 The reports of Saina Nehwal’s biopic were doing the rounds for a long time now. There were speculations that Deepika Padukone might play Saina in the film. In fact Saina too had expressed her desire to see Deepika playing her character on screen. Deepika is well versed with the game, because of her badminton champion dad, Prakash Padukone.

 Finally it is Shraddha who has been finalised to play lead in biopic. The film is slated to go on floor later this year.
