The film traces Mithali Raj’s journey from her childhood to the struggles she faced as she took the Indian women’s cricket team to the ICC World Cup finals, four times. A star Bharatanatyam dancer in her class, a young Mithali held the bat for the first time in the company of her friends, which then led to a journey of sheer grit, determination, and hard work, as she went on to eventually become the youngest captain of Indian Women’s Cricket Team. But in a country that worships the ‘Men in Blue’, Mithali and her battalion had to overcome some serious obstacles to emerge as the celebrated ‘Women in Blue’.

Taapsee Pannu shared her excitement on the movie’s OTT release on Voot Select and stated, “This film is very close to me. As someone who prides in championing roles and characters that celebrate women, playing the character of an iconic and truly inspiring cricketer has been a matter of immense pride and satisfaction. It was a challenging character to portray, especially as every chapter in Mithali’s life revealed the many layers of this national inspiration. I am very excited with its release on Voot Select as now this story will have the opportunity to reach a much wider audience and hopefully, inspire other young girls and women to follow their dreams and passion in sports, akin to the relentless spirit of India’ cricket superstar Mithali Raj. I cannot wait to watch this special story once again at home in the company of friends and family and cherish this special moment, and really looking forward to seeing the audience’s reaction to the movie’s OTT release.”

While Mithali Raj said, “I am humbled and grateful to see my journey so beautifully captured on the celluloid! I am excited for the movie’s OTT release on Voot Select as it will reach a wider spectrum of viewers and help me realise my vision of encouraging young girls to follow their hearts and show the world the magic they can create with their determination and hard work. I want them to know that every success comes with its own challenging journey that is often littered with disheartening failures, and it is these moments that shape the strength of your character. To be able rise once again and continue to fight the battle for your dreams, is what separates the ordinary from the extraordinary! And I hope that this movie inspires every little girl to find her extraordinary self. Tune in to watch my journey on Voot Select.”
