March 30 : Taapsee Pannu, who is basking in the glory of winning the Best Actress award at the Filmfare Awards 2021, is one of the busiest actresses in Bollywood. Ever since the lockdown was relaxed last year, the Thappad actress has been shooting back to back. After completing the filming of several of her forthcoming films, the actress is now prepping for the film Shabaash Mithu.
The Pink actress is known for making all efforts to get into the skin of the character she plays in the films. She leaves no stone unturned to get into the character—no matter how much she has to train herself for the character. While she was seen training hard on the running track for her fast runner’s role in Rashmi Rocket, now the actress is seen working equally hard to play a cricketer in her forthcoming film Shabaash Mithu.
A biopic of Indian Women’s Cricket Captain Mithali Raj, Shabaash Mithu, is helmed by Rahul Dholakia, and Taapsee plays Mithali Raj in the film.
Taking to her Instagram handle, Taapsee shared a picture on her Instagram handle, where she can be seen batting in the nets as she captioned it as, “Down the line! #WIP #ShabaashMithu.” Taapsee is seen prepping to get cricketing skills perfect as she had earlier said that she had never played cricket before. The actress had also said that playing Mithali Raj is certainly a challenge. Mithali Raj is the first female cricketer in the history of cricket who scored 7000 ODI runs and 75 half-centuries. Shabaash Mithu will soon go on the floors.
On the professional front, Taapsee has recently wrapped up shooting for DoBaara, directed by Anurag Kashyap. The forthcoming thriller marks Taapsee and Anurag’s third collaboration after the hit film Manmarziyaan in 2018.
Meanwhile, Pannu received the prestigious Filmfare Award in the Best Actor in the Leading Role category for her role in Anubhav Sinha's Thappad. In the film, Taapsee played a homemaker who went against all odds to protest against been slapped by her husband and taking a divorce from him that shocked not only her family but her lawyer as well.
