Pannu’s preparation for the role
To prep for the role, Tapsee Pannu trained under Nooshin Al Khadeer, a former cricketer and a friend of Mithali. The shoot was wrapped on November 9, 2021. The scenes were shot in real locations like the Lord’s Cricket Ground in London. These were the locations that held an important and special place in Mithali’s life. While talking about the film, Pannu explained that it was daunting to play Mithali Raj on the screen because the stakes are high. “Mithali Raj is an excellent player who has made records for her 50s and has also surpassed the 10,000-run mark becoming the highest scorer in women’s cricket. She is one of the most experienced women cricket players so there is a lot of pressure to play her on-screen”, she said.
