Shraddha is convincing as Saina Nehwal in first look of badminton ace's biopic

After garnering immense appreciation for her latest quirky drama Stree, Shraddha Kapoor is all set to treat her fans with the biopic on Indian badminton player, Saina Nehwal.

The actress has released her first look as Saina. In the picture, that seems to be a still from the film, the Aashiqui 2 actor can be seen donning the sportswear, holding a racket and pumping her fists after winning.

Sharing her experience about preparing for her role in the film, the 31-year-old said that she practised for months, which also included many 6 am training sessions.

"I have already clocked 40 classes of badminton in preparation for this biopic. It's a really tough sport, but I am enjoying myself," she said.

Talking about recreating the Indian shuttler's journey, the actor said, "To get an insight into the life of a sportsperson is fascinating. Saina's journey itself is so interesting, right from her misses to her injuries and victories."

Shraddha added that she can relate to Saina's journey in a lot of ways. "I can relate to her journey in a big way because I have gone through similar experiences in a different field. Despite everything, she has not let her focus shift and that's what's truly inspiring,” the actor added.
