Deepika to play ace shuttler Saina Nehwal on screen – Kollywood Latest News





The latest buzz in B-Town these days is that Deepika Padukone is all set to play India’s ace shuttler Saina Nehwal in an official biopic on the life of Olympic Bronze medal winner. Direcror Mahesh Bhatt is planning a biopic on Saina, which is reportedly at a nascent stage. According to sources, Bhatt is keen to have Deepika Padukone on board for the project.

According to reports, the badminton player wants Deepika to play her character on the big screen as she feels Dippy would do justice to her role. At a press meet, Saina said “I think only Deepika Padukone can do justice to my on-screen image. Considering Deepika’s popularity, she would be perfect for the role”.

“She knows badminton quite well. Apart from the strokes and bends, she is aware of all the actions in the game. And since it will be a film based on a sportsperson’s life, it wouldn’t be right to go with flaws in strokes and patterns. I have seen her play, and she is really good at it,” Saina added.

Deepika Padukone is the daughter of Badminton player Prakash Padukone and has played the sport at national level before she turned to modelling.
