The teaser then highlights Saina's many achievements, showing how her parents and coach encouraged her to be the only Indian woman badminton player to become world No. 1. 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.
