What’s the film about?

The plot of the film revolves around Rashmi (played by Pannu), a Gujarati sprinter who aspires to represent her country at an international level. Her speed makes her a sensation at local events, following which she decides to compete internationally. However, her flourishing career is cut short by gender testing. The film draws inspiration from real-life incidences of women runners being banned for hyperandrogenism.

Famous Indian athlete Dutee Chand too faced a ban due to gender testing, which led to her being dropped out of the Commonwealth Games in 2014 after the federation claimed she suffered from hyperandrogenism. Later, in a landmark judgement, the federation rules were suspended.

However, according to Aniruddha Guha, one of the writers of the film, the film is not inspired by Chand, “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.”
