As Bollywood is undergoing content transformation by crafting realistic and content driven films, biopics are the new flavour in Bollywood and the filmmakers are sensing the brew of the new movement to their advantage.


As reported earlier, Shraddha Kapoor, who is essaying the role of the badminton champ Saina Nehwal in Saina Nehwal biopic had a romantic song shot with real life badminton player and musician Eshan Naqvi, before she was diagnosed with dengue. Eshan Naqvi has been roped in to play the male protagonist opposite Shraddha Kapoor in the biopic.


Commenting about the same, a source was quoted by a leading tabloid saying, "Shraddha and Eshan started off shooting for a romantic song composed by Amaal Mallik and choreographed by Vijay Ganguly. The team has been on a short break after she was diagnosed with dengue. They are expected to resume shoot soon and wrap up the song after which they will also start on their scenes."


The report further stated that Amol Gupte chose Eshan as he found him convincing and apt for the role. Eshan has been coaching Shraddha in the game as a part of the prep for the film. Shraddha Kapoor's badminton portions will be shot next year only after the actress gets into the skin of the game completely after her intense training.


About the same, Shraddha had earlier said to a leading tabloid, "I've been attending badminton classes daily at 6 am. My coach, Eshan Naqvi, is a young guy but there's so much to learn from him. He is an amazing coach."
