Bollywood actress Shraddha Kapoor, who was busy shooting 'Saina' - a biopic based on the life of badminton player Saina Nehwal, had to stop shooting as she was reportedly diagnosed with dengue fever.

According to a source who told Mumbai Mirror, Shraddha has been asked to take sufficient rest immediately after she got the news. However, she is likely to recover soon and return to the film sets after a few weeks. The source was quoted saying, "Shraddha started feeling unwell a few days into the schedule. However, she stopped shooting on September 27 soon after a checkup revealed that she has dengue."

But the good news is she will soon join the sets after she recovers. "She is expected to return to the film’s set in a couple of days. Meanwhile, Amole continues to shoot portions featuring the child actor who portrays the younger Saina, and other supporting artists," the source added.

The 31-year-old actress had earlier posted a picture showcasing her transformation into the ace badminton player, who won the bronze for the country in 2012 London Olympics.


Directed by Amol Gupte and produced by Bhushan Kumar of T-Series, the Saina Nehwal biopic went on floors on September 22.
