The first look of Mithali Raj’s biopic Shabaash Mithu is out. The film, starring Taapsee Pannu in the lead role, will be based on the life of Indian women’s cricket team captain Mithali Raj.
The poster features Taapsee as an intense Mithali in action. The poster was shared on Twitter with a caption that read, “Time to stand up for the Women in Blue! Presenting the first look of #ShabaashMithu. A Viacom18 Studios film.”
Mithali Raj, 37, had retired last year from the T20 format. However, she is still the One Day International captain.
