The makers have dropped the trailer of Taapsee Pannu's much-awaited movie Shabaash Mithu.

Helmed by Srijit Mukherji, the film is based on the life of the former captain of the Indian Women's Cricket team Mithali Raj.

The trailer opens with Mithali (Taapsee) hitting fours and sixes, while  in the background, we can hear people cheering for India.

It then moves on to her childhood, a young Tamilian girl who is caught  on the wrong foot after she catches a ball hit by her brother.

Eventually, her talent is recognised by Vijay Raaz, a coach, and he  encourages Mithali's family to let her play cricket. Her family agrees,  and she begins training. But her journey to the top was not easy.

The trailer also highlights the struggle of the women's cricket team to make their own identity.

Apart from Taapsee Pannu, the film also stars Vijay Raaz and Mumtaz Sorcar as Jhulan Goswami. Shabaash Mithu is slated to hit the theatres on July 15, 2022.
