According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, a source has confirmed that Parineeti Chopra will essay the role of the ace shuttler in the sports drama. Shraddha Kapoor has apparently stepped out of the project due to her tight schedules. The actress is presently shooting for Chhichhore. It was just last month when she started with Street Dancer 3D and meanwhile she also has Saaho in her kitty which slated to hit the screens in August. The source revealed to the tabloid, “Despite everyone’s best efforts to accommodate the Saina biopic, dates were clashing, so it made sense for Shraddha to opt out. The decision was taken by mutual consent. Meanwhile, Parineeti loved the script and will start prep soon.” Shraddha Kapoor Gets Diagnosed With Dengue, Shoot of Saina Nehwal Biopic Stalled.
