Ace shuttler Saina Nehwal wants Deepika Padukone to portray her in the upcoming biopic on herself. Calling her a “good” badminton player, Saina said Deepika is apt and can do full justice to the character. “Her father has been a badminton player and I have seen her playing badminton. She used to play really good. She can do justice to the role and I really wish she can do the role,” Saina said during the NDTV Indian of the Year award.

Saina was speaking at the NDTV Indian Of The Year Award ceremony.

Deepika, who was present at the ceremony, said she would love to play her onscreen. “We have played together many a times and she was always way better than me. I think we had fun times together. Anything for the love of sport and especially for badminton,” she said.
