Talking about the film helmed by Rahul Dholakia, earlier the ‘Thappad’ actress told Bombay Times, “It was already daunting to play her(Mithali) on the big screen, and now, the stakes are even higher. She holds a record for her 50s. And now, she has surpassed the 10,000-run mark. She is one of the most experienced women cricketers we have right now. There is a lot of pressure to play her on screen. It was already at its maximum when she achieved this high tally.”
“For Mithali, no achievement of hers has ever been more important than the team’s performance. Today, I feel tremendous pressure as I get close to the shooting date. I am anxious because now, I am in the last stages of my training. We will start shooting in Mumbai towards the last week of March. I’m getting excitementwale jitters to play a living, active legend” she exclaimed.
