The trailer of Taapsee Pannu-starrer Shabaash Mithu dropped in today. The film, directed by Srijit Mukherji and written by Priya Aven, is a biographical sports drama based on the life of Mithali Raj, former test and ODI captain of India women’s national cricket team. Shabaash Mithu is produced by Viacom18 Studios and will be released in theatres on July 15.

Sharing the trailer on Twitter, Taapsee Pannu said, "You know the name, now get ready to see the story behind what makes Mithali a legend. Woman who redefined “The Gentleman’s game”. She created her story and I’m honoured to bring it to you."

The trailer shows Taapsee as Mithali nurturing dreams to become a cricketer since she was a child. The video is interspersed with actual footage of Mithali’s performance on the pitch.  The trailer also shows how Mithali will fight patriarchy and get on top of the game. Vijay Raaz is also seen in the role of Mithali’s coach.

Mithali Raj, who is known for her record-breaking 23-year-long career in international cricket, made over 10000 runs in ODI. The film is a tribute to her.

Previously, Taapsee was seen in Loop Lapeta with Tahir Raj Bhasin. Before that she played the role of an athlete in Rashmi Rocket. The actor will next be seen in Dobaaraa, Blurr, Woh Ladki Hain Kaha? and Dunki.
