After playing a hockey player in Soorma, Taapsee has reportedly agreed to do the film but is yet to sign and make it official, a report in Mumbai Mirror stated. “The formalities will be done once the studio has a director They have also locked the story but the script is still being developed,” a source told the tabloid.
Speaking about playing Mithali, the actress said, “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,” Taapsee told PTI. Mithali is the only woman cricketer to cross 6,000 runs in the ODIs. Just last week, she completed 20 years in International Cricket.
In another biopic of sorts, Taapsee will be seen alongside Bhumi Pednekar in Saand Ki Aankh playing the world’s oldest sharpshooters, Chandro Tomar and her sister-in-law Prakashi Tomar, in the Anurag Kashyap production.
