It has been an eventful and inspiring journey, and I hope that this movie inspires women to take up sports and pursue what they want to do in life.” Also Read – Mithali Raj Retires: A Veteran Who Has Witnessed Women’s Cricket’s Lows And Highs

What do you think are the unique benefits of women working together? To which Mithali replied, “We are a formidable force when we are working together because I think that women, by nature, are more sincere towards their jobs. So, when women work together, they can create magic and do splendid stuff, just like a group of girls in 2017 did when they became part of a revolution in Indian women’s cricket during the ICC Women’s World Cup Final.” Also Read – Taapsee Pannu Shares Emotional Note on Mithali Raj’s Retirement: ‘Some Achievements Are Gender Agnostic’

When asked Tapsee about picking Shabaash Mithu, she said, “I think it was more like the film chose me. I also wanted to do this because very little has been spoken about something that required so much struggle to reach where it has. When we call ourselves a cricket-loving nation, do we mean only a men’s-cricket-loving nation? Or a cricket-regardless-of-the-gender-loving nation? These were the questions that I wanted to raise, and this film became a medium for that.”

Taapsee then had asked, “What are you looking forward to in the days to come, Mithali? What do you see for yourself and for the women’s cricket team?” To which Mithali answered, “The last two to three months have been stressful because of the World Cup. Now I am using this time to enjoy my time off and think about what’s next in store for me. Where women’s cricket is concerned, the graph is only going upward. With the kind of popularity the sport has gained, there has been a lot of support for women’s cricket. BCCI recently announced Women’s IPL for 2023, which will be interesting. Women’s IPL will be one of the biggest things to happen in women’s cricket, and I hope it does the same wonders for the women’s team as it has for the men’s.”
