Rashmi Rocket to release on ZEE5 on this date
The film stars Taapsee Pannu as a gifted sprinter from Kutch
Taapsee Pannu-starrer Rashmi Rocket will release on October 15 on ZEE5. The makers announced the Dussehra release with a new poster.
Rashmi Rocket is directed by Akarsh Khurana and produced by RSVP and Mango People Media. It tells the story of a gifted sprinter from a village in Kutch. The film is based on an original story by Nanda Periyasamy.
"This film is differently special," Taapsee shares. "I’ve always been approached when either the script or the director is ready to make the film but one line of this story fell in my lap in Chennai and then from there to it becoming a full-fledged film has been a feeling I haven’t experienced with any other film before. Everyone was just so sure about the story from day 1 that it was never a tough job to convince any of the stakeholders to join hands and give their best for this film. Hence the result of this film will affect me a lot more than my other films. Also, I’m extremely proud of it.”
Adds director Akarsh Khurana, “As a viewer, I've always been fond of courtroom dramas, mature romances, and sports films. As a storyteller, I've always been drawn to characters on journeys, both external and internal. This film gave me the unique and exciting opportunity to work on something that had all of these elements, with a fantastic ensemble of actors.”
Rashmi Rocket also stars Supriya Pathak, Abhishek Banerjee, Priyanshu Painyuli, and Supriya Pilgaonkar.
