Parineeti Chopra’s next project teaser Saina – a biopic on badminton champion Saina Nehwal – is here and we can’t get enough of the actress’ eerie resemblance to the shuttle. The teaser offers a glimpse of how Saina Nehwal takes a different path unlike other girls in her childhood to become one of India’s best badminton players. The video begins with a photo of a badminton court with Parineeti’s voiceover: “Mera desh Bharat, abaadi sawa sau crore, usme se aadhi ladkiya. Raja beta college padhega mera, beti chulha phuke. Aur fir 18 ke hote hi, hath peele, story finish. Lekin mother sath aesa nahi hua, karchi-tawe ke badle mein pakdi maine talwar. Saamne kaun hai, iss se mjhe kabhi koi fark nahi pada, mera maqsad, ekdum saral – saamne waale ko chhit kar dena, maar dena. “
The following shots show Saina (played by Parineeti) entering a badminton court, training with her coach, winning an Olympic medal and five Commonwealth Games medals and becoming “the only Indian badminton player to be world No.1. “. The final teaser sequence will surely give you goosebumps. It shows Saina greeting the audience after a match, with the Indian flag on her shoulders.
