On the one hand, Shraddha Kapoor has been confirmed as the female lead in Shree Narayan Singh’s forthcoming film, Batti Gul Meter Chalu; but on the other hand, reports of her much talked about film Saina being shelved are doing the rounds.
As the name suggests itself, Saina is a biopic based on the life of ace badminton player Saina Nehwal. Shraddha was supposed to play Saina in the biopic. However, according to a report published in an Indian daily, the movie has been shelved for now.
According to the report, the sports biopic has been put on hold because Shraddha was having difficulty in picking up the sport of badminton despite being trained by Saina herself. That was reportedly delaying the film. However, it is not known if this is the reason for the delay.
The project was to be helmed by Amole Gupte.
