We start Saina Nehwal biopic next month: Shraddha Kapoor

While the film’s shoot will start by September-end, the source adds that scenes that require Shraddha to play the sport will be filmed from December or early next year

Mumbai: When bets were placed on Deepika Padukone to portray the badminton player’s life on the reel, makers took everyone by surprise by casting Shraddha. And thus began the training.

We have learnt that Saina Nehwal biopic will go on floors by the end of next month. Shraddha Kapoor, who is essaying the badminton champion, has started prepping for the role.

Shraddha, who has been practising badminton for many months now, says that she still has a long way to go. And that’s the reason the makers won’t shoot for the badminton chunks before early next year.

“It’s a difficult sport, very challenging, but I’m enjoying myself. I’ve already taken 3840 classes, but there’s still a long way to go which is why even though we start filming next month, we will shoot the badminton scenes only early next year.”

A source says that the actress has changed her routine completely. On days that she is not promoting Stree and  or shooting for Saaho, Shraddha starts her day at 5 AM. And, once her promotions get over, this will be her daily routine.

“The plan charted out is such that she trains for badminton on alternate days for one-and-a-half hours, works out in the gym on the other days for the same duration followed by a session of physiotherapy so that her muscles ’t jam and there is no injury. Not just physical training but there will be changes in her diet too. She will be having a high protein diet and will be off sweets as she has to live an athlete’s life for a certain period,” says a source.

While the film’s shoot will start by September-end, the source adds that scenes that require Shraddha to play the sport will be filmed from December or early next year.

Saina Nehwal created history on Monday by bagging the first individual medal for India in 36 years in women’s badminton at the ongoing Asian Games, taking home a bronze, even as fellow shuttler PV Sindhu moves into the finals, assuring herself of at least a silver.
