Taapsee Pannu's 'Shabaash Mithu' to stream on Voot Select soon
Shabaash Mithu is set to make its OTT debut soon. After its theatrical premiere on July 15, the film will reportedly premiere on the OTT platform Voot Select. The streamer has not yet announced its release date. Starring Taapsee Pannu in the role of ace Indian cricketer Mithali Raj, it marked the fourth sports drama in the actor's career. Here's more.
Why does this story matter?
Before Shabaash Mithu, Pannu essayed an athlete's character thrice. In Saand Ki Aankh, she played Prakashi Tomar, a senior sharpshooter champion. Her other sports dramas include Soorma and Rashmi Rocket. Despite decent reviews from critics and viewers, Shabaash Mithu failed at the box office. However, many have been awaiting the film's OTT outing to watch Tapsee play one of the most successful women cricketers.
'Looking forward to seeing audience' reaction'
Speaking of the film's OTT debut, Taapsee Pannu said, "I am very excited with its release on Voot Select as now this story will have the opportunity to reach a much wider audience and...inspire other young girls and women to follow their...passion in sports, akin to...cricket superstar Mithali Raj." "Really looking forward to seeing the audiences' reaction to the movie's OTT release," she added.
