Parineeti Chopra says that watching her movie "Saina" on television is going to be a fulfilling experience. She recalls the days she spent preparing for the role. While sharing her experience, Parineeti says: "'Saina' has inspired millions and it was extremely fulfilling to play her on screen. It took blood and sweat to transform myself. I vividly remember spending my days as an athlete and even crying out of pain on the court. But it was all worth it. Saina Nehwal was my initial guiding force. Priyanka Chopra even gave me pointers on how to mould myself for the role, since she played a sports character in the past."
Ace badminton player Saina Nehwal says it was surreal to see her own life on screen. She is delighted looking at Amole Gupte's creative vision, Parineeti and child actor Naishaa's portrayal of her character.
