Now, Taapsee Pannu has announced that she will be essaying the life of Indian women cricket team captain, Mithali Raj, in her next.

The Badla actress took to her Instagram handle to make an announcement about the sports biopic on the birthday of Mithali Raj. Taapsee Pannu shared a picture of her with the cricket captain cutting her birthday cake as she wrote, “On this Birthday of yours I don’t know what gift I can give you but this promise that I shall give it all I have to make sure you will be proud of what you see of yourself on screen with #ShabaashMithu”
