It's official! Badla actress, Taapsee Pannu will be seen stepping into Mithali Raj's shoes in her biopic that will go on floors in 2020. In one of her earlier interactions, Pannu had expressed a desire to work in a sport's biopic but had insisted that nothing's materialised on that front. "The script is not in place so it's too early to talk about it. Right now, they are collecting material and the script has not been written yet. If they offer me, I will be very happy. I really want to do a sports biopic," she said when asked if Mithali Raj biopic is indeed happening. Guess, the project was always in the pipeline and it was only a matter of time before she was officially announced as its lead. Taapsee Pannu to Play Double Role in Sanjay Leela Bhansali-Produced ‘Sia Jia’.

Taapsee took to her social media account to announce the biopic while wishing the Indian women's cricket team captain on her birthday. "Happy Happy Birthday Captain @mithaliraj ! You have made all of us proud in more than many ways and it’s truly an honour to be chosen to showcase your journey on screen. On this Birthday of yours I don’t know what gift I can give you but this promise that I shall give it all I have to make sure you will be proud of what you see of yourself on screen with #ShabaashMithu", she captioned while sharing a picture with Mithali Raj. Taapsee Pannu and Vikrant Massey All Set to Team Up for a Romantic Thriller - Read Deets Inside.

Taapsee earlier played a hockey player in Diljit Dosanjh's Soorma and later a shooter in Saand ki Aankh. She also has Ronnie Screvwala's Rocket Rashmi that revolves around a fictional Gujarati girl who is a fast runner. With three sports-based movies already in her kitty, she seems like a wise and apt choice for Mitahli Raj biopic. What are your thoughts about it? Let us know by dropping a comment in the box below.
