Shraddha Kapoor is one of those actresses in Bollywood who has come a long way in the industry. She has been appearing back to back in movies this year. After the success of ‘Stree’, and the recently-released ‘Batti Gul Meter Chalu‘, the 31-year-old actress has started shooting for the upcoming biopic on Saina Nehwal.

With great work comes huge responsibility and Shraddha now has the responsibility to pull off the character of the ace badminton player Saina without any flaws. Since months, the ‘Stree’ actress has been prepping for the role and she even visited Saina’s house to get perfectly into the skin of the Olympic bronze medalist.

In a recent interview to Mumbai Mirror, Shraddha was all in praise for Saina. She said, “Saina is the country’s sweetheart, a champion and a youth icon. It’s a challenging role for an actor as it requires an immense amount of transformation.”

Shraddha is super excited for the movie as she is going to start her first day of the shoot after months of training. She hopes that Saina Nehwal’s family visits the sets to support her. “I hope they are. It will be nice to have them there, along with their support,” added Shraddha.

Saina Nehwal has seen many ups and downs in her career and so has the ‘Aashique 2’ actress. Before the shoot, Shraddha said that she can relate her journey to Saina. “Well, I can relate to her journey. She has bounced back so many times and her journey has been a real rollercoaster,” said the actress.

Apart from the biopic, Shraddha will also star in Hindi-Telugu bilingual, ‘Saaho’ opposite Prabhas. Reportedly, she will be seen doing high octane action scenes in the movie. We are eagerly looking forward to both the movies. What about you?
