Actress Shraddha Kapoor is currently in Hyderabad to begin shooting for her first Tollywood movie ‘Saaho’, opposite the ‘Baahubali’ star Prabhas, from Monday.

In the meantime, the actress has also decided to take some time out to practice badminton alongside Saina Nehwal for her upcoming Bollywood movie, where she will portray Sania Nehwal on big-screen.

“The shooting of Saaho begins from next week, so the actress has arrived early to rehearse the scenes and get her dialogues right. She is currently rehearsing with the assistant directors. She is giving her 100 per cent to the movie,” said a source close to the actress.

Sania Nehwal herself took to Twitter to confirm the news.

“Today’s badminton practice session ... Gopi sir, @ShraddhaKapoor and me,” posted Sania Nehwal on Twitter. 

Sania Nehwal biopic will be directed by Amole Gupte of ‘Stanley Ka Dabba’ and ‘Hawa Hawaai’ fame.
