The biopic of Mithali Raj, the captain of the Indian women’s cricket team, was announced a few months ago. However, we hear that the project has been delayed.

The inspirational story of the young sportswoman was supposed to go on floors this year, but that may no longer be the case.

 

“The script is still being developed. Her story is really inspiring, so the makers want to ensure that they put their best foot forward. The film is delayed, but it’s very much still happening,” a source reveals.
