New Delhi: The makers have dropped the trailer of Taapsee Pannu’s much-awaited movie Shabaash Mithu. Helmed by Srijit Mukherji, the film is based on the life of the former captain of the Indian Women’s Cricket team Mithali Raj. The trailer opens with Mithali (Taapsee) hitting fours and sixes, while in the background, we can hear people cheering for India. It then moves on to her childhood, a young Tamilian girl who is caught on the wrong foot after she catches a ball hit by her brother. Eventually, her talent is recognised by Vijay Raaz, a coach, and he encourages Mithali’s family to let her play cricket. Her family agrees, and she begins training. But her journey to the top was not easy.
As the trailer continues, Mithali is seen getting mocked and ridiculed by her fellow trainees. However, she learns to stand tall against them. The trailer also highlights the struggle of the women’s cricket team to make their own identity. She raises her voice against the cricket board for their own jersey with their names written on it instead of the male cricketers.
