Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], June 20 (ANI): The much-awaited trailer of Taapsee Pannu's 'Shabaash Mithu' is finally out and the actor looks fierce as she steps into the shoes of former Indian women's cricket captain Mithali Raj.
In the trailer, Taapsee Pannu portrays the role of Mithu, a small-town girl with many big dreams in her eyes, to create her own space in the male dominating world and to change the gentleman's game. No one believes Mithu that she can play cricket for India, except for her coach, played by actor Vijay Raaz, who shows Mithu the right path to achieve all her dreams. However, nothing comes easy to her path as she is bullied and ridiculed by other teammates and society. She learns to stand tall against all odds and leads team India from the front.

Woman who redefined "The Gentleman's game" She created HERSTORY and I'm honoured to bring it to you #ShabaashMithu 15th JULY 2022 #ShabaashMithuTrailer #GirlWhoChangedTheGame".
