Saina Movie Story

Saina Movie is an upcoming Bollywood biographical sports movie that revolves around the life of badminton player, Saina Nehwal and directed by Amole Gupte and Produced by T-Series and Front Foot Pictures. Initially set for cinema opening in September 2020, the film was postponed due to COVID-19 pandemic in India. It is now scheduled to have a theatrical release on 26 March 2021.

Earlier Shraddha Kapoor was casted to play the title role of Saina Nehwal. In fact,  she has even started filming in September 2018 after training, but later she opted out of the film due to scheduling conflicts. Later, Bhushan Kumar confirmed that Parineeti Chopra is going to play Nehwal.

In a statement they said, “Due to circumstances beyond her control, the actress kept giving other films priority over the national badminton champion’s biopic, so the makers have decided to go ahead with Chopra.”. Chopra is training herself in playing badminton and practicing the stances of Nehwal from mid-June. As many as 12 courts were recreated to represent international venues where Sania Nehwal has played. In June, Manav Kaul was finalized to play the role of Pullela Gopichand who is Nehwal’s coach.

The film is directed by Amole Gupte and was shot in 2019. It was originally supposed to release in the summer of last year but got delayed due to the ongoing pandemic. Amole Gupte who has earlier directed , the most heart touching and sensitive movies named Stanley Ka Dabba and Taare Zameen par, is now trying to create his magic in this movie Saina.

Parineeti Chopra-starrer Saina will release on March 26, revealed a teaser video. Parineeti will play badminton player Saina Nehwal in the film. Sharing the teaser, Parineeti wrote: “SAINA! 26th March in cinemas.” The teaser shows the grooming of Saina from a young enthusiast to a professional. Saina’s fierce determination comes through.

“Saamne koi bhi ho, main toh bas maar dungi (I don’t care who my opponent is, I will simply go for the kill),” she says. We get a brief glimpse of Parineeti as Saina at the end of the 30-second teaser. She says generally females in India are being married off at 18 and nothing left for them henceforth except to take care of the household stuff.

She, however, adds, “Lekin mere saath aisa nahi hua, karchi-tawe ke badle mein pakdi maine talwar (But this didn’t happen with me, I picked the sword in place of a pan and ladle). Following visuals show how her parents and coach encouraged her and worked hard with her to make her the first Indian badminton player to win an Olympic medal, five medals in Commonwealth Games and become the only Indian woman badminton player to become world No. 1.

Sharing one picture from one of her sessions at the Thane Badminton Academy, Parineeti had written: “Me. All day everyday nowadays.” Sharing another video from the Khar Gymkhana, she wrote: “Getting ready to do such a long rally in ONE TAKE #SainaNehwalBiopic #Goals #OneDayAtATime.”
