The teaser for Taapsee Pannu’s Shabaash Mithu has just dropped. The film is based on cricketer Mithali Raj, who has shattered many records, and is the captain of the Indian Women’s cricket team.
The teaser emphasises the achievements of the women’s cricket team as well as the illustrious cricketer. The film chronicles the highs and lows, setbacks, and moments of euphoria of Mithali’s life.
