Deepika Padukone to be Saina Nehwal onscreen
Mahesh Bhatt is keen on making a biopic on Olympic Bronze winner Sania Nehwal and wishes to take Deepika to play the character of Sania. According to Sania only Deepika would be able to do justice to her role. Sania said “She knows badminton quite well. Apart from the strokes and bends, she is aware of all the actions in the game. And since it will be a film based on a sportsperson’s life, it wouldn’t be right to go with flaws in strokes and patterns. I have seen her play, and she is really good at it”. According to Mahesh Bhatt, the movie was still in primary stage and needed a good story to capture the life of Sania.
