Taapsee Pannu reveals her training plans for Mithali Raj's biopic 'Shabaash Mithu'

Actress Taapsee Pannu, who is currently busy with the shoot of ‘Rashmi Rocket’ will soon be stepping into Indian cricketer Mithali Raj’s shoes in her next project titled ‘Shabaash Mithu’.

In a recent interview, the 33-year-old actress opened up about her plans for the biopic based on the captain of the Indian women’s national cricket team. Taapsee revealed that she’ll be undergoing a three-month cricket training and would keep practising until she wraps the film’s shoot.

The ‘Thappad’ actress, who recently visited the Maldives with her siblings and boyfriend Mathias Boe also revealed that she will also take a small break after the wrap of ‘Looop Lapeta’ and ‘Rashmi Rocket’.

Meanwhile, talking about her upcoming film ‘Rashmi Rocket’, Taapsee told Bombay Times, “I needed three months to make myself look like an athlete, physically. I was eating specific food in measured proportions and travelling like crazy. I asked for a little break and God gave me five months (COVID-19 lockdown) – a tad too many!”

‘Shabaash Mithu’ will be helmed by Rahul Dholakia and was originally scheduled to release on 5th February 2021 but due to the pandemic, the film release has been postponed.
