The movie was initially purported to function Shraddha Kapoor as Saina. The actor had aced the look check and had reportedly began coaching beneath Indian staff head coach Pullela Gopichand for over a month-and-a-half to get into the function of the badminton participant. After intensive coaching, Shraddha had began filming the film too in September 2018, but it surely was stalled as she was identified with dengue. Then, in early 2019, T-Series had introduced that Parineeti Chopra had changed Shraddha within the biopic.
The movie’s 2020 release needed to be pushed due to the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic, due to which all cinema-halls needed to be closed down as India went into a lockdown.
Talking about how she was making ready for the movie, Parineeti had earlier mentioned in a assertion, “I was dying to do a sports-based film. It is a part of my personality as an actor that I have never explored, and I am so happy that I get to portray a strong and powerful girl like Saina. She has put our country on the world map, and I excited to put in all the training and hard work that comes with learning the game of Badminton and portraying Saina on screen.”
For the biopic, Parineeti has been religiously studying the sport. She had shared that she was taking part in badminton for 2 hours daily to and coaching for an hour not less than to sport an athlete physique and perspective.
