The Saina Nehwal biopic, in which Parineeti Chopra has taken on the sportswoman’s role, is apparently eyeing a theatre release in March.
Pinkvilla reports that there were plans to release the film, reportedly titled ‘Saina’, straight on Amazon Prime, skipping the cinemas. However, makers are now thinking of releasing the film in theatres, as a source revealed, “With cinema halls opening up with 100% occupancy in most places, the producers felt that it’s best to bring Saina on the big screen considering that it’s tells the story of a sporting iconic that deserves to be enjoyed in the cinema halls”.
The source explained that the films could release in March or April, “A lot of factors were taken into consideration to reverse the decision and then decide on the release date. As things stand today, it’s set for a March 26 release in cinema halls across India. Producer, Bhushan Kumar, is now all set to unwind his line up extending to over 20 major films through the year, which begins with Mumbai Saga on March 19”.
In the meanwhile, Chopra’s latest offering, ‘The Girl on the Train’, is now streaming on Netflix.
