Mumbai: Bollywood actress Taapsee Pannu considers herself lucky to play the character of cricketer Mithali Raj. Indian Women Cricket Team skipper and women's cricket's biggest superstar Mithali aka Mithu as fondly called by family and friends, had announced her retirement from all forms of the game. 

Taapsee Pannu is playing the role of Mithali Raj in Mithali Raj's biopic Shabaash Mithu. After Mithali Raj's announcement, Taapsee Pannu has expressed her feelings by issuing a statement. Taapsee Pannu said, "There are all the cricketers who have many records in their name. There are also cricketers who have a huge fan following. There are cricketers who inspire you and make you believe that if they can, you can too. And then you have Mithali, who did it all in her classic dignified style."

"Mithali will be remembered for her contribution to women cricket not only in her own country but all over the world. I consider myself one of the lucky fans to get to live 23 years of your life on camera, which taught me a lot about resilience along with stubbornness. She is such a legend, to whom there is less to thank," added Taapsee.

In 'Shabaash Mithu', a glimpse of Mithali's life and her ups and downs will be seen. The film is directed by Srijit Mukherjee.
