The first poster for the movie Saina 

The first poster of the long anticipated biopic based on the renowned badminton player Saina Nehwal was dropped on Tuesday. The movie titled ‘Saina’ stars Parineeti Chopra, Paresh Rawal and Manav Kaul and is set to hit the theatres on 26 March.

The poster was shared on Tuesday and it depicts a hand reaching out in the air as a shuttle hangs above it, presumably to show a badminton player readying to serve. However, the serve looks much like that of a tennis player’s and not so much a badminton player’s.

However, in the poster the hand reaches out to the shuttlecock like a tennis player would.
