Priyanka Chopra ‘cannot wait’ to watch Parineeti Chopra play Saina Nehwal

Parineeti Chopra’s Saina is all set to release on theatres on Firday, March 26th. The film is directed by Amole Gupte.

Parineeti Chopra is all set to release her latest upcoming project ‘Saina.’ Helmed by Amole Gupte, the movie is a biopic of Saina Nehwal. Parineeti posted early reviews of the movie on her Instagram and asked for support for her film.


Her cousin, Priyanka Chopra tweeted her post along with the statement, “Super proud @ParineetiChopra cannot wait to watch!! ❤️🔥.”

Director Amole Gupte had recently spoken about how Shraddha Kapoor was his first choice for the film. It was after she pulled back from the project that Parineeti came on board.

“It was just a quirk of fate. While Shraddha was shooting with us for the first two days–all prepped up to play Saina–she got dengue. And with that, she went deep down and was in recovery for a month. Because this is a sports film, she can’t come and do some emotional scenes, she has to play the sport,” he added.
