Now a biopic on Mithali Raj in the pipeline

Now a biopic on Mithali Raj in the pipeline”

It was learned that the rights of the film have been acquired by the Viacom18 Motion Pictures.

As the rain of biopic on players like Saina Nehwal has started, now the news has erupted that Viacom 18 Motion Pictures has acquired the official rights of a special movie to be made on Indian women's cricket team captain Mithali Raj.

Noted critic and business analyst Taran Adarsh on Tuesday took to Twitter to confirm the news about a biopic on Indian women's cricket team captain.

However, this particular tournament galvanised the entire country like never before and people were talking about India's women cricket with a lot more intent.

With the success of MS Dhoni: The Untold Story, and the drama-documentary on Sachin Tendulkar, expectations will be quite high from this movie. Mithali is a recipient of Arjuna Award and Padmashri. Raj is the first Indian to have lead the national team to an ICC ODI World Cup final twice - 2005 and 2017.

Mithali, who led the Indian team to the finals of the ICC Women World Cup has been a stellar performer for the Indian team for nearly two decades now, and thus it is only befitting that her story will now reach out to the masses in the country who remain oblivious to women's cricket.

On the other hand, Ajit Andhare, COO, Viacom18 Motion Pictures, said in a statement,"Viacom18 Motion Pictures has always been the pioneer in showcasing content with the portrayal of strong women characters right from "Queen" to "Kahaani" to "Mary Kom".

It was Medallin Sports that acted as the facilitator between Mithali and the Viacom18. The Director of the firm remarked that the India Women skipper has been a thorough inspiration for many in the country.

Earlier, Mithali herself has confirmed the development and while interacting with the press, she stated that her story would inspire young girls to explore sports as a career.
