मिताली राज की बायोपिक के लिए शूटिंग 2020 में शुरू होगी : तापसी पन्नू.


It’s no secret that Taapsee Pannu is interested in sport. Besides co-owning the Pune franchise in the Premier Badminton League, her passion for sport is also evident in her cinema. She has played a hockey player in Soorma, a biopic based on the life of former Indian captain Sandeep Singh Saini and Saand Ki Aankh, a film based on the lives of shooters Chandro and Prakash Tomar. Her character in Anurag Kashyap’s Manmarziyan was also a hockey player. This sporting streak is all set to continue with her new film, except this time, the actor will pick up the cricket bat.

In an announcement on Tuesday, Taapsee revealed that she will play Indian ODI captain Mithali Raj in a biopic based on her life. Titled Shabaash Mithu, the film will see Rahul Dholakia assume the director’s chair and will be rolled out by Viacom18 Studios.

The film’s announcement coincides with the batswoman’s 37th birthday. In an Instagram post, Taapsee wished the Indian cricketer, also expressing her desire to emulate Raj’s signature cover drive.

The Pink actor also shared an image of Mithali’s autograph. This announcement comes after she had hinted at taking up a sporting biopic a few months ago. With this film, Taapsee joins the likes of Emraan Hashmi (Azhar), Sushant Singh Rajput (MS Dhoni), Shahid Kapoor (Jersey) and Ranveer Singh (83) who also have cricket biopics to their name.

Besides this, she will also be seen in Rashmi Rocket, a sports drama based on a fictional Gujarati runner.

अभिनेत्री ने आगे कहा, “चूंकि फिल्म की शूटिंग 2020 के मध्य से शुरू होगी इसलिए मैं फिल्म की तैयारी अगले साल की शुरुआत से शुरू कर दूंगी।”
