Saina Nehwal has a lot to be proud of. Her achievements in the field of badminton are unparalleled. Now comes a bio-pic on her life which has turned out really well. In fact many of the scenes in the film are straight out of Saina ’s life. Parineeti Chopra who plays Saina worked closely in collaboration with Saina, and the wonderful actress Meghna Malik who plays Saina’s mother Usha Rani , knows the real Usha Rani well.
The makers of Saina had hoped to see Saina Nehwal promote her bio-pic much in the same way that the real Dhoni had joined hands with Sushant Singh Rajput to promote Dhoni The Untold Story. Lamentably, this did not happen with Saina.
The real Saina Nehwal has apparently declined the offer to promote the film.
Says a source , “Director Amole Gupte got along famously with the real Saina during the film’s making. He had personally urged her to be part of the film’s promotion. Lekin Saina sirf apne mann ka karti hai(she does what she wills).She isn’t even in the country right now. So there’s no question of Saina promoting her bio-pic.”
