Taapsee Pannu is gearing up to play former captain of the Indian women's cricket team, Mithali Raj, in the biopic "Shabaash Mithu". The actress informs shooting for the film will start in the middle of 2020.

"It is going to be difficult, I know. I watch cricket a lot but I never played the game. So, it is going to be challenging for me. Mithali (Raj) has already told me that 'I'd like to see how you play the cover drive!' So, I dream of cover drives now," Taapsee laughed.
