Shraddha Kapoor dengue saina nehwal biopic

Ever since the biopic of Saina Nehwal featuring Shraddha Kapoor was announced, the film has been facing some or the other obstacle. First, the film got pushed due to several reasons. Later, the news of Shraddha being replaced was doing the rounds. However, finally, the film went on floors just a few days back and now it is again in trouble as the actress has been diagnosed with dengue.


Shraddha has stopped shooting for the film owing to her health condition. Talking about Shraddha’s health, a source close to the film was quoted saying in Mumbai Mirror as, “Shraddha started feeling unwell a few days into the schedule. She stopped shooting on September 27 after a checkup revealed that she has dengue. She is expected to return to the film’s set in a couple of days.”

Just a couple of days back, Shraddha’s first look from the film was unveiled and she looked strikingly similar to Saina Nehwal. You can check her look here:

Reportedly, until Shraddha recuperates with dengue, the film’s director Amole Gupte has decided to continue shooting. Currently, he is working on the scenes with the supporting cast and a child actor who plays the young Saina in the biopic.

We hope the actress gets well soon and resumes the shooting of this much-awaited biopic at the earliest.
