Parineeti Chopra is currently committed to Amole Gupte's film about the life of ace badminton player, Saina Nehwal. This role that was earlier being essayed by Shraddha Kapoor landed in the lap of Chopra as the former couldn't adjust her dates. Now that the Ishaqzaade actor is playing Nehwal, she has to meticulously understand the technicalities involved in the game and also get into her psyche and emotions.

She's learning the ropes with the former first, sweating it out to ensure she gets into the skin of the character with precision. It's an ambitious role and a fascinating one, and after being wasted in banal outings like Namaste England and Jabariya Jodi, the actor finally lands a part that promises to possess some meat.
