Filmmaker Srijit Mukherji has dropped the trailer of “Shabaash Mithu”, a Taapsee Pannu-starrer biopic on former India women’s cricket team captain Mithali Raj. The film is set to hit theatres on July 15. The film has been written by Priyan Aven who makes her debut as a screenplay writer with Shabaash Mithu. Amit Trivedi has provided music for the film with lyrics by Swanand Kirkire, Kausar Munir and Raghav M. Kumar, and sound designed by Academy Award winner Rasool Pookutty.
The trailer shows glimpses from the inspirational life of Mithali, the highest run scorer in international women’s cricket and an inspiration for several budding women cricketers in India. It shows Mithali’s journey not only as a cricketer but also as a woman sportsperson fighting for parity in a male-dominated sport.
