Directed by Srijit Mukherjee, the trailer of ‘Shabaash Mithu’ is inspiring and motivating. In it, Taapsee plays Mithu, a small-town girl with many big dreams in her eyes, to create her own space in the male-dominated world and to change the gentleman’s game. The film is all set to hit the theatres on July 15, 2022.
Alongside Taapsee Pannu, Mumtaz Sorcar, Vijay Raaz, and Brijendra Kala are part of the star cast. Talking about Mithali, she announced her retirement from all forms of international cricket earlier this month. She represented the Women in Blue for 23 years having made her debut in 1999 at the age of 16. She had smashed a century in her maiden ODI against Ireland.
