Shabaash Mithu is biopic of Cricket Legend Mithali Raj. Mithali retired recently after Indian ODI World Cup. She inspired generations of Indian Women and women around the world to play cricket in attacking style.
Tapsee Pannu is playing Mithali Raj’s character in the biopic. Mithali hails from Hyderabad and she had to go through many prejudices to achieve the position she secured in Indian National Cricket Team.
She fought for payment rise, she decided to do slightly hot photoshoot and she had been in her share of controversies for her looks too. She played cricket in attacking vain when she first entered on to the scene and then turned slightly slow. She is the only batter to score 10,000 ODI runs in Women’s International Cricket.
The movie trailer though looks like it touches on all these aspects from her life it follows some clichés for sports drama following the example of Chak De India. Still, this looks good as it gives a woman protagonist more importance without any supporting “Superstar” as another lead. Movie is releasing on 7th July, all over the world and in India.
