The nearly one-and-a-half-minute teaser of ‘Saina’ opens with a shot of a badminton court with Parineeti’s voiceover speaking about how half of the Indian population comprises of females who are only expected to cook and then are married off at the age of 18.

The final sequence of the teaser will surely give viewers goosebumps, as it shows Saina waving back at the audience after a match, with the Indian flag on her shoulders.

Sharing the teaser of ‘Saina’ on her Twitter handle, Parineeti tweeted, “SAINA – TEASER TRAILER COMING OUT SOON!”
