The first song of Taapsee Pannu starrer Shabaash Mithu, titled Fateh, was released on Tuesday. The energetic song, that plays in the background of a training montage, seems like the inspiration anthem for the ‘women in blue’.
Fateh is composed by Salvage Audio Collective and Charan, with vocals by Romy and Charan. Taapsee shared the song on Twitter with a caption that read, “Presenting the perfect walk out track for all our game changers!”
Shabaash Mithu is a biopic based on the life of ace cricketer Mithali Raj, the former captain of the Indian cricket team. In a 23-year career in international cricket, Mithali scored over 10,000 runs in ODI. ”
“Taapsee Pannu admits, that for an ardent fan like her, working in Shah Rukh Khan-led movie Dunki is a personal achievement.
Taapsee has said that Shah Rukh Khan’s films were her introduction to Bollywood.
The Delhi-born actor also revealed that she feels deeply connected with the journey and rise of Shah Rukh Khan, who also is from Delhi.
She said, “He comes from Delhi, same place like me, started from scratch. I don’t miss the opportunity to tell him every time that he is someone who we consider very personal. Even before I met him, his journey felt too personal because of how he started and built an empire for himself,” she said.”
Actor-director R Madhavan, who will star as Nambi Narayanan in the upcoming biopic Rocketry: The Nambi Effect has said that James Bond could not compare to Narayanan.
Madhavan said, What shocked me was that he was given the Padma Bhushan, but nobody knows why he got the Padma Bhushan. He had written a book on his life, and he hadn’t mentioned his achievements. But when I came to know what he did; the first Ivy League scientist from India, or the fact that he went to France with 52 scientists, or the fact that he went to Russia whent the USSR was breaking down… This guy is the father of James Bond, he was absolutely incredible.””
