The trailer of Shabaash Mithu, starring Taapsee Pannu, has just dropped. The film is a biopic based on the life of ace cricketer Mithali Raj, the former captain of the Indian Women’s Cricket Team. Mithali Raj has a 23-year career in international cricket and has made over 10,000 runs in ODI, breaking several records. The film follows her journey of becoming a cricketer against all odds.

In the trailer, Taapsee Pannu plays Mithu, a girl who dreams of becoming cricketer. However, she is mocked by everyone for this wish, except by her coach, played by Vijay Raaz. He sees the potential in her and takes her on board the girls cricket team. However, nothing comes easy for Mithu as she is bullied and ridiculed. She learns to stand tall against the mockery, and holds her own against society. The film promises to be an inspiring biopic, even if a tad cliched.

The struggle of the women’s cricket team to make their own identity is also shown. The trailer, launched by former cricketer Sourav Ganguly, furthers the message ‘Nazariya badlo, khel badalgaya (the game will change when you change the perspective)’.

Shabaash Mithu has been shot across domestic and international locations. Produced by Viacom18 Studios, Shabaash Mithu’s creative producer is Ajit Andhare, while the film is directed by Srijit Mukherji and written by Priya Aven.

Earlier last year, Taapsee had shared a photo after wrapping up the shoot. She wrote, “I was 8 when someone made me dream that one day, cricket won’t be just a gentleman’s game. Even we will have our team, an identity. ‘Women in Blue’. We are coming soon. #ShabaashMithu It’s a film wrap! Get ready to cheer for the World Cup 2022!#WomenInBlue.”
