Parineeti Chopra will shoot an extended sport sequence for her upcoming biopic on ace badminton player Saina Nehwal, nearly ten days after the actor suffered a neck injury which required her to rest.
Parineeti had a major spasm in her neck and spine area, and was advised by the doctor to not play badminton for at least a week. The actor will shoot the intense sequence today, which requires her to play badminton for 8 hours.
"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.
