It has been my huge honour to play a sport I love and put my country on a pedestal while achieving my dream. Parineeti is a fabulous actor and we both connected so easily when we met. I wish the team all the best for the film and hope everyone leaves the theatre with dreams.”
Parineeti Chopra, who plays the lead in the film said, “It’s a huge responsibility to essay someone like Saina Nehwal on screen.

The film is a celebration of the unending spirit that lies in each woman.”
