I have always been fascinated with stories. Stories that transport you to another world of mystery, magic and possibilities. While books have their own charm, there is something magical about motion pictures. I always believed books, films and music have the power to shape culture.
The Saina movie project too us 6 years to get from the idea to the final release of the film. It had it shares of ups, downs, controversies and challenges. We started the film shoot with Shraddha Kapoor and had to reshoot with Parineeti Chopra. And just when you think it's all good and start preparing for the release, the pandemic is upon us. Forget the planned pre-Olympics launch, we were not even sure if the movie will ever be released in theatres.
I hope this movie inspires the next generation of sportswomen.
