Saina Nehwal is all set to join the league with big names such as Mary Kom and Milkha Singh.
Reports suggest that Saina’s life and achievements will soon be portrayed through a biopic, which will be lead by ‘Taare Zameen Par’ writer Amol Gupte. And look who Saina finds perfect for the portrayal? It’s none other than Deepika Padukone!!!
Saina, World’s 2nd Badminton player, shared an image of her and DP and told the media at NDTV Indian of the Year award:
“Her father has been a badminton player and I have seen her playing badminton. She used to play really good. She can do justice to the role and I really wish she can do the role.”
Amol Gupte stated after meeting Saina at Hyderabad,
“How many times have we encountered either a male or a female Indian get No. 1 ranking in a world sport? None – except Saina Nehwal. That makes it different, doesn’t it? It’s a story of a ‘tigress beti‘, ‘princess beti‘ who has set fire to the badminton court with her prowess like no one else before.”
