Rashmi Rocket cast: Taapsee Pannu's upcoming film on gender testing, that many women athletes have been subjected to, will be releasing this month. Pannu underwent an immense physical transformation for the film, to get an athlete's body. Her photos and videos showcasing the transformation went viral on social media.

Directed by Akarsh Khurana, who has previously helmed films like High Jack and Karwaan, the film touches on subjects like gender verification testing and hyperandrogenism, which haven't been showcased in Hindi sports dramas so far. In 2014,  Indian ace sprinter Dutee Chand was dropped from the Indian contingent headed for the Commonwealth Games after the Athletic Federation of India revealed that she suffered from hyperandrogenism- a condition that leads to the production of high levels of androgens in women. Chand went on to challenge The International Association of Athletics Federations guidelines and emerged victorious, gaining back her way to the track.

However, the writer of Rashmi Rocket, Aniruddha Guha said in a recent interview that the film is not Chand's story, "Our film is a tribute to several sportswomen around the world who've had to undergo gender testing and bear the social and psychological ramifications that come attached with this archaic practice."
