Taapsee Pannu

December 3rd, 1982, an Indian cricket legend was born- ‘Mithali Dorai Raj’ and as she celebrates her birthday today, there could not have been a better occasion to announce Viacom18 Studios’ next ‘Shabaash Mithu’. The Studio with an impressive record of stories with strong women characters from KahaaniQueenMary Kom to Padmaavat has roped in Taapsee Pannu to headline the film and signed Rahul Dholakia as the Director.

Ajit Andhare, COO, Viacom18 Studios, says, “The story idea struck me about a year ago while watching the movie “Hidden Figures”. After securing the rights we worked with several external writers to develop the script. However, it was our own creative director Priya Aven who cracked the script I was looking for. So, it’s a completely home-grown film for us. Mithali Raj is a name that stands for women power in the world of Indian cricket. Playing her will be the fearless Taapsee Pannu, who is not just a powerhouse of talent but also the face of the new age woman in Bollywood. Viacom18 Studios is proud to bring this untold story of rise of Indian women cricket to life on screen.”

Mithali Raj adds, “I have always stood for and voiced my opinion for equal opportunity for women not just in cricket but across all fields. I want to thank Ajit Andhare and Viacom18 Studios for not just bringing alive my story on screen but also for giving me a bigger platform to be able to reach out to young women who dare to dream.”

Taapsee Pannu fills in, “It’s truly an honour to play the role of India’s most successful captain where Women’s Cricket is concerned. Even though I have already started feeling the pressure of stepping in her shoes, I don’t think I want to trade this place with anyone else right now. She has always been brave and strong to back truth and her idols, and that is the connect I feel with her. The way she changed the way women’s cricket is perceived and seen in India is truly a story worth telling. kudos to Viacom18 Studios for choosing to tell this story. I look forward to working with Rahul Dholakia for this first of its kind story and to learn yet another sport which is treated as a religion in our country, cricket.”

Thappad par disclaimer nahi?

Taapsee Pannu and makers of Thappad ask a pertinent question thorough a unique Change.org petition

From the trailer of the film with the tag line, “Thappad- Bas itni si baat?”, which created wide banter as well as tremors that indicate the serious impact to a slap to the multi-city ongoing screenings, Thappad is being hailed as the most important film of the year.

The makers of the film have been dropping message-driven promo units to garner the right conversations. Taapsee Pannu and the makers have now extended their support to a Change.org petition, asking for disclaimers to be added in films that showcase on-screen domestic violence scenes.

To deliver this striking message, Taapsee is seen in a concept video questioning viewers – why don’t we have a disclaimer for ‘Thappad’ on-screen when we have one for alcohol consumption, smoking and animal cruelty?

Change.org India and the makers of Thappad have come together to urge the censor board to make it mandatory for films that showcase any kind of domestic violence in their films to carry a disclaimer.

Taapsee Pannu took to her Twitter handle and shared the video saying, “………….”. (her link and copy to be added here once she’s posted it )

Nida Hasan, Country Director, Change.org India, “When most of our films are filled with misogynistic portrayals of women, films like Thappad trigger our collective conscience. Taapsee’s support for Mahika’s petition is a powerful statement for the Indian film industry to take responsibility for the right messaging on domestic violence that affects millions of women in our country every day.”

The actress urges the viewers to sign a petition after the entire video takes stock of everything that is shown as a disclaimer for a film, much in a conversation between the two lead actors. Definitely, the makers are coming up with unique takes with each video. Not only the earlier asset got a strike for being the most reported, as was asked by Taapsee from the audience but even this video is set to become a movement with its impactful message.
