The teaser of Parineeti Chopra's upcoming project Saina - a biopic on badminton champ Saina Nehwal - is here and we can't get enough of the actress' uncanny resemblance to the shuttler. The teaser offers glimpses of how Saina Nehwal chooses a different path unlike other girls in her childhood to become one of India's best badminton players. The video starts with a shot of a badminton court with Parineeti's voiceover: "Mera desh Bharat, abaadi sawa sau crore, usme se aadhi ladkiya. Raja beta college padhega mera, beti chulha phuke. Aur fir 18 ke hote hi, hath peele, story finish. Lekin mere sath aesa nahi hua, karchi-tawe ke badle mein pakdi maine talwar. Saamne kaun hai, iss se mjhe kabhi koi fark nahi pada, mera maqsad, ekdum saral - saamne waale ko chhit kar dena, maar dena."
The following shots show Saina (played by Parineeti) entering a badminton court, practicing with her coach, winning an Olympic medal and five medals in Commonwealth Games and becoming "the only Indian woman badminton player to be world no. 1." The final sequence in the teaser will surely give you goosebumps. It shows Saina waving back at the audience after a match, with the Indian flag on her shoulders.
