‘Didn’t take any external pressure’: Parineeti Chopra on replacing Shraddha Kapoor in ‘Saina’

The trailer for Saina was dropped on Monday and it has become a topic of discussion on the Internet. The film directed by Amole Gupte stars Parineeti Chopra in the titular role as Saina Nehwal. The trailer was launched at an event held in Mumbai and the whole team of Saina marked their presence. For the uninitiated, it was Shraddha Kapoor who earlier played the role and was then replaced by Parineeti.

When Amole was asked about Parineeti replacing Shraddha, he decided to skip the question by citing COVID-19 as a reason. Gupte stated, “What did you say? I couldn’t hear. I can’t answer this question, I am shivering.”

Whereas when Parineeti was asked about it, the actor said, “I had only my pressure and that of my director. I wanted to impress him and work hard to learn the sport. I didn’t take any external pressure. The pressure was me, my coach approving what I’m learning, my director approving what I’m looking like on-screen. There was no other pressure.”

At the event, Parineeti was all praises for Saina and shared, “We had the full support of Saina. She gave us access to her life. I would call her, video call her and she would answer all my questions. That way pressure management was better. I already had the pressure to learn badminton, I couldn’t have taken anything else. I would’ve crumbled and wouldn’t have been able to concentrate. Doing Saina is a challenge for me.”
