Saina Nehwal’s role to be played by Deepika Padukone in her biopic film by Amole Gupte.
Deepika Padukone is all over the B-town these days for various reasons and yet here comes one more nail to the coffin. Amole Gupte has finalised Deepika Padukone to play the role of Saina Nehwal for his upcoming film based on the ace Indian Badminton player. There has been a number of biopics in the past and various current projects are also flourishing in Bollywood. Farhan Akhtar starer “Bhaag Milkha Bhaag” based on Milkha Singh, Priyanka Chopra starer “Mary Kom” based on long forgotten boxing champion Mary Kom herself are few blockbusters of recent past.
The forthcoming sports biopic include, “Dangal” starring Mr. Perfectionist Aamir Khan based on wrestling(Kushti), “Azhar” directed by Tony D’souza based on Indian International Cricket player Mohammad Azharuddin to be played by Emraan Hashmi and “Dhoni: The Untold Story” again based on the Indian Cricket superstar M. S Dhoni.
With all these movies lined up for this year and one more addition from Amole Gupte casting Deepika Padukone has made this the Year of Biopic. Now, since its final and in writing as per Saina’s post on Twitter, we really are excited to see Deepika playing this role. I believe Deepika is the best to play this role taking into account her roots are deep into Badminton. As a teenager, she played badminton in national level championships and she is the daughter of the famous Badminton player Prakash Padukone, not to mention.
