Bollywood actor Taapsee Pannu has always been lauded for her strong performances in all her films. The actor who made her Bollywood debut with Chashme Baddoor has quite a few projects in her bag this year.
The Pink actor recently wrapped her shoot for Rashmi Rocket and is currently on her way to Goa to complete the last leg of Loop Lapeta. Amid this, Taapsee has begun her cricket training for her upcoming film Shabaash Mithu which is a biopic of the ace cricketer Mithali Raj. The film will be helmed by Rahul Dholakia.
She took to her Instagram stories to give Bollywood buffs a glimpse of her training. She share a picture where the actor can be seen holding a cricket bat. Taapsee wrote: “Let’s start this now! For the skipper @ Mithali Raj # Shabaash Mithu.”
When asked about her training routine, she said: “I’ve never played the game before, have just been a spectator and a hyper ventilating fan of the game. Being on the other side is going to be a huge challenge I’ve thrown at myself. But I feel pressure brings out the best in me. This is probably that one common trait I can identify between me and Mithali.”
Shabaash Mithu is produced by Viacom18 Studios and the story is written by Priya Aven. The upcoming biopic is an inspiring tale of the captain of the Indian Women’s Cricket Team, Mithali Raj. Taapsee will be training with cricket coach Nooshin Al Khadeer.
