Shabaash Mithu, Taapsee Pannu’s much-anticipated film, now has a teaser! In this movie, the actress will be seen portraying the role of Mithali Raj (female Indian cricketer). Mithali Raj is the only Indian cricketer to score seven consecutive 50s in one-day internationals. She is also the first female cricketer to achieve 200 runs in a test match. She has also been a captain in four World Cups and has been involved in the sports for 23 years.
In addition to highlighting Mithali Raj’s accomplishments in a few sentences, the teaser also includes Taapsee Pannu in the role of Mithali Raj. The actress has nailed the cricketer look. While the teaser doesn’t give us many details about Taapsee, it does show her on her way to hitting the ball right out of the park.
Taapsee Pannu shared a preview for her movie on Instagram and wrote, “She didn’t bother to rewrite history in this Gentlemen’s sport… instead, she made HERSTORY! #ShabaashMithu #AbKhelBadlega Coming soon!”
While the teaser for Shabaash Mithu is full of the cricketer’s accomplishments, the movie will also focus on Mithali Raj’s ups and downs and losses. Meanwhile, Taapsee Pannu released a photo after finishing the movie based on Mithali’s life in 2021.
The actress expressed while sharing a photo from the last day of filming alongside a photo from the set of the film. She said, When I was eight years old, someone inspired me to believe that cricket will one day be more than a gentleman’s game. Even we shall have a team and a personality. ‘Women in Blue’ is a film about women who wear blue. We’ll be there soon. #ShabaashMithu It’s the end of the movie! Prepare to cheer for the 2022 World Cup! #WomenInBlue is a hashtag for women who wear blue.”
Shabaash Mithu’s release date has yet to be declared by the filmmakers. The film was originally intended to be released on February 4, 2022.
