Shraddha Kapoor practices Badminton at 6 am for Saina biopic

Bollywood actress Shraddha Kapoor believes that the biopic on the Badminton champion Saina Nehwal is the most challenging film for her.

“I feel her (Nehwal) career is going great guns, especially the way she has bounced back after her injury, it is tremendous and so inspiring. It is a huge responsibility on all of us to make sure that we do a thorough job of presenting her on the big screen. It is a daunting and challenging job,” said Shraddha.

As the actress is prepping up for the film, she says that she enjoys playing Badminton.

“I fell in love with the game when I started playing it. But it is very challenging. On the days when I practice Badminton, my days are completely different and I am a different person when I don’t play. I usually start playing it from 6 am in morning every day for two hours or so. We aim to practice every day but if my arms or legs get too sore then I don’t do the class. I feel tempted to play that time as well but I have been advised not to play as I would get prone to injuries,” said the 30 year old actor.

On taking suggestions from the ace Badminton player with regards to the game, Shraddha said, “She is so prompt and helpful always. I shared a video of me practicing badminton and she gave me her feedback. She is such an inspirational person.”

Shraddha further speaks about whether Saina would play a cameo in the biopic.

“It is all work in progress so you never know,” said Shraddha.

Talking about Amol Gupte who is the director of the film, Shraddha said, “He (Gupte) is true to what he does. He is filled with love, affection and encouragement. I feel like a child with him as he showers me with so much affection.”
