Even though, Salman Khan starrer ‘Race 3’ failed to do wonders at the box-office, it did manage to revive careers of a number of actors including Bobby Deol, Daisy Shah and Saqib Saleem.

Saqib proved his worth in this otherwise dull film, and is now getting some interesting offers coming his way. And as per a latest report in Deccan Chronicle, the actor has now been approached to play a huge part in Saina Nehwal biopic starring Shraddha Kapoor.

A source close to the film reveals to the daily, “Saqib is on good terms with director Amole Gupte, whom he worked with in ‘Hawaa Hawaai’. He has been approached to play Shraddha’s love interest in the film.”

The actor has also apparently loved the character and will soon be signing the dotted lines.

Meanwhile, Shraddha has been undergoing rigorous training to get into the character of Saina, under the senior coach of the Prakash Padukone Academy. She was also seen spending time with the badminton player and had shared some pictures of them bonding over food, on social media.

Saina has won a bronze medal at the ongoing Asian Games and created history in women’s badminton, after winning the first individual medal in 36 years, for India.

The film produced by Bhushan Kumar.
