A brief about the movie
Written by Priya Aven, Shabaash Mithu is being directed by Rahul Dholakia. The film has been produced by Viacom18 Studios. It revolves around the life of Mithali Raj, the captain of the Indian national women's cricket team. However, Taapsee is currently in the middle of several other projects and hence it still remains unclear as to when she will start shooting for this movie.
It's going to be a huge challenge, says Taapsee
Talking about her role, Taapsee reportedly said in a statement, "I've never played the game before, have just been a spectator and a hyperventilating fan of the game (sic)." "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," she further added.
Taapsee is currently working on several projects
Taapsee currently has several projects coming up, which are at different stages of production. She will soon star in the mystery thriller Haseen Dillruba, directed by Vinil Mathew and also starring Vikrant Massey. She also has the sports drama Rashmi Rocket, comedy movie Looop Lapeta and a yet-untitled Tamil film from director Deepak Sundarajan in the pipeline.
