In the trailer, Taapsee Pannu plays Mithu, a girl who wants to be a cricketer. Everyone mocks her for her wish, except her coach, played by Vijay Raaz. He recognizes her potential and accepts her into the girl’s cricket team. Mithu, on the other hand, has it tough because she is bullied and ridiculed. She learns to stand tall in the face of ridicule and to hold her own in society. The film looks to be an inspiring biopic, albeit a little cliched. Watch the trailer below,
