Facing challenges, actor work hard to do a sports biopic. It is essential to master the sport for the film and also to learn the body language and mannerism of the actual sporting icon and then replicating it on screen. Saina Nehwal is a champion badminton player with incredible discipline. Parineeti Chopra feels emulating her way of life and learning to play the game like her is the first step to actually becoming her on screen. Like Saina, Parieeti is starting her day at 5 am every single day, with badminton practice every alternate day at a suburban sports club!

Parineeti Chopra says, “I am actually quite excited to get into the character of Saina, get into the skin of a world champion because playing a fictional character might not have been as exciting as playing a real character. Here, I have somebody who has extensive documentation on exactly how she plays, who she played every match in her life. Every single moment that she has ever played badminton is on screen! So, to kind of imbibe that and to kind of learn that is really exciting for me as an actor. I wanted to do a sports biopic for a long time.

She also shared some details of her preparation for the role to us. “This project is absolutely perfect for me because I will have to be in this disciple for the next 9 months of my life and I am pretty kicked about it. I just hope that the entire sports community, Saina herself and everybody who has expectations from this film is finally happy about what we achieve. My prep usually starts at 5 am because we have taken up courts where we didn’t want any kind of distraction. We start playing at 6 am till 8 am!” the talented actor reveals.

“Since I am actually playing badminton to prepare myself, I have a great physio team and world-class players with me to train me and condition me. Amol sir’s team has given me all the support that I need, Yonex the badminton brand has given me all the gear that I need, so there is a lot of support from a huge team around me who are working around the clock to make sure that I have everything that I need to become the character. It’s really cool and I am really happy but honestly, it makes me really nervous. I have given myself at least 3- 4 months to completely learn the sport, the way I need to and only then I will go on set because I want to do justice to the film and to Saina. It’s a huge honour for me to play and live the life of one our country’s biggest sporting icon,” says Pari. The movie is produced by Bhushan Kumar, Divya Khosla Kumar and Krishan Kumar.
