Recently, it was reported that Sharddha Kapoor opted out of Saina Nehwal’s biopic, directed by Amole Gupte. However, the reason why she left the film was not stated.
A new report suggests, that the actress who had been associated with the project had put the movie on standby for about a year now and the director kept waiting for Shraddha to allot him dates. “Due to circumstances beyond her control, the actress kept giving other films priority over the national badminton champion’s biopic,” DNA quoted a source as saying.
Shraddha had begun filming on the Amole Gupte directorial in September last year. However, its shooting was halted soon, after she was diagnosed with dengue. Reportedly, she was supposed to resume work on the film this April, but now the Bhushan Kumar Production has decided to go ahead with Parineeti Chopra.
Separately, a report in a entertainment website states, that even after training for the sport about a year, the actress couldn’t ace it. A source was quoted as saying,”Even after being trained for more than a year, this chirpy actress has failed to get the nuances of the character right. She had been struggling to ace the sport that she was training in, forcing the makers to reconsider her.”
The decision to replace Sharddha with Parineeti was apparently taken keeping in mind former’s tight schedule. As of now, Shraddha is also busy with the promotion of her action thriller Saaho, which is all set to release in August this year. She has also been roped in for Baaghi 3 alongside Tiger Shroff which is expected to go on the floors in a few months and she is also working with Varun Dhawan for their upcoming film titled Street Dancer.
