The film went on floors last year and Parineeti underwent intensive training to play the role of the badminton ace.
The actress stayed at the Ramsheth Thakur International Sports Complex in Navi Mumbai for nearly 15 days to polish her badminton skills.
Parineeti had also said that she won’t be using any body double for the tough shots in the film.
“This project is absolutely perfect for me. Amole (Gupte, director) sir and his team are ensuring I have everything that I need. A great physio team and world-class players have been roped in to train and condition me. Everything from how Saina plays, who she has played with and against, every match she has been in has been documented. It’s important to imbibe all that information and present it on screen. I’m happy, but also very nervous,” said Parineeti, while talking about the film.
Sania Nehwal’s biopic is being helmed by Amole Gupte and bankrolled by Bhushan Kumar.
