Cricket fans have eagerly been waiting for Mithali Raj‘s biopic ‘Shabaash Mithu‘ ever since its announcement. The fans have now gotten to see a glimpse into the veteran cricketer’s life with the trailer launch of her biopic. The Taapsee Pannu-starrer film looks very promising as the fans found her convincing as the former Indian captain.

Shabaash Mithu, directed by Srijit Mukherji and produced by Viacom18 Studios, will be released in theatres on July 15, 2022. The Bollywood actress posted the announcement for the trailer of the film on Twitter. “Mithali Raj You know the name, now get ready to see the story behind what makes her the legend.

The right-handed batter will be remembered for her incredible run-scoring exploits, including a record 7,805 runs in One-Day Internationals, about 2,000 more than former England captain Charlotte Edwards, who is the second-highest ODI run-scorer.
