Parineeti Chopra will soon be seen in Siana Nehwal’s biopic Saina. The actor received a lot of appreciation and criticism at the same time after the trailer was out.
Parineeti stepped in Shraddha Kapoor’s shoes after she backed out from the film, since then the actress has been constantly seen practising her badminton skill and it took her 6 months of practice before the first shot.
Parineeti received a lot of advise in the process of her preparation for the film. Parineeti revealed that Priyanka Chopra told her to focus on getting the character’s feel right. Priyanka had herself starred in the biopic of boxer Mary Kom.
Parineeti further said that Priyanka was one of the first people she called and spoke to about her look. She said that even Priyanka does not look like Mary Kom but she transformed herself to look like the boxer in the film. Priyanka also suggested Parineeti to not use prosthetics and to just mould her body like Saina’s.
In a recent interview Parineeti agrees that she doesn’t look like Saina. Her focus was getting her posture and body language right for the character.
The movie is written and directed by Amole Gupte the movie will hit theatres on 26th March.
