2019 has been a year of several interesting biopics. Not only political biopics like 'PM Narendra Modi' and 'Thackeray' but several sports films including Ranveer Singh's '83' and the Saina Nehwal biopic also counts among one of the most-anticipated films of the year. The film narrating the life story of the Indian shuttler Saina Nehwal stars Parineeti Chopra in the lead and looks like the actress is training hard to ace the game.
Recently, the Bollywood diva shared a couple of pictures from her training sessions on Instagram. While in the first picture she can be seen all set to hit the shuttlecock, in the second picture she can be seen lying on the floor all drained out.
Hailing Saina Nehwal's stamina in the post, Parineeti captioned the post saying, "Before ........ and After! 🤭🏸 @nehwalsaina HOW DO YOU DO THIS!😱😱#SainaNehwalBiopic #Training#ShootsStartsInOctober"

Meanwhile, a few days back, the actress shared an update about the forthcoming film on Twitter and revealed that she hasn't started shooting for the film yet and she is currently learning how to play badminton. The Bollywood diva further stated that the much-anticipated venture is expected to go on floors in October, this year.
The Saina Nehwal biopic will be helmed by 'Taare Zameen Par' director Amole Gupte and will be produced by Bhushan Kumar under the banner of T-series. The makers began filming the biopic on September 22.
Previously, actress Shraddha Kapoor was roped to play the lead role in the biopic. She had even started shooting for the film in September, last year. However, the filming was halted soon after she was diagnosed with dengue. Later, the actor quit the project due to scheduling conflicts after two years of prep.
The first look of the film was revealed last year in which Shraddha was seen as Saina and aced the look of the renowned player. She had been training with the shuttler herself.
The biopic is expected to release in 2020.
Meanwhile, Parineeti will be next seen in 'Bhuj: The Pride Of India', 'Jabariya Jodi', 'Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar' and the Hindi remake of 'The Girl On The Train'.
