Hindi Biopic Saina is based on the life of Badminton player Saina Nehwal. It stars Parineeti Chopra who will play the titular role as Saina Nehwal. The film tracks Saina’s life journey from a starry eyed kid up to 2018, when she was announced World No.1. We get to see her prepping for the Olympics, Commonwealth games and the sweat and tears behind the scenes.

This is a coming of age film that explores what it’s like being a young lady in a conservative Indian family and choosing to take an unconventional path. From the trailer we get glimpses of her interaction with her mum who also once aspired to be a world class athlete, her tumultuous relationship with her coach and her romantic pursuits with someone from a different caste which is a really big deal in India.
