Taapsee Pannu’s Shabaash Mithu trailer garners good response
We had previously reported about Taapsee Pannu starring in ‘Shabaash Mithu’, the biopic of Mithali Raj, arguably the greatest woman cricketer to have represented India. As the film gets ready for release on July 15, the makers have shared its trailer online. It chronicles the ups and downs and moments of glory of Mithali’s life right from her childhood. The film is directed by National-award winner Srijit Mukherji and scripted by Priya Aven.
Mithali Raj, who retired recently, is a veteran with over 20 years of experience in international cricket. She is regarded as one of the greatest batswomen to have ever played the game. Mithali holds numerous records like being the highest run-scorer in women’s international cricket and the only female cricketer to surpass the 6,000 run mark in WODIs. She is also the only woman cricketer to have played over 200 ODIs.
Taapsee underwent rigorous cricket training as part of preparations for the film and it is evident from the trailer. Vijay Raaz also plays a prominent role as her coach. Viacom18 Studios and Colosceum Media Production are jointly producing the film, which has music by Amit Trivedi and edits handled by Sreekar Prasad.
