If you can recall, it was in April 2017 when Shraddha Kapoor was roped in to play Saina Nehwal in her biopic, but the actress is yet to begin shooting for the film. And if industry sources are anything to go by, it is not going to start very soon. That, unless Shraddha aces her badminton skills to play the Arjuna awardee on screen, in time. The biopic which is going to be directed by Amole Gupte, is now hanging by the shuttle and we wonder if it has affected the relationship between the athlete and the actor.

A DNA report quoted a source as saying, "It's been a year and apparently, Shraddha hasn't been able to ace the game. The Padma Bhushan recipient has been in constant touch with the team. She has allegedly told them that she will give a go ahead only when Shraddha is completely ready." The source even added that it is only a fair demand for the movie to be convincing enough and explained, “If you aren’t good at the sport, it won’t take the audience any time to figure it out.” And we couldn't agree more.
Meanwhile, Shraddha is awaiting the release of Stree where she is playing a ghost alongside Rajkummar Rao. Reportedly, “She has been shooting back to back. She shot for Stree for around 20-22 days. Then, she had two big schedules for Batti Gul Meter Chalu. She’s now expected to begin work on Nitesh Tiwary’s next opposite Sushant Singh Rajput. So, there’s hardly any time for her to practice badminton.” Well, we can only hope, for the sake of cinema, that the team can map out the dates for the shoot soon.
