The much-awaited biopic drama on ace Badminton player Saina Nehwal, starring Parineeti Chopra, finally released yesterday. Let us check how much Saina collected on its first day at the box office.
Directed by Amol Gupte, who earlier made films like Stanley Ka Dabba and Hawa Hawaai. Saina is based on the life of ace Badminton player Saina Nehwal who went to the top spot in 2015 from no.2 position. She has also won over 24 international titles
Saina was initially set to release in September 2020, but was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic in India. Manav Kaul will be playing the role of Pullela Gopichand who is Nehwal’s coach while the biopic drama is being produced by T-Series. Saina opened to rave reviews from both critics and audience who gave a thumbs up to the sports biopic drama
Unfortunately, Saina has been released at a time when the COVID-19 cases have started increasing which has caused huge impact at the box office. Due to the rise in cases, there have been restrictions and night curfews in few places. As per early report, the Parineeti Chopra starrer Saina earned a low Rs 50 lakhs on its first day which is not a good sign. However, the good news that word of mouth is good and there are chances the collections will go up on the second day.
