Shabaash Mithu is directed by Srijit Mukherji, who replaced filmmaker Rahul Dholakia after the latter had to quit the project owing to a change in schedule.

Backed by Viacom18 Studios, Shabaash Mithu went on floors in Mumbai in April, but its shoot was put on hold due to the second wave of Covid-19.

The makers have also shot the film at the iconic Lord’s cricket ground in London.

Pannu was recently seen in another sports drama, Rashmi Rocket and has a packed slate with films like Looop Lapeta, Anurag Kashyap’s Dobaaraa and thriller Blurr, her maiden production venture.
