Earlier in the day, Parineeti had also shared the poster of the film. An elated Saina too shared it on her social media accounts. “I’m so glad to share a glimpse of my upcoming movie, #Saina. Lots of love to the entire team. In cinemas on 26th March,” the badminton player tweeted. Responding to her tweet, film’s lead actress Parineeti wrote, “The one I did this for.”
Saina is directed by Amole Gupte and was shot in 2019. It was originally supposed to release in summer last year but got delayed due to the pandemic. Shraddha Kapoor was initially cast as Saina Nehwal but later replaced by Parineeti.
Parineeti will also be seen in the film “Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar”, which has been directed by Dibakar Banerjee. The film also stars Arjun Kapoor and is slated to release on March 19.
