SHRADDHA KAPOOR AT HALF GIRLFRIEND MOVIE PROMOTION
The biopic will be directed by Amole Gupte of STANLEY KA DABBA fame. Talking about this film Shraddha was quoted saying in a leading newspaper as, “Most girls have played badminton at some point in their lives in school. I feel so lucky to be playing Saina, who's not just been the world's No. 1 badminton player, but is also a youth icon. I can't wait to start prepping for my role.'
In a series of posts Shraddha expressed her happiness for getting an opportunity to step into the shoes of Saina. Read her posts below:
Her journey to the top has been fascinating & I am honored to be given this opportunity to play her in my next film 'SAINA'.— Shraddha (@ShraddhaKapoor) April 26, 2017
The preparation for this film is going to be very, very challenging. It's probably going to be my most difficult film till date.— Shraddha (@ShraddhaKapoor) April 26, 2017
Wish me luck everyone ❤️— Shraddha (@ShraddhaKapoor) April 26, 2017
Saina Nehwal is also happy with Shraddha Kapoor being roped in to play her in the biopic. Saina was quoted saying in a leading daily as, “Whoa! That's news to me. I was aware of the film, yes, but I didn't know about the casting. It's great if Shraddha plays me because she is a very talented actress and very hardworking. I am sure she will do justice to the role. The best part is, she is a good friend as well. So it will be easier to teach her some badminton skills (laughs!). A lot of people did tell me that we do look similar and I think that's a huge compliment, because Shraddha is very good looking.'
Well Shraddha we are looking forward to watch you play Saina and we wish you all the best for this biopic.
