Biographical films on sportspersons have become regular nowadays in Bollywood. After the success of films like Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, Mary Kom and Sachin: A Billion Dreams, moviegoers are awaiting a biopic on badminton ace Saina Nehwal.

Shraddha Kapoor is enacting Saina in the upcoming film for which the actress is spending a lot of time with the 2010 London Olympics bronze medallist to get tips on the sport, her life among other things.

Saina Nehwal on Friday tweeted a photograph which had herself, chief national coach Pullela Gopichand and Shraddha Kapoor posing for a click after a practice session in Hyderabad.

“Today’s badminton practice session ... Gopi sir , @ShraddhaKapoor and me #Biopic,” tweeted Saina.

This comes after Saina recently reunited with Gopichand and shifted back to train at the latter’s academy in Hyderabad.

The two-time World Championships medallist had shifted to Bangalore in 2014 to train with U Vimal Kumar after falling out with Gopichand.
