Taapsee Pannu will be seen in the biopic on Indian cricketer Mithali Raj which has been titled as Shabaash Mithu. The film was announced a couple of months ago, and now, the makers have unveiled the first official poster of the movie.

Taapsee Pannu took to Instagram to share the poster with her fans. The actress posted, “‘I have always been asked who’s your favourite male cricketer but you should ask them who their favourite female cricketer is.’ The statement that made every cricket lover pause n introspect that do they love the game or the gender playing it. Skipper, u will be the ultimate ‘Game Changer’ ! @mithaliraj #ShabaashMithu @rahulpdholakia @viacom18studios #AjitAndhare @priyaaven.”

Taapsee is seen sporting the Indian cricket jersey in the poster and we have to say that the actress has nailed it as Mithali Raj.

The movie was announced last year on Mithali’s birthday. Taapsee had posted on Instagram, “Happy Happy Birthday Captain @mithaliraj ! You have made all of us proud in more than many ways and it’s truly an honour to be chosen to showcase your journey on screen. On this Birthday of yours I don’t know what gift I can give you but this promise that I shall give it all I have to make sure you will be proud of what you see of yourself on screen with #ShabaashMithu P.S- I am all prepared to learn THE ‘cover drive’ ? #HappyBirthdayCaptain.”

Directed by Rahul Dholakia, Shabaash Mithu is slated to release on 5th Feb 2021.
