Saina Teaser: Parineeti Chopra serves inspiration to slam her opponent as ace badminton player Saina Nehwal
Parineeti Chopra is all set to play the role of the only Indian woman badminton player to become world No. 1 - Saina Nehwal - in her biopic titled Saina. After creating a buzz with her looks, posters and promo, now Parineeti has hit it out of the 'court' with the teaser of Saina that the makers released this afternoon.
Saina's teaser begins with Parineeti talking about how half of the Indian population comprises females who are married off at the age of 18 with nothing left to their life story. She, however, adds, "Lekin mere saath aisa nahi hua, karchi-tawe ke badle mein pakdi maine talwar (But this didn't happen with me, I picked the sword in place of a pan and ladle). Following visuals show how her parents and coach encouraged her and worked hard with her to make her the first Indian badminton player to win an Olympic medal, five medals in Commonwealth Games and become the only Indian woman badminton player to become world No. 1.
Talking as Saina, Parineeti also says that she has never been bothered by who her opponent was because her game has always been simple --to beat him/her. There are also glimpses of Manav Kaur, who plays her coach Pullela Gopichand.
Saina is directed by Amole Gupte and is being produced by T-series. The film is all set to hit the screens on March 26.
