Confirmed: Taapsee Pannu to play Mithali Raj in biopic Shabaash Mithu

After playing an elderly shooter in Saand Ki Aankh, Taapsee Pannu will now be seen wearing cricket gloves and pads in her upcoming film. The actress is playing the lead role in Indian women's cricket captain Mithali Raj's biopic, Shabaash Mithu.

While there were reports that the Pink actress will be playing the role of the cricketer in the latter's biopic, Taapsee never confirmed the same. Today, on Mithali Raj's birthday Taapsee took to social media to announce the news.

Taapsee Pannu shared a number of pictures of herself with the skipper in which Mithali is seen cutting a cake. Along with the pictures, Taapsee wrote, "Happy Happy Birthday Captain @mithaliraj! You have made all of us proud in more than many ways and it’s truly an honour to be chosen to showcase your journey on screen. On this Birthday of yours I don’t know what gift I can give you but this promise that I shall give it all I have to make sure you will be proud of what you see of yourself on screen with #ShabaashMithu. PS- I am all prepared to learn THE cover drive’ #HappyBirthdayCaptain (sic)."

Last year, when the news of Taapsee Pannu being signed for the said biopic broke, PTI asked the actress about it. To which, the Badla actress had replied, "The script is not in place so it's too early to talk about it. Right now, they are collecting material and the script has not been written yet. If they offer me, I will be very happy. I really want to do a sports biopic."

 

It seems Taapsee's wish has been granted as she will be seen in a number of sports biopics, last being Saand Ki Aankh.

 

Apart from Shabaash Mithu, in which Taapsee will be seen playing a cricketer, the actress will be seen in another biopic of athlete Rashmi from Gujarat. The film is titled as Rashmi Rocket and a motion poster of the film was released earlier this year.

Taapsee's Mission Mangal co-star Akshay Kumar took to social media to release the poster and wrote, "This ROCKET is set for her next MISSION and she’s off to the tracks! Presenting a glimpse of @taapsee in and as #RashmiRocket. @MrAkvarious @RonnieScrewvala @RSVPMovies @iammangopeople #NehaAnand #PranjalKhandhdiya Music for the motion poster: @LesleLewis (sic)."
