Producer Bhushan Kumar also tweeted, "Delighted to welcome @ParineetiChopra on board for the Saina Nehwal biopic!"
Parineeti Chopra made her debut in Bollywood with the film Ladies Vs. Ricky Bahl in 2001. She has mostly stuck to the genre of romantic comedies and intense drama. Kesari and the Saina Nehwal biopic will be a major shift for her choice of genre.
Shraddha Kapoor however, has been a bit more experimental in her roles. She made her debut in 2013 in Aashiqui 2 and has since taken many risks with her career. She appeared in Vishal Bharadwaj’s critically acclaimed Haider and the action drama Baaghi. She also appeared in the comedy horror film Stree.
The one thing Parineeti and Shraddha have in common is that they both often sing for their films. Shraddha will be seen in Sujeeth’s action thriller Saaho with Prabhas and Parineeti will be seen in Jabariya Jodi with Siddharth Malhotra.
