There were rumours earlier this week that the upcoming biopic of badminton player Saina Nehwal was shelved. However, filmmaker Amole Gupte has denied this news.

According to DNA, Gupte responded to the speculation, “I didn’t respond to reports because I know what I am doing. It is better that the production house speaks, which is T-Series, rather than me. We are definitely going on floors in September”.

He went on to add, “I have already given two-and-a-half years of my life. I am used to this pace (of working). There is a lot of preparation required for this film. We are at it”.

There was also some buzz that Shraddha Kapoor will no longer be playing protagonist but it seems she’s still very much a part of the film.
