first_imgBadminton ace Saina Nehwal feels actress Deepika Padukone is the best choice to play her onscreen.At a public event recently, the Olympic Bronze winner said, “I think only Deepika Padukone can do justice to my onscreen image. Firstly, people should be able to connect with the character and given Deepika’s popularity, she would be perfect for the role.”Deepika Padukone was a national level badminton playerDirecror Mahesh Bhatt is planning a biopic on Saina, which is reportedly at a nascent stage.”She knows badminton quite well. Apart from the strokes and bends, she is aware of all the actions in the game. And since it will be a film based on a sportsperson’s life, it wouldn’t be right to go with flaws in strokes and patterns. I have seen her play, and she is really good at it,” Saina added.Deepika Padukone is the daughter of Badminton player Prakash Padukone and has played the sport at national level before she turned to modelling.Meanwhile, Saina says she is not looking at acting herself at the moment.”I want people to know me for the sport and my game, and for nothing else. Also, it’s very important to remain focussed as once you lose focus you can’t perform well anymore. So it is a conscious effort on my part to avoid the limelight. If the film happens, it will only show my struggle to achieve what I have,” she said.last_img
