time to kick off the shoot, which is in a few months,” a source was quoted by the daily.
Shraddha has expressed that this one is going to be her most difficult film. “Saina has spent her whole life playing badminton and in the next few months, I have to get close to the standards she’s set” she said.
