Here are ten things to know about Taapsee Pannu-starrer Rashmi Rocket.

  • Pannu's upcoming sports drama is reportedly about a gifted¬†athlete's journey on a race track. Earlier in August, Pannu announced that she will start shooting for¬†Rashmi Rocket¬†in November. It got¬†delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.¬†‚ÄúJust before the pandemic I was already three months into my training period to transform into a physique closest to that of a sprinter. This has been a long break but with the kind of subject it is... I am excited to restart the journey from scratch again starting with my training,‚ÄĚ Pannu¬†said in a statement.
  • Back from her¬†Maldives vacation,¬†the 33-year-old actor¬†Pannu shared a¬†snap from the sets as she was captured in a blue sports tee and grey joggers.
  • The film is produced by Ronnie Screwvala and¬†directed by Akarsh Khurana, of Irrfan Khan's Karwaan fame.
  • The crew members of the sports-drama have already headed to Bhuj, Gujarat for shooting.¬†‚ÄúWhen she gets a chance to showcase her talent professionally, she excels but also realises that the race to the finish line is peppered with many hurdles, and what seems like an athletic contest turns into her personal battle for respect, honour, and even her very identity,‚ÄĚ the official plotline read.
  • Rashmi Rocket will tell the story of a young girl from a village. According to the filmmakers, the girl is blessed with a gift of "speed", which will inspire her villagers to call her "rocket". This is a story about showcasing hidden talent despite facing numerous societal challenges.¬†Bhavesh Joshi Superhero actor Priyanshu Painyuli will play Pannu's on-screen husband, India Today reported.
  • The film's first motion poster was shared last year in August. On Twitter, Pannu wrote, "On your marks...Get set....Halo.. Meet the headstrong and fearless #RashmiRocket."

  • ¬†Last month, the actress had shared snippets of her¬†strict diet routine for her role in the film. She¬†has been undergoing vigorous training and she actively shares daily updates on her Instagram stories.¬†In one of her posts shared from Maldives, Pannu wrote: "While I take a break, my super-efficient Munmun Ganeriwal continues to hold the fort for me. As she shifts me into a shredding diet for Rashmi Rocket. She gets me to indulge in this yummy, holiday breakfast of eggs, avocados, and mushrooms rich in proteins and good fats. As they say, the right people in your life can get things 'floating' for you and in my case, it's done quite literally."

  • Apart from the sports drama, Pannu also has Haseen Dilruba, Looop Lapeta¬†and Shabaash Mithu¬†in her kitty.
  • Recently, the Pink star also shared a glimpse from the sets of¬†Haseen Dilruba. "Finally, after shooting during the coldest days in Haridwar to sultry hot days in Mumbai this film has probably experienced all seasons and human emotions possible under the sun (including the Pandemic).¬†Here‚Äôs to getting ‚Äėpulp fiction‚Äô back on screen with the character you either love to hate or hate to love...," she shared attaching a joyous moment with her co-stars.

  • Pannu was last seen on the big screen in Anubhav Sinha''s Thappad, which released in February 2020. The film that triggered a conversation on domestic violence, bagged two nominations at the 14th Asian Film Awards. Set in Kutch, Gujarat,¬†Rashmi Rocket¬†is expected to release next year.
