Bollywood actress Parineeti Chopra will star in the biopic of badminton player Saina Nehwal. Parineeti’s look was kept under wraps ever since she started shooting for the film. But a fan club has now shared the actress’s look as Saina Nehwal in the film.
Saina also retweeted Parineeti’s look in the film and wrote, “My lookalike @ParineetiChopra #sainamovie.” In the picture, Parineeti is sporting short hair and giving a determined look.

The shooting of the film began in 2019. The biopic will be directed by Amole Gupte, who had also helmed the film Stanley Ka Dabba and Hawaa Hawaai. In an earlier interview, Parineeti said that doing justice to Nehwal and the film is an utmost priority for her.
“This project is absolutely perfect for me. Amole (Gupte, director) sir and his team are ensuring I have everything that I need. A great physio team and world-class players have been roped in to train and condition me. Everything how Saina plays, who she has played with and against, every match she has been in has been documented. It’s important to imbibe all that information and present it on screen. I’m happy, but also very nervous,” she had said.
