Saina, the biopic of star badminton player Saina Nehwal, is one of the few Bollywood films to have reached theaters this year. This film, directed by Amol Gupte (of Taare Zameen Par fame), starred Parineeti Chopra in the lead role. This sports drama debuts on Amazon Prime Video today, almost a month after its theatrical release.
Saina was expected to be released in the second half of 2020, but the film's release has been delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It was finally released on March 26. The film received mixed reviews, but Parineeti Chopra's performance was praised.

Manav Kaul plays Pullela Gopichand, and Eshan Naqvi plays Parupalli Kashyap in Saina. The film's theatrical run in North India was also hampered by the 50 percent occupancy rule. Saina is now available on Prime Video for those who missed it in theaters or who enjoy biographical sports dramas.
