Shradha Kapoor Pushes Nehwal Bio-Pic Ahead To Do Batti Gul

Shraddha Kapoor

Wait. It’s  not  over yet. Fans  of  badminton can heave a sigh of relief. The  Saina Nehwalbio-pic which  was rumoured to be  shelved  is actually on hold.

Shradha Kapoor who  plays Saina Nehwal  decided to squeeze in  another project directorShree Narayan Singh’s Batti Gul Meter  Chalu,before starting the Nehwal bio-pic.

Says a source  close  to the development, “When producer Prernaa Arora offered ShradhaBatti Gul Meter Chalu she immediately fell in love with her character and  the  film. But the dates were clashing with the Nehwal bio-pic. A solution was worked out between producersPrernaa Arora of Batti Gul… and  producer Bhushan  Kumar  who’s co-producing both BattiGul … the Saina Nehwal  bio-pic. Bhushan agreed  to  postpone his  film by a few months to accommodate Prernaa’s  film into Shrdadha’s  schedule.”

Shradha will now start Batti Gul Meter Down in April and begin shooting for the Nehwalbio-pic  from September  1 with director  Amole Gupte. In the meanwhile Shradha is excited about getting to play a smalltown girl opposite Shahid Kapoor in  Batti Gul Meter Down. The last time Shradh came together with Shahid, she was disastrous  in  Vishal Bhardwaj’sHaidar.

 Not  her fault entirely, since the  director made her speak what he thought was an authentic Kashmiri language. Ecah time she  opened her mouth audiences  burst out laughing.

Batti Gul Meter Down  is  Shradha’s chance  to redeem her screen partnership with ShahidKapoor.

Apparently she loved her role so much that she not only agreed to accommodate  the  dates required by postponing the Nehwal bio-pic, she also agreed to take  a price cut for the chance  to work with the director  of  Toilet: Ek Prem Katha.
