As we all know, Shraddha Kapoor is gearing up for the release of Haseena Parkar. The film is a biopic on ganster Dawood Ibrahim’s sister. But after Haseena Parkar, she has another biopic in line. The actress will be seen in the shoes of badminton champion Sania Nehwal. The film will be directed by Amole Gupte.
Today, she had a training session in the game with Nehwal and former Badminton champion Pullela Gopichand, who is fondly known as P Gopichand. Kapoor posted pictures with them on her Instagram and Twitter pages.
One picture shows Nehwal instructing Kapoor about the game. The latter is intently listening to her with a serious expression. The other picture has the two of them posing together. After watching this picture, you can’t help but notice the similar looks of Nehwal and Kapoor.
Kapoor has a unique record of starring in two biopics in such quick successions. Interestingly, the two personalities she portrays in both films are as different as chalk and cheese – one a badminton player and the other from Mumbai’s murky underworld.
The Nehwal biopic, which is yet untitled, comes after Mary Kom (2014) and M S Dhoni: The Untold Story (2016), both of which are based on sportspersons This year also saw the release of Sachin Tendulkar’s documentary titled Sachin: A Billion Dreams.
