Ranveer Singh will star as Kapil Dev in ’83, Shahid Kapoor will play an older batsman in the Jersey remake, and now Taapsee Pannu might bring the top run-scorer in women’s international cricket to life on screen too. Taapsee’s in talks to step into Mithali Raj’s spikes for a Viacom 18-backed biopic. If all goes well, she’ll hit the nets in early 2020 to learn how to play like the former captain before filming begins mid-year. Mithali has said she hopes the movie inspires more young girls to take up cricket. We hope it does too!
