Deepika Padukone to play Saina Nehwal on-screen

Sports inspire movies. Sports have been an important subject matter for our Bollywood filmmakers, it is truly inspiring. If Priyanka Chopra will be seen playing Olympic winner Mary Kom then Deepika Padukone will be seen stepping into ace badminton player Saina Nehwal’s shoes.

Filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt is keen to make a film based on Saina Nehwal and he thinks Deepika will be the perfect choice. Deepika Padukone is not only the daughter of former badminton player Prakash Padukone but she is also a state level badminton player. She left sport for movies.

Saina also feels Deepika would be the right choice to portray her character on-screen.

According to sources, "Mahesh Bhatt and the badminton ace both want Dippy to play the role as they feel that she would be able to do justice to the character."

Well, it would be really interesting to see Deepika enacting Saina Nehwal!
