Taapsee Pannu-starrer Rashmi Rocket to begin filming in November
The film follows a young girl from Kutch who becomes a professional sprinter
Filming of Taapsee Pannu-starrer Rashmi Rocket will begin in November. The sports drama is about a young girl from Kutch who is an incredibly fast runner. Her village fondly knows her as 'Rocket'. When she gets a chance to showcase her talent professionally, she excels but also realises that the race to the finish line is peppered with hurdles.
Rashmi Rocket is written by Nanda Periyasamy, Aniruddha Guha and Kanika Dhillon. The film will be helmed by Akarsh Khurana (High Jack, Karwaan).
“We were all set to shoot when the pandemic struck. I’m glad that we’re resuming soon,” Akarsh said. “The team and I have been waiting eagerly to set off on this journey. It’s a terrific story that I’m excited to tell.”
Taapsee shared she has been involved with Rashmi Rocket from its inception. “Just before the pandemic, I was already three months into my training period to transform into a physique closest to that of a sprinter. This has been a long break, but with the kind of subject it is, I am excited to restart the journey from scratch again starting with my training,” Taapsee said.
She will be joined by Priyanshu Painyuli in a prominent role. The music of Rashmi Rocket will be composed by Amit Trivedi. The film is expected to be out in 2021.
