Shraddha Kapoor says she can relate to Saina’s journey since she had similar experiences in a different field. The Stree actress shared the first look as Saina Nehwal from Saina Nehwal’s biopic on Saturday.
Shraddha, who has been practicing for months including many 6 am training sessions while juggling other commitments in a statement, said, “I have already clocked 40 classes of badminton in preparation for this biopic. It’s a really tough sport, but I am enjoying myself. To get an insight into the life of a sportsperson is fascinating.”
“Saina’s journey itself is so interesting — right from her misses to her injuries and victories. I can relate to her journey in a big way, because I have gone through similar experiences in a different field. Despite everything, she has not let her focus shift and that’s what’s truly inspiring.”
