Shabaash Mithu trailer: Taapsee Pannu lives story of grit, determination of Women Cricket's GOAT Mithali Raj

New Delhi: 

Taapsee Pannu’s much-awaited Shabaash Mithu trailer is out, and it is as intriguing as it can be. More than Mithali, it’s the story of every Indian woman who aspired/aspires to make a career in cricket. It’s the story of the struggles and successes of the former India captain Mithali Raj. In Shabaash Mithu, Taapsee plays Mithali, with her head determined to make a name for women in blue. Directed by Srijit Mukherji, the film is the first biopic on a woman cricketer. 

The trailer was launched by former Indian cricketer and current BCCI President Sourav Ganguly. The two-minute-forty-four second trailer opens with a young Taapsee interested in the sport but also being deprived of opportunities for being a girl. In one of the scenes, she is scolded by her brother for catching a ball. But, the course of her destiny changes when her coach, efficiently played by Vijay Raaz, comes to her rescue. Amid constant oppression and bullying, she goes on to find a place in the national and international squad. She is then named the captain of the Women’s Indian Cricket Team and rest is history.

Watch the Shabaash Mithu trailer below:

Shabaash Mithu, directed by Srijit Mukherji and produced by Viacom18 Studios, will release in theatres on 15th July. The trailer comes a few days after Mithali announced her retirement from international and national formats of cricket. Following her announcement, Mithali Raj took to Instagram to pen a special note for the cricketer. “Some personalities and their achievements are gender agnostic. You changed the game, now it’s our turn to change the perspective! Etched in history OUR CAPTAIN forever @mithaliraj On to the next innings of life,” she wrote. 

Lauding Mithali, Taapsee had earlier said, “There are cricketers who have records under their name. There are cricketers who have tremendous fan following. There are cricketers who inspire you and make you believe that if they can so can you! And then there’s Mithali who did all of this in her classic graceful style and also changed the game of cricket where the presence of women in concerned.”
