Shabash Mithu teaser is out and Tapsee Pannu looks impressive playing the lead role which based on the life of the captain of Indian women’s cricket team Mithali Raj. The trailer starts with her stepping inside the stadium as Mithali Raj while the crowd cheers for her. Sharing the teaser, Taapsee Pannu wrote:
“In this Gentlemen’s sport, she did not bother to rewrite history… Instead she created HERSTORY.”
The teaser shows how Mithali made a mark on the Indian cricket team and inspired millions of people. Raj breaks the shakes of orthodox thinking that cricket is the only Gentlemen’s game.
Shabash Mithu is one of the most anticipated movies of 2022.
The audience is loving this new avatar of Taapsee. The film is directed by Srijit Mukherji and Viacom18 studio has done the project work. The movie will show the struggling days of the ODI captain before joining the India women’s national cricket team.
India women’s cricket team captain Mithali Raj has stunned the cricket pundits on various occasions during her career spanning more than two decades. She has played a lead role in putting women’s cricket on the world map and at the same time has also led the Women In Blue to two World Cup finals in the 2005 and 2017 editions respectively.
Bollywood is inspired by the success of biopics based on cricketers’ life. The success of ‘MS Dhoni’ and ’83’, at box office has given them a lot of hope. With another biopic based on Jhulan Goswami’s life titled ‘Chakda Xpress’ in the pipeline, it is clear the Bollywood clearly wants to make the most of the inspiring life journeys of cricketers – both male and female.
