It seems the BIOPIC BUG is unlikely to vanish or vaporize anytime soon. After showcasing the roller-coaster journeys of ace athletes like Paan Singh Tomar, Milkha Singh and MS Dhoni, we have another star player whose life will be adapted into a feature film. The star is none other than the Badminton layer, Saina Nehwal.

Rumors surfaced a few months ago that Deepika Padukone would portray her on the celluloid, but this actor made an official announcement on her Twitter account. She’s the Aashiqui girl and Arjun Kapoor’s Half Girlfriend, guessed it, right? Yes, its Shraddha Kapoor who shall be stepping into the shoes of the ace player and replicating her tireless and inspirational journey. Directed by Amol Gupte, we are sure it’ll be yet another intriguing and invigorating film as we all can rely on Gupte for making compelling cinema, like the immensely successful Taare Zameen Par (2007) or the unfairly underrated Stanley Ka Dabba (2011) and Hawa Hawai (2014).

Meanwhile, here’s what Kapoor tweeted this morning-

Bring the Biopic soon Saina and Shraddha.
