After Priyanka as Mary Kom, now Deepika to play Saina Nehwal?

Just like Priyanka Chopra, who will soon feature in a biopic on the life of Olympic medal winning boxer Mary Kom, we have got to know that a biopic on ace shuttler Saina Nehwal is also in the making. The latest buzz is that veteran filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt is reportedly planning to make a film based on the life of badminton ace Saina Nehwal. And guess what none other than our Bollywood queen Deepika Padukone is being considered for the role!

Haryanvi girl, Saina Nehwal, is India's top badminton player. She is ranked No.5 in the world by the Badminton World Federation. The highlight of her career was winning the gold medal at the 2010 Commonwealth Games, held in India. She also received the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna Award, India's highest sporting honor, in 2010. She was given the Padma Shri as well. She shined at the London Olympics, winning the bronze in the woman's singles event.

Dippy, who is the daughter of former badminton player Prakash Padukone, and with her love for sports, will surely embrace this character better than anyone else.
