For her role as ace Indian Cricketer Mithali Raj in the biopic, Taapsee will be training with coach Nooshin Al khadeer. Being the dedicated method actor that she is, Taapsee will be training to perfect her every action and stance to play a professional cricketer on screen.
Speaking about her training regimen, Taapsee said, “I’ve never played the game before, have just been a spectator and a hyper ventilating fan of the game. Being on the other side is going to be a huge challenge I’ve thrown at myself. But I feel pressure brings out the best in me. This is probably that one common trait I can identify between me and Mithali.”

An inspiration to billions of young girls in the country, her life is now all set to be documented on the silver screen in this biopic.
