Actress Parineeti Chopra, who is all set to play Saina Nehwal on screen, recently visited the ace badminton player's home in Hyderabad for the first time, as part fo preparation for her role. According to a report in a leading daily, "The actress got a tour of the house, thanks to Saina’s mother Usha Nehwal who showed her around and told her elaborately about her lesser-known habits, traits and the way she is at home with her family."
Apparently, Parineeti has also borrowed some of Saina’s clothes. What's more? She will reportedly be sporting short hair, in a portion of her formative years as a sportsperson, apart from donning two beauty spots on her face in order to look like the real Saina. Isn't that interesting?
Before heading to Hyderabad, Parineeti had said, "I want to become Saina. For that I want to go to her house and see how she lives. We have met many times, but this time I want to go to her house, live like her and eat like her for a day. She has promised me that her mom will feed me the exact food that Saina eats. So I am excited to go to her house and live her life for one whole day."
The Saina Nehwal biopic is directed by Amole Gupte and is being produced by T-series.
