Taapsee Pannu’s much anticipated film ‘Shabaash Mithu’, based on the life of iconic cricketer Mithali Raj, is all set to release on July 15.

As the film is nearing its release date, the team of ‘Shabaash Mithu’ is leaving no stone unturned to promote it. Taapsee Pannu, Mithali Raj along with the National Award-winning director Srijit Mukherji visited Eden Gardens, in Kolkata, to promote their film and kickstarted their city promotion.

On the visit, Mithali Raj says, “Eden Gardens is one of the warmest homes of cricket and it is my absolute pleasure to be here. Playing here has been an honour and it feels humbling, being here today for Shabaash Mithu.”

Power house performer, Taapsee Pannu adds, “It feels surreal kicking off our city trail from here. I have watched many matches here but never imagined that I would be standing here for a movie. It’s a different feeling, knowing and understanding the history and the importance of this space to the sport.”

Filmmaker and a true cricket lover, Srijit Mukherji is overjoyed as he adds, “I feel it’s only apt to start this innings from my home ground. It’s heartwarming and an honour.”
