‘Saina’ is an upcoming biopic film based on the life of badminton player Saina Nehwal. Parineeti Chopra will be playing the lead role in the film. The poster of the film was released on March 2 and while many fans praised Parneeti for the script selection others pointed out a flaw.
The hand gesture shown in the poster is more inclined towards that of how a player serves the ball in Tennis. People pointed out that the makers of the poster should have been more careful and would have rather asked an actual badminton fan to make the poster.
Twitter stormed with reactions such as, ‘Badminton ka serve neeche se hota hai. A tennis fan must have made the poster’, and ‘Is it Sania mirza biopic Or Saina Nehwal’s’ wrote another Twitter user.
Parineeti Chopra shared the poster of her film writing, ‘Saina, March 26 in cinemas’. The film was supposed to be released in the year 2020, however due to the pandemic it got rescheduled. The biopic is directed by Indian screenwriter Amole Gupta who is also popularly known for the film Taare Zameen Par.
Earlier for the main role in the film Shraddha Kapoor was chosen, however, due to her several other projects she decided to relinquish from the film.
