One of the posters of the film has embroiled itself into controversy and not for the right reasons. The graphic poster shows the movement of a hand which looks more like a tennis serve and not Badminton. Unlike tennis, a badminton shuttle is not tossed high up in the air. Film's director Amol Gupte reacted to the controversy and described it as a 'high concept poster'. He wrote, "Has to be unfortunately explained in detail to a quick reacting, impatient world... Not stopping to think before rubbishing anything! Socho!"
Saina is based on the life of a stellar Badminton player, Saina Nehwal. The film is backed by T-Series. Earlier, Shraddha Kapoor was signed to play the lead in the film and the first poster featuring her was even out. However, the filming was halted soon after she was diagnosed with dengue. The film is directed by Amole Gupte and was shot in 2019. It was originally supposed to release in the summer of last year but got delayed due to the pandemic.
