Shabaash Mithu Trailer: The makers have released the trailer of Taapsee Pannu’s much awaited film Shabaash Mithu. Helmed by Srijit Mukherjee, the film is based on the life of Mithali Raj, former captain of the Indian women’s cricket team. The trailer begins with Mithali (Taapsee) hitting fours and sixes while in the background we can hear people cheering for India. It then goes back to her childhood, a young Tamil girl who is caught on the wrong foot after catching a ball hit by her brother. Eventually, her talent is recognized by a coach, Vijay Raj, and he encourages Mithali’s family to let her play cricket. Her family agrees, and she begins training. But his journey to the summit was not easy.
As the trailer continues, Mithali is seen mocking and ridiculing her fellow trainees. However, she learns to stand against them. The trailer also depicts the struggle of the women’s cricket team to make their mark. She raises her voice against the cricket board for its jerseys, which have their names written instead of male cricketers.
