For my undying love for sports and my country…… Meet Harpreet aka Preet – a person who believes in pushing boundaries on as well as off the field!

According to the media reports, Taapsee Pannu is set to play Mithali Raj, captain of the Indian women’s ODI cricket team, in her next film. The reports further suggested that the actress has given her nod to portray Mithali Raj in her biopic.
However, there is no official word on the development.
Earlier, Taapsee spoke to PTI about Mithali Raj biopic. She 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.”
Mithali is the highest run-scorer in women’s international cricket and the only woman cricketer to surpass the 6,000 run mark in ODIs.
