As Shraddha Kapoor gears up to bring the journey of ace Indian shuttler Saina Nehwal to the big screen, the actor says it will be one of the most challenging projects of her career.

"I feel her [Nehwal] career is going great guns, the way she has bounced back after her injury is inspiring. It is a huge responsibility on all of us to make sure that we do a thorough job of presenting her on the big screen. It is a daunting and challenging job," says Kapoor.

Currently preparing for the biopic on the 27-year-old London Olympics bronze medalist, the actor says she is enjoying playing badminton.

Says the actor, "I fell in love with the game when I started playing it. But it is very challenging. I usually start playing at 6 am, for two hours or so. We aim to practise everyday, but if my arms or legs get too sore, I skip the class. I feel tempted to play that time as well, but I have been advised not to play as I might injure myself."

Kapoor, 30, says she often texts the badminton star when she has queries regarding the game. "She is always prompt and helpful. I shared a video of me practising badminton and she gave me her honest feedback."
