But recently, the actress’ tweet left us all shocked and rumors were started as to that the film had been put on hold or shelved.
However, director Amole Gupte has denied this.
In an interview, Gupte said,
“We start shooting in September. In December, Shraddha had traveled to Hyderabad to train at Saina’s mentor Pullela Gopichand’s badminton academy and continued with her training in Mumbai. I’ve been working on this film for over two years and it’s important to me. I’m looking forward to September.”
“That’s the plan for now. But it also depends on my actors’ dates. We will be shooting in studios and real locations, including several stadiums as we are chronicling Saina’s life story as authentically as possible,” says Amole.
