Biopics are the "IT" formula for the directors and the viewers are also appreciating them as they get to know the real story behind the real heroes of the country. Director Amol Gupte is making a biopic on badminton player Saina Nehwal. It was in April 2017 that Shraddha Kapoor was roped in to play Saina in her biopic. After some time, reports started to float that the diva is not able to cope up with the training schedules and is not fitting the character of Saina. Now, Shraddha Kapoor has walked out of the Saina Nehwal biopic. Parineeti Chopra has stepped in to play the role of the badminton player. 

If you are wondering the real reason behind this, one of our sources told us, “Even after being trained for more than a year, this chirpy actress has failed to get the nuances of the character right. She had been struggling to ace the sport that she was training in, forcing the makers to reconsider her.” The source also added, “And while one would think that the Shraddha would be upset about being ousted from the film, nothing of that sort has happened. In fact, she was relieved to have been out of the project, knowing that she wasn’t able to get the character right.” 

When we had met Shraddha Kapoor while she was promoting Stree, we had asked her about the reports of her not being able to cope up with the training schedules. Back then, she had told us that it was tough for her and she wanted to take time for training. She went on to add that if you are playing the role of a real-life hero, you need to make sure that you're convincing and the audiences relate to it.

Okay so is Shraddha interested in doing only films left by Katrina. Saaho and then dance film. I guess one dance film with Varun and remo was enough in 2015. This time the torture will be even bigger with that India-pak story. I really hope that from now on films like tiger zinda Hai flop miserably who tries to show pak in good light and also those actors and directors should be thrown in Pakistan. People need to value the sacrifice of our shoulders. Coming to Shraddha, all three films are hero centric. This was a heroine centric film and if only it worked it could have established her as an A Lister in Bollywood. Saaho, dance film and baaghi will do nothing for her career and since she is already 32 now so in 2-3. Years she will vanish as all her roles would go to jhanvi and Sara. Alia is already ruling the Bollywood as no.1.

With parineeti the film is already flop. She don't have starpower and also she is only suitable for playing bubbly and loud girl roles. Even Katrina is far more versatile than her in acting. I am wondering why don't they cast Deepika. She is a big crowd puller and No actress in Bollywood can fit this role better than her. She was a badminton player and her dad was training. Shraddha. May be Deepika doesn't feel the story of saina is as heroic to be portrayed by her.

Whatever decision or with the mutual consent...the decision is proper. She did a good job leaving the film. An actor can't stop signing other films for shooting one. With you and always. A proud shraddha gem!❤️

Her gems will always support her!!!

She did a fare job from her view. She definitely shouldn't play the role if the makers are forcing. The makers decided to delay first as they planned to make the film a big budgeted. Now they are saying they want to wrap up by 2020. Wow...just wow! She is not dumb that to not to sign any project until the film relases. And she was ready to start shooting for the film and they decided to delay. She hadn't signed Street Dancer nor Baaghi 3 that time. Love you Shraddha. With her at any point in life.! Please don't spread fake news.!!

But for shraddha this can be career changing movie as everyone saying she can't do anything other than love stories......

If you are saying she wasn't prepared for the role was she dumb to start the shoot of the film? Your media is as fake as your name. Your name should be turned to "Fakevilla". Just spreading bullshit all around.

Dear pinkvilla,
Which source informed you about the news? I would like to here the name. First of your "THE REAL REASON" article of Shraddha being walked away from film is totally baseless. Stop spreading fake news. The dates clashing and tight schedule is the real reason behind her opting out of the film.

She is honest and humble enough to acknowledge that she is not prepared. This gives me another reason to admire her. Proud of you Shraddha!

The real reason is she can't act..

The real reason is due to disgraced people like you don't open up. Judging people is very easy. Whatever she is now is by her own. She had no godfather or has if I should say who only offers her films. She has many other people in industry who offer her films and don't act under "one production". If you can't praise prople atleast don't let their moral down.

right decision

yeh, they will have an actor playing badminton at Neha’s level. *eye roll*. Seems like Amol Gupte isn’t easy to work with. They could have gone for Sania Malhotra. But Parineeti with her image how is she going to fit better ? She isn’t even looking fit these days.

Love you shraddha anmol loser

I am happy that Shradha is not doing this movie, I have a feeling that it won’t work
