Is Saina Nehwal biopic delayed because of Shraddha Kapoor?
We all know that Shraddha Kapoor will be seen playing the role of Saina Nehwal in the badminton champion’s biopic. Shraddha has been preparing for her part since the past few months. However, according to a report in Midday, the shooting of the film has been delayed as the actress has not yet perfected her game.
A source said, “Despite regular sessions, it has been a tough ride for Shraddha. With the amount of prep left for Shraddha, the project will start rolling only by the first quarter of next year.” (Also Read: Shraddha Kapoor suffers a foot injury, courtesy Saina Nehwal’s biopic)
While practicing the actress has also injured herself to which the source adds, “The sprain will require at least a week to heal.” When director Amole Gupte was contacted to ask about the delay, he said, “I’ve been quite unwell since the past one week.” Producer Bhushan Kumar was unavailable for comment, but a source from the production house stated, “There is no official deadline on the film. Amole wants to make a good movie and that’s our priority. Even if there’s a slight delay, we have their back.”
Shraddha was last seen on the big screen in ‘Haseena Parkar’ which was a biopic on Dawood Ibrahim’s sister. The film bombed at the box office but Shraddha received mixed reviews for her performance.
