Saina trailer: From Sania Nehwal's stance on the badminton court to her body language off it, Parineeti Chopra gets into the skin of the ace shuttler to near perfection.

It took several stepping stones for actor Parineeti Chopra to get into playing the titular role in Saina Nehwal’s upcoming biopic, titled Saina. But, seeing the film’s trailer on Monday, we are just glad that she came onboard. Parineeti seems to have nailed the look in the trailer.

After days of teasing fans with the first look video, the makers of Saina dropped its trailer on Monday. And in the 2.3-minute Saina trailer, we are shown glimpses of everything Saina faced to emerge numero uno. The trailer has been cut in a way that the movie looks to depict the two pillars of strength for Saina – her mother and father. Manav Kaul plays her coach (on the lines of Pullela Gopichand).

Saina not just rides on the journey of the badminton player, but also touches upon gender relates taboos in our society.

The long-in-the-making biopic on ace shuttler Saina Nehwal is directed by Amole Gupte, who has previously helmed movies such as Stanley Ka Dabba and Hawa Hawaai.

For the biopic, Parineeti has been religiously learning the game. She had shared that she was playing badminton for two hours every day and training for an hour at least to sport an athlete’s physique and attitude.

Talking about preparing for the role, Parineeti had earlier said in a statement, “I was dying to do a sports-based film. It is a part of my personality as an actor that I have never explored, and I am so happy that I get to portray a strong and powerful girl like Saina. She has put our country on the world map, and I excited to put in all the training and hard work that comes with learning the game of Badminton and portraying Saina on screen.”
