Actress Shraddha Kapoor, who has started shooting for the biopic on India's veteran shuttler Saina Nehwal titled Saina, said that she is excited to embark in this new journey.

On her Instagram story, Shraddha shared a photograph of herself along with filmmaker Amol Gupte and producer Bhushan Kumar holding the film's clapboard. "Here we go! So excited to embark on this new journey. Need all your wishes,” Shraddha wrote.

The actress also shared a letter written by Gupte, which read: "Our darling daughter Shraddha, sai ko yaad karte hue tumhara naam Saina rakhte hain (let's remember God and keep your name as Saina)... Let this journey be the most memorable for you... Dearest bachcha (baby) we love you."

Shraddha has been reportedly preparing for the film, by training under Indian team head coach Pullela Gopichand. Very few details have been made available about the film otherwise.

Shraddha, in the meantime, is in a celebratory mood as her August release Stree fared exceptionally well at the box office. Her new film Batti Gul Meter Chalu, opposite Shahid Kapoor, hit screens on September 21.
