When Saina won her third Super Series title in a row, actress Deepika Padukone, a former state-level badminton champion, not only congratulated her, but invited the 20-year-old to play a match with her.

Talking to HT City, Saina said, “It will be fun to play a match with Deepika. Though I’ve met her once in Delhi, I’m sure it would great to meet her again, this time on the badminton court.”

“Let’s play a game when ur in mumbai next. been a while since I played,” Deepika had written on Twitter, after Saina’s win. Incidentally, Deepika is the daughter of veteran badminton player Prakash Padukone, whom Saina admires.
