It has been over a year since filmmaker Amole Gupte announced a biopic on ace badminton player Saina Nehwal. However, the project could not hit the shooting floor for one reason or the other. But pushing all obstacles aside, Gupte is set to call the shots in September.

Shraddha Kapoor, who plays Saina Nehwal in the much-awaited biopic, is quite excited about the film. She has undergone months of preparations to get into the skin of her character. The actress will finally start shooting for the movie in September.

“It’s a difficult sport, very challenging, but I’m enjoying myself. I’ve already taken 38-40 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,” said the actress.

Talking about Kapoor’s forthcoming projects, she will shortly be seen in Dinesh Vijan’s horror-comedy movie Stree, which releases on 31st August. Stree will be followed by Shree Narayan Singh’s social drama movie Batti Gul Meter Chalu. She is also romancing Prabhas in the multilingual action entertainer Saaho.
