Actor Taapsee Pannu is working hard to get into the skin of ace cricketer Mithali Raj for her upcoming biopic titled Shabaash Mithu. The actor, who started preparing for the film earlier this year, has been sharing a lot of pictures on Instagram where we see her polishing her on-field cricket technique.

In the latest post, we see Taapsee working on her cover drive, considered one of the most graceful shots in the sport. Taapsee shared the picture with a caption that read, “Taking the cover drive literally!”

Soon enough, actor Shahid Kapoor praised Taapsee’s cover drive, calling it “sharp.” Interestingly, Shahid also shot for a cricket-based film recently. He will be seen in the official Hindi-remake of Nani’s Telugu hit Jersey, where he plays a cricketer on the screen for the first time.

Sharing another photo on Instagram, Taapsee quoted cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar. Mentioning that she has her “eyes on the target”, Taapseee wrote, “People throw stones at you and you convert them into milestones.” The picture received a lot of love from Taapsee’s friends, family and fans. Her rumoured boyfriend Mathias Boe posted a heart-emoji in the comment section too.

On the work front, Taapsee recently wrapped Looop Lapeta, which will head to the theatres on October 22 this year. She also shot for Anurag Basu’s Dobaara, which marks their collaboration after 2018 release Manmarziyaan.

Taapsee also has Haseen Dilruba, Rashmi Rocket and Woh Ladki Hai Kahaan in her kitty.
