She says, “I have already clocked 40 classes of badminton in preparation for this biopic. It is a really tough sport, but I am enjoying myself. To get an insight into the life of a sportsperson is fascinating. Saina’s journey itself is so interesting – right from her misses to her injuries and victories. I can relate to her journey in a big way, because I have gone through similar experiences in a different field. Despite everything, she has not let her focus shift and that’s what is truly inspiring.”

Shraddha was last seen in the film ‘Batti Gul Meter Chalu‘ with actors Shahid Kapoor and Yami Gautam. Directed by Shree Narayan Singh,
