Manav Kaul who was trained under Eshan Naqvi to portray the role of a badminton coach revealed how he prepped-up for this role. He was quoted as saying, “I used to play badminton as a child and thought I play well. But when I met Eshan, my trainer for the film, I realised I knew nothing about the sport and had to unlearn what I did and start from scratch. My stamina was low, I’d fall down after just 10 minutes of playing, feeling like my heart would jump out of my body,” reports Mirror. The makers are yet to announce the exact release date of Saina. The film is scheduled to be released next year.
