The latest report is that Parineeti has been roped in for the Saina Nehwal biopic helmed by Amole Gupte and Bhushan Kumar.
The movie had started in 2018 and had Shraddha Kapoor in the lead. Kapoor had already started the movie, after completing the strenuous prep. She, in fact, shot for a bit too before being diagnosed with dengue. She was advised bed rest and therefore could not finish the schedule.
Moving on, she had other film commitments including Street Dancer 3D with Varun Dhawan, Prabhas’s Saaho and now Chhichhore. Makers claim that the decision was taken mutually with everybody’s consent. Shraddha’s loss is Parineeti’s gain clearly as she is all pumped up to enthrall us with her first sports drama!
