It was announced last year that Shraddha Kapoor was roped in to play Saina Nehwal in her biopic, which will be directed by Amole Gupte. The badminton player, who is an Arjuna awardee, wanted Shraddha to ace her badminton skills before shooting the film. Since Shraddha was busy shooting for her upcoming movie Stree, which had a 20-22 days schedule, the actress could not give time to ace the sport. This makes us wonder if it has affected the relationship between the athlete and the actress.
A leading daily quoted a close source saying, “It’s been a year and apparently, Shraddha hasn’t been able to ace the game. The Padma Bhushan recipient has been in constant touch with the team. She has allegedly told them that she will give a go ahead only when Shraddha is completely ready.”
Apart from Stree, which is scheduled to release on 31st August this year, Shraddha has two big films scheduled- Batti Gul Meter Chalu and Saaho. The actress is also expected to begin work on Nitesh Tiwary’s next opposite Sushant Singh Rajput.
