Ace badminton player Saina Nehwal's biopic has been the talk of the town. Starring Parineeti Chopra as Saina, the film is directed by Amole Gupte. On Tuesday, the first poster and teaser of Saina released on social media. Although fans of Parineeti and Saina showed excitement, some people on social media were quick to notice a major blunder on the poster.
People slammed the makers of Saina for not getting their facts right on the poster. They pointed out that the hand gesture shown in the poster is more like a tennis serve and not how players would ideally hit a badminton serve.
I’m so glad to share a glimpse of my upcoming movie, #Saina. Lots of love to the entire team. In cinemas on 26th March.@ParineetiChopra #AmoleGupte @Manavkaul19 @eshannaqvi #BhushanKumar @deepabhatia11 @sujay_jairaj @raseshtweets #KrishanKumar @AmaalMallik @manojmuntashir ... pic.twitter.com/6e92WQHwly

One user wrote, "Badminton ka serve neeche se hota hai. A tennis fan must have made the poster." The other said, "Serena williams pe nai hai biopic poster banane wale chacha" A user said, "Isn’t that a tennis serve? Seems like a SANIA fan made the SAINA poster." "Which badminton player in the world serves like this! Looks like they mixed up the Saina & Sania biopic themes!!" said another person.

The biggest blunder !!! It's about Saina Nehwal and not *Sania Mirza* ...& a badminton's serve isn't similar to Tennis* Wonder who made or approved the creative.

@NSaina ‘s biopic poster looks like its made by a tennis player.
Since when is the shuttle tossed in the air for a badminton service? https://t.co/33I6d94h2I
