Taapsee Pannu trains with Mithali Rajâs friend for Shabaash Mithu

Just a few months back Taapsee Pannu had given it her all to train as a fastest runner for her film Rashmi Rocket. For endless hours on the field and making sure that she can run like an athlete to spend hours in the gym to get that fit physique, the actress had done it all. Now Taapsee Pannu is stepping into a new project and makes sure she makes her mark for the same.

Taapsee Pannu has started prepping for her next Shabaash Mithu which is a biopic based on Indian Women’s ODI Cricket Team captain, Mithali Dorai Raj. We hear Taapsee Pannu is presently training under Mithali Raj’s friend, ex-colleague and former India player Nooshin Al Khadeer for the film. As a long-time friend and former teammate, Nooshin is aptly suited to advise and train Taapsee not only in Mithali’s iconic style of cricket but also on other finer aspects of emulating the ace cricketer on screen such as her poise, stance and unique traits.

And even though hailing from such starkly different professions, there are many similarities between Taapsee and Mithali. Elaborating on this, Nooshin said, “Taapsee is extremely dedicated and her commitment to playing cricket like a professional is commendable. It is heartening to see so many common traits between Taapsee and Mithali like dedication, a go-getter attitude and tenacity.”
With this crucial link in place, all eyes are on Taapsee to bring alive this much anticipated film. The film is directed by Rahul Dholakia and written by Priya Aven. The actress is also shooting for Anurag Kashyap’s next titled Do-Bara.
