Mithali Raj Is Getting Her Own Biopic And None Other Than Tapsee Pannu Is In It
The legend who transformed Women’s Cricket is soon getting her own Biopic and Tapsee Pannu is all set to play her on-screen.

One of the greatest female cricketers the world has ever seen, Mithali Raj might get her own biopic and the role would be played by none other than Tapsee Pannu. Former captain of the Indian Women’s cricket team, Mithali Raj is one of the most decorated players in our country, awarded some of the highest honours in the country. Still a part of Indian Cricket Team, Mithali Raj has been credited for revolutionizing women’s cricket in India.

At times when Women's cricket was played in oblivion in India, a girl hailing from Jodhpur, Mithali Raj had entered the cricketing scene. Ever since her debut, Mithali has managed to accomplish a career spanning over 20 years, playing across all formats of cricket and being the highest run scorer for women’s cricket. Often considered as Sachin Tendulkar of Women’s cricket, Mithali has ensured that Women’s cricket doesn’t just remain a faded sport in India.

To honour her legacy and her outstanding career, Viacom18 had announced the start of the project. Tapsee Pannu had verbally agreed to play the part, however, she is yet to sign the official papers. The script is under development and official documents would be signed once a director comes on board.

It’s amazing to see film fraternity finally giving female sportsperson the credit for their hardship and talent.
