While there were reports that the Pink actress will be playing the role of the cricketer in the latter’s biopic, Taapsee never confirmed the same. Today, on Mithali’s birthday Taapsee took to social media to announce the news.

Taapsee shared a number of pictures of herself with the skipper in which Mithali is seen cutting a cake. Along with the pictures, Taapsee wrote, “Happy Happy Birthday Captain @mithaliraj! You have made all of us proud in more than many ways and it’s truly an honour to be chosen to showcase your journey on screen. On this Birthday of yours I don’t know what gift I can give you but this promise that I shall give it all I have to make sure you will be proud of what you see of yourself on screen with #ShabaashMithu. PS- I am all prepared to learn THE cover drive’ #HappyBirthdayCaptain (sic).”

As per the quotes in PTI, talking about the film, the Badla actress had replied, “The script is not in place so it’s too early to talk about it. Right now, they are collecting material and the script has not been written yet. If they offer me, I will be very happy. I really want to do a sports biopic.”

It seems Taapsee’s wish has been granted as she will be seen in a number of sports biopics, last being Saand Ki Aankh.
