Shraddha Kapoor was earlier supposed to play the lead in Saina Nehwal’s biopic, but now has been replaced by Parineeti Chopra!
It was last year in September when Shraddha Kapoor had started shooting for Saina Nehwal’s biopic. But she soon fell ill with dengue and the shoot was halted. Post that she got busy with her other projects. And now it has been confirmed that she has been replaced by Parineeti Chopra in the biopic.
While the reason for the same is said to be Shraddha’s tight schedule, a source told Pinkvilla, “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 on saying, “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.”
Meanwhile, Shraddha Kapoor is going to be seen in films like Saaho with Prabhas and Chhichhore with Sushant Singh Rajput. The actress is currently shooting for the dance film Street Dancer with Varun Dhawan and also has Tiger Shroff’s Baaghi 3 in her kitty.
On the other hand, Parineeti Chopra is next going to be seen in Akshay Kumar’s Kesari. She is also a part of films like Arjun Kapoor’s Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar and Sidharth Malhotra’s Jabariya Jodi.
