New Delhi: After garnering immense appreciation for her latest quirky drama ‘Stree’, Shraddha Kapoor is all set to treat her fans with Bhushan Kumar’s biopic on Indian badminton player Saina Nehwal. T- Series has released the first look of Shraddha as Saina. In the picture, that seems to be a still from the film, the ‘Aashiqui 2’ actor can be seen donning the sportswear, holding a racket and channelling all her energy in the game.
Sharing her experience about preparing for her role in the film, the 31-year-old said that she practised for months, which also included many 6 am training sessions. “I have already clocked 40 classes of badminton in preparation for this biopic. It’s a really tough sport, but I am enjoying myself,” she said.
Talking about recreating the Indian shuttler’s journey, the ‘Batti Gul Meter Chalu’ actor said, “To get an insight into the life of a sportsperson is fascinating. Saina’s journey itself is so interesting- right from her misses to her injuries and victories. “Shraddha added that she can relate to Saina’s journey in a lot of ways”.
I can relate to her journey in a big way because I have gone through similar experiences in a different field. Despite everything, she has not let her focus shift and that’s what’s truly inspiring, the actor added.
