Meet the headstrong and fearless Taapsee Pannu as Rashmi Rocket, first look out
After enjoying the success of ‘Mission Mangal‘, Taapsee Pannu is here with her new look from upcoming release ‘Rashmi Rocket’. It is produced by Ronnie Screwvala`s RSVP & Mango People Media Network and directed by Akarsh Khurana. The actress will essay the role of a Gujarati athlete Rashmi in the film.
After teasing fans with glimpses of her upcoming release, Taapsee has now shared the first motion poster of Rashmi Rocket that has taken the internet by storm.
Check out the poster shared by Taapsee here:
In the poster, Taapsee is seen running from the Rann of Kutch towards the race track.
Set in the salt marshes of Kutch, Rashmi Rocket is about a young girl from a village, blessed with a gift. She’s an incredibly fast runner. The village fondly knows her as Rocket. When she gets a chance to showcase her talent professionally, she jumps at the opportunity, only to realize that the race to the finish line is peppered with many hurdles, and what seems like an athletic contest turns into her personal battle for respect, honour, and even her very identity.
“Rashmi Rocket is not a sports person’s biopic. It’s a human story that highlights misogyny in sports and the challenges faced by female athletes,” says Pranjal Khandhdiya from Mango People Media Network.
Rashmi Rocket which is based on an original story by Nanda Periyasamy will be directed by Akarsh Khurana and stars Taapsee Pannu in the lead. It will hit theatres early next year.
