"I'm 100 per cent fit now and can't wait to step into the badminton court and play the game again. I thank my entire Saina team for their invaluable support and my medical team for making me heal so quickly and getting me back on court," Parineeti said in a statement  

"I'm feeling very positive to pull off the intense shooting schedule that lies ahead of me because it will involve me playing badminton for 8-10 hours at a stretch. So, I'm glad I'm back to full fitness," she added. Saina will be directed by Amol Gupte, who has Stanley Ka Dabba and Hawa Hawaai to his credit.
