It is known for all that the biopic of Indian women’s cricket captain Mithali Raj is all set to hit the silver screen soon. The movie was announced sometimes back and fans couldn’t keep up their calm when it came to the fore that versatile actress Taapsee Pannu would be playing the role of Raj in the movie. Pannu herself seemed interested in acing the role and opened up several times on her keenness to take up the project.

In the recent turn of events, Pannu took to her social media to announce the successful wrap-up of the movie. She quoted some famous lines from the movie which actually narrate the struggles of Raj and the pain she took up while entering the ‘gentlemen’s game.’

“8 ki thi jab kisi ne ek Sapna dikhaya tha, ki ek din ayega jab Cricket sirf gentleman’s game nahi hoga. Humaari bhi ek team hogi, ek pehchaan hogi. “Women in Blue” Aa rahe hai hum, Jald hi #ShabaashMithu. ITS A FILM WRAP! Get ready to cheer for the World Cup 2022 #WomenInBlue,” tweeted Pannu.

It has to be noted that Raj currently leads the Indian women’s ODI and Test side and stands to be the highest run-getter in women’s international cricket. Even moving toward the end of her career, she remains second to none while speaking up with her bat. She has even stated in earlier events that she is waiting for the movie eagerly.

Mithali Raj wants BCCI to focus on 2022 WC

Recently, Raj also opened up on how BCCI should currently focus on the World Cup rather than talking of women’s IPL. If the team does well, it will automatically be a huge boost for the team.

“Right now, I feel instead of talking about the IPL, it’s important that we focus on the World Cup as it’s a major event. At the moment it’s important for me to get the team prepared for the World Cup. If the team does well in the World Cup, then it will be a huge boost for the sport in the country and for the domestic players as well,” said Mithali recently as quoted by Cricket.com.
